Thinking About Work
What Information do I need to know about the World of Work?
The “World of Work” is a term we are using to talk about the diverse, broad expanse of vocational opportunities that exist. “Work” in this context can mean lots of things:
- Working full time
- Working part-time
- Working short-term, flexible “gigs”
- Day work
- Transitional employment
- Meaningful activities that bring purpose and meaning to your life.
Information about the world of work is the knowledge you may need to decide if work is for you. People often need SOME information about the kinds of work that exist. They may need information about what tasks different jobs need and even what different work environments might look like. (Different workplaces may have different workplace “cultures”)
