ladder squiggly

The conventional path our careers follow is a linear ladder climb with a focus to reach the top. But this isn't the new normal anymore as more often than before people are jumping between roles, industies and locations. Moreover in a fast changing world our skills need to be varied too(World Economic Forum has researched that 50% of the skills we have today will be irrelevent by 2025), so would you rather have a squiggly career - uncertain but with lots of possibilies OR a ladder career - limited in both learning and opportunity. Listen to this interesting talk by two career developement consultants and cofounders of Amazing If - Sarah Ellis and Helen Tupper.
