The last few years have proven to be especially challenging (to put it kindly). The employment landscape and job-search process have seen huge changes. It's tough to keep up – even for me – and the Human Resources / Career Development arena is my area of expertise and my passion.
It isn't a surprise that I feel my clients' frustration with this warp speed change. Employees feel overworked, under appreciated and barely able to keep up. Job seekers feel confused, depleted and indistinct. More than anything, the people I work with want to get a better handle on adapting to the changing landscape and effectively and strategically managing their careers.
To do that, it's key to be comfortable with both career development AND change. In recognition of many requests for help in this area, I've been plotting some new things for 2011. A new year is around the corner and so are some new tools and services from Tandem.
I hope your year is coming to a close with loads of joy and peace. Whatever the case, the opportunity for a fresh start is fast approaching. Let's make 2011 a fantastic year. Stay tuned.
