  12. 12. Press &quot;The perennial question regarding career options used to be &quot;What do you want to do when you grow up?&quot; Today, the question has changed. Instead of figuring out what we want to do once, then being locked into a career for the rest of our lives, we're now asking the question &quot;What do you want to do next?“ &quot; &quot;...It’s an opportune time for Path 101, a career guidance service, to be launching. Let’s be clear: This is not another job posting service... Instead, Path 101 takes an analytical approach to provide users with guidance for a career path. It does this a number of ways, with the three key areas being: A personality test, a resume analyzer and a career advice section. ...This comparison of your information to millions of other resumes, gives you an easy-to-understand breakdown of what careers might be good options for you. &quot;A lot of times we think about career planning as a service an employer providers to its employees, but it is important to recognize that with all of the job changes people will make in their careers that there will be a desire for an individual to control this outside of the context of the employer . This is a good example of such a service directed at the individual.&quot; Jim Holincheck's (Gartner VP) HCM Software Blog Also featured in:
