Back in the day, you made one definitive career choice in your early twenties and then stuck by it, trying to climb that steep career ladder. But those days are over. Now, careers are long and winding paths, filled with both setbacks and opportunities, where people switch jobs and employers like there’s no tomorrow. 

But how do you get a grip on a career like that? How do you deal with all those changes? And how can we, as professionals, advise people on how to keep growing and stay employable, and how to be happy?
