Bring your questions and stories to the discussion on Monday, June 10th at 8pm Eastern/5pm Pacific as we explore our life experiences and the lessons we learned that will help our careers.
You have to have passion in your career. The instincts and experience that make your opinions unique have value. Balancing them with your colleagues’ ideas empowers the team to find the best solutions for the challenges and opportunities that arise each day. And when workplace disagreements arise, a productive argument can result in a better outcome for everyone.
Unfortunately, for most of us, finding a job after college, or even when you just want to make a change, doesn’t just happen. There are a lot of steps we have to go through. And we can’t skip steps and hope the perfect job falls in our lap. If you’ve done this before you have a general idea of what you need to do. But just as a refresher, here’s what to expect along your job search timeline.
As a society, we are no strangers to the side effects of automation. When our ancestors developed a plow to till their fields, a single farmer could suddenly do as much work as a dozen men. When the printing press arrived in Europe, scribes who had carefully cultivated their craft quickly found themselves out of work. The biggest difference between modern workers and our industrious ancestors is that we face a much more rapid pace of automation. As the pace of automation increases, workers will have to reassess their skill sets and focus on those essential soft skills that will humanize our automated world.
