Navigating the Current Landscape: Admin and Office Support Recruitment in Today’s Climate
27th November 2023
This is the one piece of career advice, I gave to my 13-year-old daughter……………………
“Don’t worry about a career, follow your interests, learn more about who you are, what you like, and what you are good at.”
If she doesn’t focus on a proper career until she is 30 that’s fine with me. Not to say that I’ll be supporting her financially until then! 😮
Now this isn’t as glib as it sounds and is backed up by a book, I read a while ago:
📘 “The 100-Year Life” by Lynda Gratton
This talks about preparing for a future where living beyond 100 is the new norm. In a nutshell, it’s all about how our lives and careers will look very different in the future. I highly recommend it.
Gratton talks about how multiple careers over a lifetime will become the norm.
Key to deciding which career paths to follow and when are ‘crucible experiences’✨.
These are episodes in life when you encounter the lives of others. These crucible experiences take many forms, from simply living in another city to spending time in a completely different environment from the norm.
I will encourage Maisie to experience as many of these as possible, to travel, to live her life, and not to decide on a set career path whilst still very young.
As we prepare the next generation to navigate this 100-year life, my advice is simple: encourage them to embrace change, foster a love for lifelong learning, and prioritise their financial well-being. The future holds boundless possibilities, and with the right mindset, they can make every year count.
Let’s start the conversation on how we can equip our kids with the tools they need for a successful and fulfilling journey into the 100-year life. 🚀
