Developing career resilience

6 Summary

This week you have learned about careers in the modern world, looked forward to possible working futures and changes in working practices, investigated the kinds of resilience that might be needed in a chosen sector and focused on an article about resilience in science.

You have added some labour market information about a sector that interests you to your toolkit or notebook and become more informed about new developments and potential change.

You now have resources that will enable you to:

  • understand the relationship between external change and the need for career resilience
  • identify recent changes in working practices
  • recognise that different types of career resilience may be required in different sectors and how this meets your preferences
  • identify possible future career trends.

Next week you will consider how internal and external factors are interrelated in developing career resilience. You will use a model of career resilience to identify your strengths and continue to refine what career resilience means for you in your occupational sector or in terms of career change.
