Issue 383 | January 20, 2022

“We learn who we are in practice, not in theory.” – David Epstein, author of Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World

If you want to keep up on the latest in the careers industry, here is our annual must-read resource – the 2022 Career Trends White Paper.

This year, experts discussed how five megatrends are changing the careers landscape, including:

  • Artificial intelligence, population growth, and technology-aided career development,

  • Broader definitions of diversity and increased focus on equality in hiring,

  • Technology tools specific to hiring and job search,

  • Shift in worker attitudes leading to record numbers of resignations and a surge in gig work, and

  • Demands on leaders to build inclusive organizations and lead with empathy.

The insights into the latest trends originate annually from the Career Thought Leaders event entitled Career Jam: Where Experts Forecast The New & The Next.

What stands out to you? What trends are you seeing in your work?
