2 Career resilience when the world of work changes
In Week 1, you looked briefly at changing workplace trends such as the loss of the job for life, and in this section, you’ll consider some others in more detail.
Some of these trends develop slowly over several years, so you might not notice them happening, particularly if you are at the beginning of your career. Your workplace’s response to others, such as changes in technology, could have a much more direct impact on your daily working life.
No matter what kind of change you experience, individuals who have a positive outlook and well-developed coping strategies are more likely to demonstrate resilience. From the perspective of career resilience – if you can find a way to embrace change in your workplace, you might even find it a positive experience.
