PLANNING A CAREER FOR THE NEW ECONOMY
In the last few decades, the world of work has dramatically changed how people earn their
living and plan their work lives. This new labour market is evolving at accelerating speed as old
industrial-age jobs are replaced by knowledge-based work and information technology continues
to alter how we work, play and learn. This dramatic change in how goods and services are
produced and distributed has been labelled the “New Economy.” The old economy was based on
resources; the New Economy is based on knowledge and is driven by technology and information.
Working in new ways: In this New Economy, new forms of work are being created, as
employment in a “job-for-life” is replaced by a variety of “work alternatives.” These work
alternatives can include working part time, contracting, consulting or owning a business where
you hire your own employees.
In British Columbia, more and more people are working in this way, and economists are
predicting that this trend will continue in the future. Career counsellors are encouraging people to
prepare for these work alternatives rather than for just a full-time job.
New thinking for a new millennium: The New Economy demands that we change our
thinking about the labour market. Traditional job patterns that we took for granted for most of the
last century have disappeared. Letting go of the way things used to be in the world of work is one
of the hardest challenges that career planners face today. Here are some trends that all workers
will have to adapt to:
Change: Rapid change will be constant in the workplace of the new millennium. Those who
understand change and can manage it effectively will be more successful.
Just-in-time training: In the information economy, it is impossible to learn everything you
need to know ahead of time to do a job. Rapid learning will be commonplace. The advantage will go
to those who can learn – and instruct – the fastest. Workers must commit to continuous learning
throughout their life/ work.
Fusion: Job classifications and occupational titles will become less important. The jobs of
the future will be hyphenated; in other words, there will be a fusion of titles like carpenter© Đỗ Bình – THPT Liễn Sơn, Lập Thạch, Vĩnh Phúc – www.violet.vn/quocbinh72 Trang 2/5


architect, accountant-sales rep, or graphic designer-webmaster. Being able to combine a variety of
skills to apply to a particular task will be increasingly important.
Self-reliance: Work is becoming more “entrepreneurial” in the sense that workers have to
be prepared for a variety of work alternatives and take the initiative to market their skills more
creatively. As a result, people will need to be more responsible for their own career development.
The notion of “career self-management” is emerging as a means not only of surviving in the New
Economy, but also of thriving and making the best of its new opportunities.
Emphasis on skills: Workers can no longer expect long-term job security, but they can rely
on “skills security”. If workers keep their skills up-to-date and market them effectively in areas of
the economy that are growing, they will be able to find work. An essential ingredient of career selfmanagement is knowing and developing skill sets and then finding areas of work where they can
be applied.
Balance in life/ work: Information technology is fuelling the accelerating pace of change.
We are “plugged in” to work more than ever before through communications (e-mail, phone, fax,
pagers, the Internet). To maintain their health and well-being, workers will have to rethink how
and where they work and find balance between earning a living and living their lives.
Finding opportunity: In this New Economy, it is beneficial for people to use their creativity
to find new opportunities where they can apply their skills and abilities. This means keeping an
open mind about where and how you work.
The New Economy is very different from the old. It offers even more opportunities to
find challenging, rewarding and satisfying work. If you spend time and energy planning for this
new reality, you will be able to create a career plan that offers excitement, anticipation and
hope for the future.

A. It is harder to find a good job in the New Economy.
B. The New Economy may see the increase in the number of the businessmen.
C. The New Economy offers more courses on improving the life and work skills.
D. Technology and information is considered the basis for the development of the New
Economy.
Question 29. What can be inferred from the passage about the future workers?
A. They can combine some jobs at the same time to earn a good living.
B. They may keep their mind open to welcome the new trends.
C. They have to plan and manage their career better.
D. They can get the job excitement more easily in the New Economy.
Question 30. The main difference between the New Economy and the old one is___________.
A. opportunities offered
B. high living standard C. skill security D. careers chosen

The most desert animals will drink water if confronted with it, for many of them the
opportunity never comes. Yet all living things must have water, or they will expire. The herbivores
find it in desert plants. The carnivores slake their thirst with the flesh and blood of living prey. One
of the most remarkable adjustments, however, has been made by the tiny kangaroo rat, who not
only lives without drinking but subsists on a diet of dry seeds containing about 5% free water. Like
other animals, he has the ability to manufacture water in his body by a metabolic conversion of
carbohydrates. But he is notable for the parsimony with which he conserves his small supply by
every possible means, expending only minuscule amounts in his excreta and through evaporation
from his respiratory tract.
Investigation into how the kangaroo rat can live without drinking water has involved
various experiments with these small animals. Could kangaroo rats somehow store water in their
bodies and slowly utilize these resources in the long periods when no free water is available from
dew or rain? The simplest way to settle this question was to determine the total water content in
the animals to see if it decreases as they are kept for long periods on a dry diet. If they slowly use
up their water, the body should become increasingly dehydrated, and if they begin with a store of
water, this should be evident from an initial high water content. Results of such experiments with
kangaroo rats on dry diets for more than 7 weeks showed that the rats maintained their body
weight. There was no trend toward a decrease in water content during the long period of water
deprivation. When the kangaroo rats were given free access to water, they did not drink water.
They did nibble on small pieces of watermelon, but this did not change appreciably the water
content in their bodies, which remained at 66.3 to 67.2 during this period. This is very close to the
water content of dry-fed animals (66.5), and the availability of free water, therefore, did not lead to
any "storage" that could be meaningful as a water reserve. This makes 35 it reasonable to conclude
that physiological storage of water is not a factor in the kangaroo rat's ability to live on dry food.
