Yesterday’s jobs don’t exist, today’s jobs won’t exist in a few years and tomorrow’s careers haven’t even been created yet.
Irving, TX (PRWEB) February 14, 2013
The new, eye-opening book, The New World of Work: From the Cube to the Cloud, describes the transformation of work platforms and talent-sourcing that is revolutionizing not just how and where work is performed, but the way business is being done.
Co-authors, Terri Maxwell, CEO of Succeed on Purpose and Tim Houlne, CEO of Working Solutions, emphasize the need for a new methodology for career planning in The New World of Work. Technology enablement is continuously reshaping what work can be performed virtually. As more virtual work platforms emerge, traditional functions will ultimately move to the cloud.
The New World of Work: From the Cube to the Cloud details the role of cloud-based computing in disintegrating the boundaries of work, simultaneously blurring career lines. Companies now need professionals that are both specialized and have a wide range of expertise. They need operationally minded marketers and sales-driven engineers. As the corporate walls implode, so do the boundaries of careers.
“Yesterday’s jobs don’t exist, today’s jobs won’t exist in a few years and tomorrow’s careers haven’t even been created yet,” Maxwell said. “For example, should customer service be a department; or should it be embedded in every fiber of the corporate structure as Zappos does?”
The authors have donated books to their alma mater, University of Texas at Dallas (UTD), to allow a fifty percent discount through February 22, 2013, at the UTD Bookstore. View a video book trailer for The New World of Work: From the Cube to the Cloud here.
