This career planning workshop uses the AIChE Career Discovery™ approach as part of the AIChE Institute for Learning and Innovation.

Presented by a PhD Chemical engineer and corporate veteran who changed jobs 10 times over 30 years. Changing jobs over the course of a career used to be a choice of the few 30 years ago. Increasingly, changing jobs over the course of a career is a necessity by the many. According to a LinkedIn study, people who graduated between 2006 and 2010 averaged 2.85 jobs in the five years after graduation, compared to 1.6 for people who graduated between 1986 and 2000. Further, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that the average employee will work at nearly nine different jobs over the course of their career. This career planning workshop uses a Five Futures Career Discovery approach proven effective in both industrial and academic settings.
