I recently published a new article in the journal NICEC called The impact of Covid-19 on his career. It’s actually the center of a lot of the work I’ve done since Cubid’s beginning and trying to draw some theory from it.
In this article I explore the career experience during and after the COVID-19 epidemic. I build on my experience and a wide range of recent research in the field to offer a framework for understanding the impact of the epidemic on careers, which relates to its multicultural nature and its temporality.
The article provides an analysis that addresses the micro, meso and macro levels at which people’s careers take place. It has been argued that times of crisis rearrange our temporary experiences and create a new cycle based on:
- The immediate period of crisis;
- The subsequent period when the restrictions are lifted and we return to the increasingly debating idea of a ‘normal life’; and
- In the long run, when these recurring crises rearrange our thinking and our society.
This framework can be described as follows.
In this article I discuss this framework with reference to the experience of the first two years of the COVID-19 epidemic in the UK, and use it to highlight the cyclical and ongoing nature of such crises.
I hope you find it useful…
