Career growth has been a common quest for every generation. There are new sectors such as start-ups, design, digital transformations in finance, health, education, manufacturing, and so on. With increasing options, access to information, and technological changes, the current generation of students faces this more frequently than ever. Here are some of the career trends:
- Entrepreneurial mindset: Employers are increasingly looking for employees who are self-driven. The best employees align with the company’s objectives, find new tasks, and work with teams to achieve. Those who work as if it is their own company are more likely to succeed than those who wait to be given a task list.
- Interdisciplinary talent: Graduates who demonstrate an understanding of varied domains are appreciated more than those who are narrowly focused.
- Creative potential: In a world changing so fast, successful companies are always creating new value for their customers. Employees who have creative potential are far more valuable than those who stick to the routine.
- People skills: It is often repeated, and rightly so, that beyond a point, a person grows or stagnates based on how well one can work with others.
- Learning to learn: Once we stop learning, we are replaced by other humans or machines. The mindset of learning is key to succeed in the 21st century.
