the digital age career
The 1-job career, that was the norm in the post-industrialization years, is gone. In the digital and social media and cyber-currency era, what does a career look like? Multi-segment, many projects, different employment modes, share economy, tenure based, band-aided and duct-taped into a long sustainable career. The digital age career tools are certification, test-for-skills, self-learning. These micro tools are relevant and appropriate to short term projects and IT related work; as formal education and academic qualification are to a law or medical career.
Here are 4 initiatives, that we take, to link jobs and extend careers.
