Dr. Maurice Roussety, What is the Ideal Career?
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 todays’ 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) is not only an academic expert on finance and marketing, he is also an accomplished entrepreneur in his own right. He holds an undergraduate degree from Monash University in Economics. 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. In addition, Dr. Roussety has worked as a consultant with a number of businesses, helping them to understand the modern market and anticipate where their company could potentially be in the future.
Therefore, with such a saturated start up market, new business prospects have come to dominate the global economy, specifically franchising. Although franchising is not a new concept, it has found new ground in our post digital era economy because the concept allows newly established franchising to piggyback off the goodwill of their parent company. This goodwill, or reputation, is invaluable for new businesses that do not have the time, money, or resources to establish a client base quickly.
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.
