Career Design Lab
The career is dead, long live the career!
As predictable career tracks are disappearing, we need to rethink our approach to career planning. The future of work is made of frequent transitions and calls for continuous adaptation and learning.
Career design is a learning-focused and purpose-driven approach to careers. It is a mindset that emphasizes curiosity, experimentation and collaboration.
It is also a research-based set of creative tools to help you design and redesign your path at every twist and turn.
Let’s co-create meaningful and sustainable careers!
Feel the Future!
Feel the Future is our university community’s future-oriented strive to help you better understand the current developments, emerging trends and weak signals of the future of working, living and learning – and what is in it for you.
Future of Work online courses
Amid constant change, life-wide learning is a mindset that enables you to navigate through the future of work. Aalto University's Future of Work online course platform offers courses to help prepare for your future career.
