Abstract

An area of concern and interest for most working in projects is one’s own career. It may be as simple as looking for the next consulting contract in the Gig Econo-my or planning the next 5-10 years of one’s career to accommodate external considerations such as marriage or retirement. Those project participants that take a sustainable approach to career management may enjoy better outcomes. We look at the sustainable project-oriented career concept and propose key error messages that signal risks to one’s career such as the absence of substantial train-ing or education within the past 10 years. We examine the sustainable project-oriented career framework within the Gig Economy environment including the need for periodic renewal through education and training. We review some of the innovations in education and training that project participants can leverage to improve career sustainability. The paper and presentation combine just enough theory with practical advice to develop sustainable project-oriented careers and to thrive in the Gig Economy.
