The new career paradigm is characterized by ‘protean’ and ‘boundary less’ outlooks. A protean career attitude implies individuals taking responsibility of their careers and achieving fulfillment in it; while a boundary less career attitude is characterized by a high mobility of individuals across organizations, industries and countries.
These changes are visible in many ways; individuals are becoming lifelong learners, the concept of ‘gig economy’ is thriving and the traditional “three phase” career model of ‘learn, work and retire’ is being replacedby a more agile “multi phase” model of ‘learn, work, leisure, learn, work , leisure’ ..... learn!!
The tools are based on the O*NET framework which is the largest open source career database in the world. The O*NET framework and career taxonomy is very comprehensive and although build in the USA, can be linked to career standards worldwide.
The founding team at Tucareers have been working on researching and validating the usefulness of O*NET’s data in an international context since 2012. Their research validating O*NET’s use in India was published in the journal from the International Association of Educational and Vocational Guidance, the nodal body for counselling globally.
Our phased career model (ONETCPTM) provides for a culturally independent framework with required checks and balances for use across cultures.
Our secret sauce is a good understanding of the traditional psychometric and career decision tools and being able to wed it with the advancements in technology (machine learning and AI) to provide a decision framework that can be scalable and most importantly durable in a fast evolving new career paradigm.
The O*NET framework is an unparalleled resource and its utility in the new career paradigm is increasingly being understood across the globe. Our strength and unique value proposition is the in-depth understanding of that framework and its application across the spectrum of career planning and development.
