Global Careers Consortium Announces 6 Megatrends in the Workforce for 2021 & Beyond
The Career Thought Leaders Consortium (CTL) announced the 6 megatrends impacting careers and the workforce: emerging technology and jobs, virtual job search, remote work, diversity and bias, mental health and anxiety management, and aging in the workplace.
The 11th annual event, “Career Jam: Where Experts Forecast The New & The Next,” brings career services providers together from around the globe to learn and discuss strategies that will guide clients to achieve career success in 2021 and beyond. Experts from Australia, Singapore, Europe, and North America will provide presentations during the week of November 16–20 in a flexible virtual format. The interactive event will allow career service providers worldwide to engage with topics of interest to learn and then discuss with forward-thinking colleagues.
“The pace of change in careers and the workplace has accelerated significantly in 2020, in large part due to the global pandemic. As such, career service providers are facing new challenges in their work. Career Jam offers an opportunity for those in the careers community to come together to learn and create strategies that address these challenges and, in the long term, better serve clients to achieve their career goals,” said CTL Board Member Jan Melnik.
