Technology and guidance
Technology is having a profound impact in the way people view their careers
UKCES research has highlighted, there has been a 'quiet revolution' in technology that has changed the way people interact and a new language is developing, not only are the job titles of workers changing but so are the ways in which people work. These changes have profound implications, for the delivery and practice of careers guidance. iCeGS research has higlighted the crucial role that technology plays in both the delivery of career guidance and how individuals think about and manage their careers.
