What has changed?

These past 10 years have been very interesting and challenging in terms of employment, training and education, mainly due to the incorporation of the internet that offered cheap communication and a series of numerous new opportunities.


A few facts:

  1. The talent pool has become larger than ever as we are competing globally, not locally
  2. How the “war on talent” is being won by “talent”
  3. Diversity is increasing requiring a global mindset and cultural appreciation
  4. The number of academic degree holders has increased significantly making the issue of differentiation and “standing out” more difficult
  5. University education is not keeping its traditional promise of helping graduates find jobs
  6. Professional Qualifications are becoming more and more popular in a wider variety of disciplines, offering alternatives to professionals who want to differentiate
  7. The tern “Job” is being replaced by “work” and – in many instances, “project”
  8. Employees are switching employers faster than ever, thus requiring them to be agile and produce results faster
  9. Professionals need to update their knowledge at a minimum pace of every 2 years due to changes
  10. Free-lance, and personal branding is on the rise compared to the situation in the 20th century
  11. Behavioural aspects, communication skills and other “soft” skills are at the forefront of performance appraisals in organizations
  12. Employees are creating their own holistic personal brand through social media (i.e. Linkedin). The list goes on…

How does one cope with these dramatic and constant challenges?

Career Management and thinking innovatively in terms of one’s career has become more important than ever as we will all change settings at a greater pace. We need to constantly update our skills and constantly develop ourselves to cope with the amazing technological advances that are affecting employment, business, research, science and education (among other).
