The Portfolio Career

The world of work is changing very quickly - much more rapidly than most adults from the conventional world of the professions and nine to five jobs realize. The traditional concept of a 'career' is disappearing and many representatives of the present and future student generations are more than likely to change direction several times during their working lives. The idea of a portfolio career - not relying on one single area of work or skill to generate income - is growing in popularity: especially when employees no longer feel they can rely on a company to provide them with the security that used to be seen as an employer's duty to the workforce. Changes in companies' policies which lead to redundancies or redeployment of resources mean that people are becoming used to the idea of additional training or re-training in order to fill another position within the organization or to find work elsewhere. This will become quite normal and the people who will fare best in an unstable job market are those who learn to be flexible and who develop a range of skills, knowledge and experience.
