Abstract

Most of us follow a career path mapped out by our earlier education and a combination of variables such as parents’ jobs, our personality, location and socio-economic grouping. But the ‘job for life’ of a generation or so ago rarely exists anymore. Opportunity is now considerable and the availability of training, development and education offers us a choice like never before. Not only will we change jobs several times in our lives, but it’s quite likely we will also change careers and where we live.
