Abstract

This chapter attempts to focus on the topic of career management and its growing importance for students and professionals globally mainly due to the fast pace of change requiring agility and the ability to adapt to changing pressures from the market. It attempts to first provide the current status quo at Universities and Businesses and the challenges they are facing in preparing students for work (Universities) and during work (Businesses). It also attempts to provide possible solutions that relate to making career management a real-time, continuous task to stay employable rather than a ‘one off” or ad-hoc issue. The chapter stresses the importance of certifications and professional titles as a ‘must' in a number of industries and the important role of the career counselor in staying employable and why “employability” is a never-ending process in the twenty-first century.
