My last several clients happened to be IT professionals. I'm starting to think that this is not a coincidence, but a signal that IT professionals need to cope with much more uncertainty and with much more agility than most other fields.
As it is, carers today are so much more uncertain and shifting, with everyone likely to make 2-3 career changes during their lives - at least!
The IT world requires even more rapid-cycle nearly constant career transitioning. The pace of innovation and client expectation is super-fast. I'd love to hear from those of you who are in the IT world or who live with someone who is. What have you noticed? What career navigation skills do you think are critical to success as a technologist?
I'd also LOVE to have a few guest bloggers on this topic. Let me know if you're interested!
