The Shifting Link Between Economic Growth and Jobs | AIER | Reinvention | Scoop.it
A long-accepted law of economics is undergoing changes, as the unemployment rate has become more responsive to changes in economic output, according to a new research brief released by the American Institute for Economic Research.
Hollis Thomases's insight:
More data supporting the reinventionist thinking we all need to be taking when it comes to the future of work:  "Before 2005, when faced with a drop in demand, companies used to reduce employment by about half the size of the drop. But after 2005, it appears companies have reduced employment by 95 percent of the reduction in demand."

How Work Will Change When Most of Us Live to 100

How Work Will Change When Most of Us Live to 100 | Reinvention | Scoop.it

"It is impossible that a single shot of education, administered in childhood and early adulthood, will be able to support a sustained, 60-year career. If you factor in the projected rates of technological change, either your skills will become redundant, or your industry obsolete. That means that everyone will have at some point in their life have to make a number of major reinvestments in their skills."

Hollis Thomases's insight:
For too many middle-aged and older adults, this might sound like a frightening proposition, but actually investing in and developing whole new skill sets can be a reawakening of revived purpose and self-worth. No matter how one views it, however, it's going to be a necessary reality, not a child-like fantasy, so might as well prepare for it now!

Like many of my contemporaries these days, I’ve been undergoing a career shift.

CEOs No Longer Say ‘People Are Our Greatest Asset,’ According to New Report | Reinvention | Scoop.it
Corporate leaders often say that people are their company’s greatest asset, but a new Korn Ferry report indicates that many believe technology will add the greatest value in the future by making employees obsolete.
Hollis Thomases's insight:
New workforce pressures and the likely impact on #reinvention. Other excerpts:  "Nearly two-thirds of respondents said they “see people as a bottom-line cost, not a top-line value generator,” according to the report, while 40% said shareholders have pressured them to direct investment toward physical assets like technology."

"It’s like, ‘She’s great, she’s shit, she’s a has-been, she’s reinvented herself’—it’s stupid! I’ve always been who I am since I was born."  More salient is the fact that resilience plays a critical role in one's reinvention.

Hollis Thomases's insight:
What a great reminder for people who are mechanically inclined. I also recently heard that trade laborers of all types are in desperate supply, particularly for U.S. government-funded projects. Even the newly-trained can earn $70-$90K straight out of the gates. 

Perhaps first, second, and third career opportunities lie outside the more traditional college-bound paths of yesterday once again??
