Executive Summary

Current models of careers have moved away from traditional, hierarchical paths to more horizontal ones. De-layering has meant fewer promotions and an alternative emphasis on skilling and cross-functional or cross-regional moves. Faced with slimmer prospects for advancement, many people have become disillusioned with careers in large organizations. Some recent research has described work and careers as moving out of these organizations altogether, into smaller, more entrepreneurial firms and into individual, consultant-type roles. Years ago, in the days before large organizations created career paths for their members, individuals were largely members of a contingent workforce, or were self-employed, self-sufficient farmers and trades people. Organizational careers were rare; individuals managed their own work. Given the shift just described, are we moving back to this kind of model? We consider past and current career models and set out a vision of future careers that differs from the past in one primary way: the existence of horizontal links that transcend geographic and organizational boundaries. As these links continue to grow, they will provide more opportunity and flexibility than were ever available under the previous systems—for those who have the knowledge and skills to take advantage of them.

Career Dimensions
There are many dimensions and layers within an organization. There are the obvious elements of an organization such as business strategies, profit margins, and product development that form an organization. One of the most important pieces of an organization is its human capital—in other words, its people. Employees make the organization. Without the employees none of the other elements in an organization can exist. Employees are not machinery or equipment that depreciates over time; they are assets to an organization that…...

Corporate Sustainability in Marketing Manager's Career

... How do you plan to incorporate 7 levels of Corporate Sustainability in your career and the 5 principles of Environmental Law 1. In my future career as Manager, I would like to work for organizations that cater to the Triple bottom Line and works not only towards profit but also towards the betterment of the Planet and the People. As such I would like to become a “responsible Manager”- who fulfils his duties not only towards the company but towards the environment and future generations by using resources responsibly, reducing the individual and organization’s ecological footprint and engage actively in Corporate Social Responsibility, not under obligatory pressure but with a sense of responsibility towards the society and environment on which it depends. As an individual, I believe that every individual has a fundamental duty and non-negotiable responsibility to be “environmentally responsible”- to try and mitigate the toll that Mother Nature is already been through in the name of Industrialisation and globalization. I strongly feel that everyone has not only a responsibility towards one’s self and one’s organization – but also towards the environment. Hence, it is important for me to choose an organization whose goals and corporate vision are aligned with this perspective. The closer the fit between my individual objectives and the organization- the higher my productivity and loyalty towards the Company. My responsibility as a responsible Marketing Manager- The......

Market Analysis The repositionable notes market is made up of paper or tabs with adhesive, which allows the product to be stuck on surfaces and moved, without leaving residue. They are also known as ‘sticky notes’ and the idea was first conceived by 3M innovators. Post-it, the original inventor of ‘sticky notes’ have seen other competitors entering the market, yet having little success in toppling Post-it as the market leader. This is especially so in Singapore, where most of the brands shy away from competing head-on with Post-it, by differentiating their products. 1.1 Market Environment 1.1.1 Technology The ease of accessing wireless networks via Wireless@SG, since its introduction in 2006, has led to a surge in consumers switching to 3G phones. The implications of this on the repositionable notes market is that gadgets like phones are increasingly being used as a substitute in place of sticky notes, in reminding people of certain events or things. Instead of physically placing a post-it on the desk, people choose to set reminders on their phones, with alarms. People also choose to send short......

I am a 15 year old boy who basically follows the pattern eat-sleep-ball-study–repeat. I know that sounded crazy, well I guess that speaks a little bit about my personality. I am the first born out of two children. Many first borns possess traits such as organization, intelligence, ambition, imagination, confidence, and most importantly responsibility. However I don’t possess most of these traits. Maybe that gives a little foreshadowing to my self-esteem, which I’ll admit isn’t quite at the top of the pack. However with the knowledge I’ve gained throughout the course I hope to change these qualities, along with other qualities that are preventing from going deep within me, and discovering more things about me. Through changing these qualities it will in turn benefit me in the future.

Careers in Accounting: Career Alternatives

...There are some who go to school and receive a degree in accounting and then ask themselves “How far can they do with this type of degree?” Well to answer the question; accounting can be the easiest road to a prosperous business career and this is because accounting has continuously been well-thought-out as the verbal and rudimentary instrument of business.

...CAREER OPPORTUNITIES IN PEACE AND CONFLICT RESOLUTION Description of the Field Peace studies is an interdisciplinary academic field that analyzes the causes of war and systemic oppression, and explores processes by which conflict and change can be managed so as to maximize justice while minimizing violence. It encompasses the study of economic, political, and social systems at the local, national, and global levels, and examines ideology, culture, and technology as they relate to conflict and change. In different settings, this field of study is known variously as "peace and conflict studies," "peace and security studies," "peace and world order studies," "justice and reconciliation studies," and so on. What distinguishes this field from others, however, is a concern with the modalities of peace and the methods of peacemaking (Michael T. Klare, Peace and World Security Studies.) Career-related activities within this field include policy research, legislative lobbying, public education, petitioning and protest action, community service, and intercultural diplomacy. Career Paths and Entry Salaries Entry level positions in the peace and conflict field are diversified and often highly competitive. Salary levels range from high teens to mid thirties at entry level depending on the size of the organizational budget, number of staff, and qualifications. The functional titles will include analyst, program associate/assistant, education coordinator, research assistant, public......

EARL SASSER HEATHER BECKHAM Thomas Green: Power, Office Politics, and a Career in Crisis Another long day at the office had drawn to a close. Thomas Green felt the pulsing in his temples that usually preceded a migraine. As he stepped outside Dynamic Displays’ corporate headquarters in Boston, the brisk air made him catch his breath. It was now February 5, 2008. Green could not believe that in five short months his dream promotion had turned into a disaster. When Green had been promoted to his new position in September, he was a rising star. Now, he would be lucky to celebrate his one-year anniversary with the company. His boss, Frank Davis, had sent the division vice president, Shannon McDonald, two scathing emails criticizing Green’s performance. Green and Davis had yet to see eye to eye on work styles or market trends. Tension had also risen when Green did not enthusiastically endorse the sales forecasts made by Davis. Green felt the forecasts were either overly optimistic or outright fabrications. Before he left for the day, Green had reread the series of emails regarding his performance and was certain that Davis was setting him up to be dismissed. Davis’s most recent email had made it clear to Green that his position as a senior market specialist was in jeopardy. He did not have much time to rectify the situation. McDonald had emailed a formal request to him that afternoon,...

...board through a one-to-one training for up to a year. The training includes workshops on corporate governance, risk management, roles of a non-executive director and assistance in capturing types of board aligned for their interest and strengths (Sealy, Doldor, & Vinnicombe, 2009). The Female FTSE Report in 2008 has named 1,800+ women at committee level across a variety of industries and these names were compiled as a very real response to the ‘lack of pipeline’ argument. However, these are just a list of names envisioned to be on the radar of search consultancies. Initiatives in database management in the UK therefore saw a major executive search consultancy announced a compilation of a database of senior female executives in the FTSE 250 companies aimed to increase the percentage of female board members on the organizations (Sealy, Doldor, & Vinnicombe, 2009). In addition, the Appointment Commission and UKRC for women in SET have been actively managing their database of potential female candidates. These organizations will match opportunities and those women on their databases. In 2004, a FTSE 100 cross-company set up a mentoring scheme aimed to provide mentoring at senior level for senior women in the FTSE 100 companies who were deemed to be potential board members (Sealy, Doldor, & Vinnicombe, 2009). In Canada, a certified mixed-sex training programme is run by the Corporate Directors aimed to prepare individual men and women for board positions.......

...Theory I. Definition of Career Concepts • Career is a series of job posisitions that people have held during their work life. Many people look back on their careers, knowing that what they might have achieved they did achieve, and that their careers, their lives and their potential went unfulfilled. • Career management is a process that enables employees to understand and develop their career skills and interest, and to use them effectively. For the time being, career management can be briefly described as ongoing process in which an individual - Gathers relevant information about himself or herself and the world of work - Develops an accurate picture of his or her talents ,interest, values, preferred lifestyle as well as alternative occupations ,jobs, and organizations - Develop realistic career goals based on this information - Develops and implements a strategy designed to achieve the goals - Obtains feedback on the effectiveness of the strategy and the relevance of the goals Moreover, individuals will need to develop a set of career competencies that enable them to develop insight into themselves and their environment so they can navigate their increasingly unpredictable and “chaotic” careers.
