How Does Career Jam Work?

Career Jam ... celebrating its 10th anniversary ... runs in two parts.

Then, on November 22nd, 2019, you'll gather with colleagues (virtually or in-person at locations around the world) to brainstorm about how these trends are impacting  and will impact  the careers landscape. You'll network and share best practices for our work with clients in light of this new information.

Sample questions for colleague discussions:

  1. The New Retirement: The Silent Generation and Baby Boomers – who developmentally would expect to be winding down their careers – are persisting due to extended quality of life and financial requirements caused by the last recession. How are coaches guiding them to negotiate new careers with flexibility? What personal branding strategies are writers and coaches using to combat ageism? How are we adjusting our marketing and process to attract this audience and meet their needs?
  2. Diversity & Bias: In the age of #metoo and heightened focus on race, religion, and other forms of discrimination, diversity and inclusion are increasingly important in the workplace for professionals at all levels. How are we coaching clients to understand their unconscious bias? How are we guiding them to communicate their skills in managing diversity? What techniques are aiding them to avoid bias throughout the hiring process? How is recruiting evolving to minimize bias throughout the process?
  3. Generation Z: The next generation (born between 1995 and 2010) is entering the workforce. They bring a new outlook and expectations about the workplace shaped by technology and growing up as digital natives in the Great Recession. How are coaches and resume writers changing service offerings and delivery methods to meet their needs? What resume, social branding, and other career communication strategies are we using to help them compete in a crowded market?
  4. Artificial Intelligence (AI): AI is infiltrating the hiring process, affecting HR management practices, and automating jobs across the globe. How will job search, personal branding, and career marketing adjust as technology advances? How will recruiting and hiring change? How do we account for the rise of technology in career advising and management?
  5. Remote Work: As technology and globalization become commonplace in most industries, remote work has grown exponentially across industries and geographies. How are we guiding clients in finding and marketing themselves for remote work? How is recruiting evolving to better fill these positions? How are we coaching clients to maintain visibility and manage their digital brands to overcome salary gaps faced by remote workers and to advance their careers?
  6. Positive Psychology & Wellbeing: Companies are witnessing the cost of burnout and the conversation has turned to meditation, unplugging, and resilience. What coaching strategies are we using to help professionals avoid burnout and build their resilience? How are HR and other internal champions shifting corporations to prioritize wellbeing? How are we using the concepts of positive psychology to improve clients' ability to manage increasing uncertainty in their careers? 
  7. Emotional Intelligence: As technology threatens to replace jobs, emotional intelligence (EI) has taken center stage as a differentiator and key skill for career longevity. What tools are we using to operationalize EI concepts for clients? What coaching strategies are effective in improving emotional intelligence? How is recruiting evolving to screen for emotional intelligence? How are we demonstrating a client's emotional intelligence in their career communications and throughout job search?
