Career, identity, and self

NICEC invites you to explore the ways in which boundaries are changing and what the implications might be for theory, practice and policy-making in career development in a world where once taken-for-granted assumptions are being challenged.

How do we reinvent careers for the 21st Century? The volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world - and more specifically the anticipation of the changing post-Brexit landscape in April 2019 - brings into sharp focus the way that previously unplanned events can alter our view of ourselves, our identity, and our career development. As the UK and Europe enter a period of transition we are reminded how many types of transition are navigated through career development: education and work; the spatial and geographical; youth and aging; conceptions of gender; socio-cultural shifts; etc.
