Managing Your Career In a Changing Economy
Wednesday September 23
Instructor: Larry Elle
The current pandemic and working remotely are accelerating changes in the American economy that will affect your career. Today, flattening corporate hierarchies and a shrinking career ladder cost thousands of middle-management jobs, not to mention a shifting of many positions overseas. The number of jobs you’ll now hold over a lifetime has increased from four to eight, and it’s rising!
These trends do impact your career. In this workshop we’ll explore the career model of Dalton/Thompson, a four stages model of career movement. We’ll look at what stage your career is in, and how your values orientation influences your career progression. Key to your career success is discovering your “Career Best” area and being able to articulate that to employers. This workshop provides you with the overview you’ll need to move your career forward and stop depending on an on-again, off-again economy to ensure your career success.
What you’ll learn in this workshop:
- Major trends impacting the American economy and your career
- The Four Stage Model of Career Development and determining your stage
- Five key value orientations impacting your career stage
- Determining your “Career Best” area
- How to differentiate yourself to get hired!
