Promoting Employability in a "Flat" World
Parker, Polly
Journal of Employment Counseling, v45 n1 p2 Mar 2008
T. L. Friedman (2005) described a "flat" world platform where competition and collaboration take place in real time among people all over the planet. Implications exist for people to assume responsibility for managing their own careers and ensuring their own security in a global economy. This article addresses those challenges from both the individual's and the career counselor's perspectives. It proposes the "intelligent career" framework--comprising 3 "ways of knowing" and interdependencies among them--as a helpful basis for effective career development. People can use the framework to navigate their careers in order to develop new skills, develop broader reputations, and in turn sustain employability.
