As many scholars have noted, we are now entering the Second Machine Age, which is characterized by radical transformations in the world of work. The presentation will review new strategies that career coaches and counselors can use to help clients prepare for a world wherein flexibility, adaptability, resilience, and creativity will be the hallmarks of successful transitions to decent and dignified work. The presentation will be followed by a conversation among the participants about the complex challenges posed by a future of constricting opportunities for a meaningful work life.
