   JOBS AND CAREER OPTIONS

Careers have changed completely and so has career education. The times when “work” simply meant going to a workplace for a certain amount of hours a day and conducting a very specific task for the same boss, year after year… those times are now part of the history books. The frightening part of this evolution in careers is, for many people, the increasing degree of uncertainty generated upon workers.

As a consequence, life long learning is now one of the only ways to guarantee career satisfaction, security and success. The choice to continue your education whilst employment is a wise one; it means you are completely up-to-date with today’s working world and along with the experience you already have from your current and past employment, you will find yourself to be in a better professional position than most newly graduated students. The best way to deal with the multi-tasking of work and study is to seek out a course which offers flexibility and choice. For this, you will find most career education programs will advise a long distance or online course. Example is an MBA degree online program may provide both the flexibility and academic challenge to ensure you are working towards something which gives security and potential for progression in your choice of career.

The good part in this career scenario is the increasing degree of freedom and career-improving (or career change) options this new world provides for those career builders who are proactive and willing to grow. You can read a related article on this matter. Research conducted by B. Day and K. Copithorne in the book “Radical Change in the World of Work” identified current work alternatives. The categories are not mutually exclusive; activities in one of the alternatives frequently integrate with activities in other areas. The following descriptions are provided as an overview of the changing work dynamic:

Full-Time Employment

Part-Time Employment

Multi-Tracking

Job Sharing

Work Sharing / Team Models

Talent Pooling

Agent / Broker

Contracting

Self-Employment

Online Education Degrees

Teachers are in high demand; however, they must be prepared with the right education themselves. Online education degrees will help prepare you for a job in the teaching profession.
