My Not So Brilliant Career

By Robin Pascoe


Today’s breed of young adults just starting out on the career ladder might have the world at their feet, but editor Robin Pascoe would not swap places with them for anything.

I never set out with a plan, just took advantage of the opportunities that came my way. No career planning, no jobs coaches, no immaculate cv… it all just seemed to happen.

What a contrast then, to the high-stress, low-security environments that my sons and their friends are ending up in. Joining boards, doing voluntary work, working for nothing for big companies with fat profits or for start-ups with no money, attending networking events, all in pursuit of that oh-so-elusive thing called a career.
