Nowadays the working environment is changing rapidly. Working conditions today are not the same as before and people no longer rely on taking one job for life. Discuss the possible causes of these changes and give your suggestions on how people should prepare for work in the future.
In todays society, holding one job for the whole life has become a thing of the past. Willingly or unwillingly, an increasing number of people no longer hold one job till they die. This essay aims to analyze the causes of this change and provides suggestions on how we can adapt to this trend.
There are two major causes of this trend. To begin with, the rapid upgrade of science and technology renders skills at work outdated quickly, which makes those with new and advanced skills always in demand while those who fail to possess these skills highly likely to be fired. Taking the cellphone industry as an example, if employees still languish at those techniques used in the bar phone, then, when the touch-screen mobile phone comes into fashion, chances are that these employees will be replaced by those who have already mastered this technology. Moreover, with more information available today, job-hopping becomes easier. Therefore, people can change their jobs more frequently once they find they are not interested in their work or simply are fed up with their work routines.
Faced with this changing world, we have no choice but to adapt to these changes by keeping learning new knowledge. It is the only way to maintain our value for the company and make us irreplaceable. At the same time, we should also change our mindset, keep a low profile and work down to earth. We need to realize that even though we may hold the post for a longer period of time than many newbies, we still need to learn from them to upgrade our skills.
A rapid changing working environment gives us many opportunities but also many challenges. The key to survive and thrive in this environment is to adapt to the change by continuously upgrading and improving our knowledge and skills.
