In this age or rapid disruption driven by technology and globalization, jobs and entire career tracks are created and destroyed in front of our eyes. Today's careers are episodic- they don't happen on a smooth path, but move through many phases. No job is perfect forever, and we have to be prepared to adapt and move on, perhaps multiple times, unlike our parents and grandparents who may have stayed in one company all their lives.
Friday we were joined by author, Farai Chideya. We discussed changing careers, growing in your current position and the retirement dilemma.
Farai Chideya has combined media, technology, and socio-political analysis during her twenty-five-year career as an award-winning author, journalist, professor, and lecturer. She is a Distinguished Writer in Residence at New York University’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute and a senior writer for the data, politics, and sports site FiveThirtyEight.com. She was also a spring 2012 fellow at Harvard’s Institute of Politics. She frequently appears on public radio and cable television, speaking about race, politics, and culture.
