SPEAKER: Catherine Voss Plaxton, Director of the San Jose State University Career Center
TOPIC: The Robots Are Coming: Grab Your Purpose and Run!
(Back by popular demand! Presented at the Fall 2016 CCDA Conference.)
Future developments in disruptive technology, economic globalization, and the movement toward mass higher education promise to destabilize work, the definition of career, and ultimately how individuals find purpose in life. During this session, we will explore the predictions around these trends and the implications for career development. How can a career counselor effectively guide clients when trait-matching strategies seem too narrow to account for these rapidly evolving dynamics? What client behaviors should career counselors foster to enable their clients to respond effectively to disruptive changes in work? The session will conclude with an examination of the concepts and potential applications of the Chaos Theory of Careers, a theory that draws from ideas in both science and spirituality and was developed to guide preparation for careers in an environment of unpredictability.
