Drawing on the ideas and debates discussed in this course so far, briefly compare and contrast the work or career experiences of your parents’ generation with the work or career path you expect you and your generation to experience
You may wish to consider these sub-themes in your reflection:
The status rewards of a “career” versus a “job?”
The relationship between status and pay?
The relationship between compensation and social value?
The relationship between gender and job status?
Whether/how have these relationships changed?
How do people derive fulfillment from their work?
What conditions are best for this? Whether/how these conditions have changed
