Guiding to Career Development for the Millenial.
In this workshop, I am talking about the changing of career development paradigm from linear to protean (non-linear) career development in recent years. In addition, I am introducing the purpose-driven career development for the Millenial.
(Sat. 2:30PM ~ 4:30PM @ Dining Hall 2)
Sponsored by: WKU Career Center, Career Development Student Organization
Traditionally, the vocational career follows a linear way of change. But recent career development is highly dynamic and non-linear. We call this recent career change as "Protean career development".
Especially, the Millenial has a unique desire for career development. The Millenials are looking for 'contingent but equifinal purpose' achievement through their professional career.
The Young expect that they will have multiple jobs (in average > 7 jobs) throughout life-span. However, the profession does not necessarily change over vocation. For example, a business major student can define their profession as "a business problem solver who addresses managing money (Capital) and managing people (Labor)". Defining a profession, rather than a job, thus, important for the young to develop their own protean career.
I personally propose the young to think about "What actions are you taking now to achieve the purpose?" because only the current actions build the future career.
To manage the current action, I suggest the young to use the "Energy planner" that may help organize and align their current actions to achieve the purpose (mission).
