Marie Zimenoff, CEO, Career Thought Leaders

Career Thought Leaders releases 10th annual career industry trends white paper under the leadership of CEO Marie Zimenoff.

“Career Jam challenges practitioners to look to the future and revolutionize their approach as career advancement becomes more complex in the new global economy.”

How are career advancement, leadership, and job search changing? What do professionals need to know to increase the longevity and success of their careers?

Career Thought Leaders Consortium (CTL) answers these questions and more in an annual white paper that reports trends in the careers industry. Based on insights gathered from industry professionals in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Spain, the U.K., and the U.S., these trends are critical information for career practitioners – career coaches and counselors, resume writers, college career services staff, personal branding strategists, and government/nonprofit service providers – who guide clients in career management, leadership development, and job search.

This year, experts discussed how seven megatrends are changing the careers landscape, including:

  • Older workers persisting in the workforce,
  • Diversity conversations heating up within organizations,
  • Generation Z entering the workplace,
  • Artificial intelligence and other technologies changing the workplace and job search,
  • Remote work expanding as a common practice in many industries globally,
  • Positive psychology and wellbeing becoming commonplace in corporate and coaching conversations, and
  • Emotional intelligence growing in importance for hiring and succession planning decisions.

The insights into the latest trends originate annually from the Career Thought Leaders event entitled Career Jam: Where Experts Forecast The New & The Next. Career Jam participants include a diverse group of professionals who work on the front lines of the employment industry. Their insights – based on daily interactions with job seekers and hiring authorities worldwide – reveal dynamic changes in the way we work today, and the way we’ll work tomorrow.

Marie Zimenoff, CEO of Career Thought Leaders (CTL), has evolved the event in recent years to focus on the impact global trends have on the careers industry and was among the career professionals who brainstormed the ideas, trends, and best practices shared in the report. “CTL convenes career professionals to keep them abreast of trends and best practices in the dynamic careers industry,” said Zimenoff. “Career Jam challenges practitioners to look to the future and revolutionize their approach as career advancement becomes more complex in the new global economy.”
