Abstract

Careers have changed. We know that. People at all levels want to have careers that are meaningful to them, match their needs, address their wants, and enable them to pursue and meet their goals. While that statement seems consistent with what careers have meant to people for years, the environments in which these careers happen has changed. Organization structures have shifted.

It's about including a rich mix of experiences in the plan. It's about building and experiencing career patterns versus following
