Career Talks!

BI offers a nice playlist from TED that targets issues facing folks who need to think about career. This is all good stuff. But there is something more basic going on in the 21st century that will affect career planning.

What is it? In the 21st century, we will see traditional career paths lose their predominance. We will still need medical services, for example, but we will not get them from people we traditionally called doctors. So going into medicine aint what it used to be. Ditto for law, and perhaps even more so.

For this reason, strategic thinking about career places new demands on young folks. Those demands are to focus on the path itself — the way you connect creatively rather than just learning info.
