Is Your Career Ready For The Future?
There's a unique type of existential anxiety brewing in younger professionals lately who consider their career future and wonder, “Are robots coming for my job?” This is not a meritless concern: What some have termed “the fourth industrial revolution” is grinding to life as we speak. You just have to drive past the dark empty shell of another former big box store to see for yourself that radically new ways of doing business are already upon us.
Ask any career coach: The quest of career development is already challenging. Getting clear about who you are and what you want professionally (and then how to actually attain your ideal job) is a journey of growth for many people. But, if you're wisely thinking about your career future and what the reality of the job market will be ten years from now, it adds a layer of complexity and worry to an already uncertain time.
It can feel paralyzing to choose a career and invest in your professional development when you're riddled with worry about your career future, and whether your chosen profession will still be relevant when our economy is changing so quickly.
Release Anxiety About Your Career Future
Good news: You don't need to be anxious about your career future. In fact, by understanding a few principles for staying energized, fresh, and in-step with the emerging economy, you can be assured that the world will always value what you have to offer. Furthermore, there are some specific mindsets that can help you release anxiety about your career future, so that you can feel confident, clear, and move forward fearlessly.
