Antoine Roussety, Carving Your Place in the Job Market

The concept of the ideal career path has changed drastically in the last generation. Previously, individuals dreamed of completing their undergraduate education, accepting an entry level position, working their way up the corporate ladder, and retiring before the age of seventy. While many still doggedly pursue this “American Dream”, the fact is that the modern job market is so different from that of previous generations that the idea of staying with one company for your entire career just does not make sense anymore. In fact, a recent Pew study found that the average individual in today's’ job market will change careers roughly six times in their life. That is not a change in jobs. That is a complete change in careers spanning various industries, geographic locations, and responsibilities. In such a volatile market, it’s no wonder that many people are struggling to keep their head above water and find adequate employment. If we are to take advantage of the modern job market, we must first understand its inner machinations and use this understanding to our advantage.
Dr. Maurice Antoine Roussety (on Vimeo) has spent decades studying the job market. He has an undergraduate degree in Economics and Accounting from Monash University, a Masters of Business Administration and Masters of Leadership from the University of New England in New South Wales, as well as a Ph.D. in Intellectual Property and Franchise Business Valuation from Griffith University in Queensland. This academic background has given him a large-scale picture of the global job market. At the same time, he is an accomplished professional in his own right. He is an expert in finance and marketing and has been consulting with businesses for more than a decade. This work has also given him a deep insight into the minutia of the economy and how they work together.

Balancing a large-scale picture of the global economy with detailed insights from specific businesses, Dr. Maurice Roussety has come to a number of conclusions. The first is that the typical “American Dream” style career is dead. Rather, individuals are now expected to carve out a place in the economy where they can make their livelihood. We must be better at marketing ourselves and we must also take advantage of every opportunity that is presented to us. Modern professionals are expected to have a much more diverse range of skills than ever before and there is no guarantee that their responsibilities and role within a company will remain constant throughout their career.

For Dr. Maurice Roussety (on CrowdRise) this is not a daunting prospect. Rather, the modern job market is quick to respond to individuals with new skills and aspirations for their professional careers.
