Recalculating: Navigate Your Career Through the Changing World of Work
COVID-19 has heightened career uncertainty in a work landscape dominated by turbulence and change, and it is directly impacting how people are entering—or reentering—the workplace. But as New York Times bestselling author and career and workplace expert Lindsey Pollak makes clear, the pandemic merely accelerated career and hiring trends that have been building. Her fourth book, Recalculating: Navigate Your Career Through the Changing World of Work, is a direct response to the COVID-19 crisis: an inspirational, practical, and forward-looking career playbook for recent grads, career changers, and transitioning professionals looking to thrive in today’s rapidly evolving workplace.
The old job-hunting and career success rules no longer apply. Job seekers of all generations and skill sets must learn how to adapt to this “new normal,” which includes: 1) a hybrid of remote and in-person experiences; 2) increased reliance on virtual communication and automation; 3) constant disruption; 4) renewed employer emphasis on diversity, equity and inclusion; and 5) expansion of the “gig” economy and alternative employment options.
Ms. Pollak is a New York Times bestselling author and one of the world’s leading career and workplace experts. She was named to the 2020 Thinkers50 Radar List, which honors the top global management thinkers whose work is shaping the future of how organizations are managed and led. Ms. Pollak’s other books include The Remix: How to Lead and Succeed in the Multigenerational Workplace; Becoming the Boss: New Rules for the Next Generation of Leaders; and Getting from College to Career: Your Essential Guide to Succeeding in the Real World. Her speaking audiences and consulting clients have included more than 250 corporations, law firms, conferences and universities. Her advice and opinions have appeared in such media outlets as The TODAY Show, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, CNN and NPR.
Ms. Pollak will be interviewed by Mary Simon, director of career advising and education in the Career Management Center at the Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University. Ms. Simon is responsible for managing a team of nine career coaches to prepare and support over 1,300 full-time MBA students pursuing a variety of business pathways.
This event suitable for youth 12+. It will be recorded and available later on our website and YouTube channel.
