@PamSlim “The new world of work is built on three ideas: the first is that the economy and jobs are not ever going to be totally stable again, no matter how much we long for it. Uncertainty, change and market fluctuations are part of our new reality. The second is that due to the Internet, we now have so many new ways to work, which will give us increased flexibility and more opportunities. The third idea about the new world of work is that by force or by choice, people will end up working in a lot more different configurations, like employee, freelancer, business owner, and non-profit professional.
Our opportunity is to develop a new skill set, and approach to our work, that will keep us fully engaged and employed for our whole professional career. We need to develop flexibility, and a cohesive story about how all of our work ties together. And we need a much broader personal network, who will help us to get a job, or get customers. The good news is that all the tools are at our fingertips, we just need to learn how to use them.”
