Change is an inevitable part of modern working life. From globalisation to the rise of new technology, a number of different forces now impact on our career development. Career adaptability involves having the skills and abilities needed to successfully shape and adjust to this ever changing professional environment, so that you can have the career and future you want.
Research has identified 4 key competencies which make up career adaptability:
An interest in the future helps you to look ahead and prepare for what might come next
Taking responsibility for your career development enables you to influence and shape it
Imagining and exploring different potential scenarios opens up new possibilities
Having belief in your capacity to pursue and achieve your goals
Each of us has different strengths and our own unique blend of these 4 attributes. There’ll be some areas where we already feel very comfortable. By developing your career adaptability, you can learn to use each competency effectively, so that you can have the career and future you want.
