Welcome to careerlabs.net - the official learning site of Education & Careers Specialist, Ambrose Kibuuka S. Mukiibi
Everyone who engages with this site literary opens up a personal laboratory in which they will continuously re-imagine and innovate their career. In this sense, the site is a hub of career laboratories - Career Labs.
A fresh approach to careers is needed if one is to survive and thrive in the labour market of this era, the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR). More so, COVID-19 has shaken the whole world and changed everything in the career world. Things will never be the same. Unemployment and severe underemployment will increasingly bite even highly qualified professionals. The more consumers get into the habit of demanding for personalized products and services, the faster will be the trend of personalized careers. This de-massification of careers means that professionals will become less and less hired on the basis of qualifications in a specific standard discipline, but rather on the basis of a personalized combination of knowledge-sets and skill-sets. Unfortunately, current educational qualifications are based on an expired paradigm of the 2nd and 3rd Industrial Revolutions. In the previous era, the more standardized your qualifications were, the higher your success prospects. In the 4IR, the more differentiated (unique) your competencies are, the higher your competitive advantage - literally, competition becomes irrelevant for you. Careerlabs.net is here to help you build a highly personalized and successful career. Let’s show you how to create a High-Value Unique Selling Point (HV-USP).
