Nearly all of the 10 million jobs created in the last decade were not traditional 9-5 jobs, according to research published in 2016 by Professors Lawrence Katz (Harvard University) and Alan Krueger (Princeton University). Employment in the so-called “Gig Economy” is growing much faster than traditional payroll employment (Brookings Institute, 2017) and is expected to reach 40% of the workforce by 2020. This has big implications for the work we do as career counselors and coaches.
In this seminar, participants will explore the changing nature of work and careers, with its more entrepreneurial focus, to better guide our clients.
