Rethink the Future
The beliefs of career has changed. I grew up thinking get a good job and retire after 30 years. Becoming Generation Flux gave me the information to change my beliefs and set aside them. I can now move ahead with new expectations of how I am to interact with the human resources personnel and hopefully get a job.
I highly recommend, " Becoming Generation Flux." It's a very comprehensive yet concise audiobook on career planning. There are many insights on the data on unemployment and labor trends. I appreciated how the author also gives historical context so that his readers can better understand the influxes of the job market. For example, he explains how machines have dramatically changed the era that we live in and resulted in the decline of white collar jobs. The author mentioned people in my generation (90s kids) and how we are more at risk to lie with our parents. This resonated highly with me. However, I feel better prepared and wiser in my career. This audiobook has definitely given me some useful tips and methods.
