Machine learning & digital automation will eliminate 75 million jobs by 2025 - Sept. 2018 / World Economic Forum

Borrowing from the language of jazz musicians, the gig economy refers to the significant increase of short term, contract, temporary and freelance work being done today in organizations of all size, in every sector of the economy. Full-time, long-term secure jobs for everyone is no longer the best way to get work done in today's fast-moving organizations. This new reality has created a profound shift in career management that few of us are ready for, but many have already experienced first hand.

This insightful webinar provides a practical approach to create the building blocks necessary to establish a career that will thrive in this current turbulent environment by exploring the new economics of career security. 

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Explore the forces reshaping organizations today that are resulting in this fundamental shift in how work is getting done.
  2. Discover the four components of career management - know yourself; know your marketplace; have something valuable to offer; run your career as if it were your business.
  3. Uncover the economic principles of career security necessary to thrive in this job insecure marketplace.
  4. Measure your current level of readiness for this rapidly evolving world of work. 

Who This Course is For:

  • People in the early years of their career journey.
  • People navigating their mid-career years looking forward to another decade or two of work.
  • People late in their career trying to squeeze out a few more years before winding things down.
