GraffitiSoup #45 Are Careers A Thing Of The Past?
Much has to be said of the way that our evolving world has influenced the need to consider a different approach to how we work, when we work and what we expect a “career” to look like.
Will your resume look more like a eBay sellers recommendation for assignments that you have carried out? Will it be a portfolio of your creative work? This all remains to be seen but there are definite changes in the way that a career path is determined and choosing to take on work that is interesting and rewarding will provide the variety and interest levels that enable you to flourish.
Here are some articles that I have read this week that embrace this changing working world.
