The manifesto Carol shared asks us to purposefully look at our careers not from the perspective of a defined path, but from that of broad possibilities. This got me to thinking of the idealized career path of a prior generation.
The old goal, find a steady job with a steady firm has fallen by the wayside. The treadmill of change was stuck in neutral for a while, but it’s back on and picking up speed these days. Very few of us will have long-term careers with a single company now. This brings us to what I see as today’s career path.
