Purposeful Portfolio Careers: Think outside the box to redefine your work life.
A portfolio careerist is someone who feels more secure generating income from a variety of sources rather than relying on one full-time job. The global economy, advancing technology and access to global talent has changed the playing field for North Americans looking for work. Portfolio careers will become the new way to thrive in our new world of work.
This workshop will examine the concept of portfolio careers; the pros and cons and the benefits of this style of work in our global economy and recession. If you are interested in designing a portfolio approach to work, this workshop will help you:
• Reinvent the concept of career direction and work life.
• Identify the advantages and disadvantages of this style of work.
• Learn how to market a portfolio career with focus and purpose.
