Joblessness is a global problem today. Businesses aren't creating enough jobs, and the ones that exist cannot be filled due to a mismatch in the skills demanded versus those possessed by the applicants. This book is a practical and unique guide full of wisdom that caters to professionals and jobseekers of all backgrounds. It will equip readers to adapt themselves to the changing times and meet career-related challenges posed by:
2. Outsourcing and automation
3. Outdated skills
4. Being too expensive for employers, and
5. Negative image perception (due to age, experience, qualifications, etc.)
The term ‘Vucareer’ is a neologism derived from the conjugation of the acronym VUCA and career. VUCA stands for Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous—an acronym often used to describe the world we live in. The term VUCA originated with the United States Army War College to describe conditions resulting from the Cold War. The acronym has since been used by businesses across industries and management education experts to advise leadership and management, particularly in the context of globalisation and technological disruption.
The author has distilled his immense experience into an easy-to-read, no-nonsense account of concrete insights and actionable strategies to provide the reader a toolkit that can be used to enhance longevity and material value of a career in today’s context.
Whether you are looking to start, reinvent, or further your career, make Vucareer an absolute essential read to be future-ready.
