What is Mid-Career Crisis?

When you feel lost and unsure of what your career priorities are, and you no longer feel the same passion for your job like before, you might be experiencing the dreaded mid-career crisis.

A mid-career crisis can happen to anyone. It can hit even those who objectively have the most fulfilling jobs. When it does, it causes pain for you and generates productivity losses for employers. Yet, mid-career crisis remains stigmatized and under-researched, leaving crucial questions unanswered.

How can I manage Mid-Career Crisis?

For most, the response to the crisis is to make a mid-career switch. It can be as small as changing roles within a company, or as drastic as taking on an entirely different industry. In this Career Excellence series, there will be one-to-one CAREER COACHING, trending TALKS and one DIALOGUE that will impart insights on the following:

  • Understand the reality about career switching in the current job market
  • Uncover hush-hush considerations before “throwing the letter”
  • Minimize risky decision-making through profiling

Day 1 – 11th July

Transiting from MNC to SME (and vice versa)
Speaker: James Siew, Director, Consulting Solutions from Training Vision Institute

Time: 10:00am — 11:00am
Venue: Lecture Theatre

Synopsis

The business landscape and employment market in Singapore has transformed. In the past there was a distinct difference between a MNC and a SME, from a business focus, organizational structure and internal culture point of view, but over time these differences have become less apparent.

Find out about ‘inside’ perspectives of what it is like to work in either an MNC or an SME, and do these differences really matter?

The Courage to Start Anew
Speaker: Luke Elijah Lim, Life Coach, Spiritual Practitioner, Branding/Image Consultant, Founder of Heaven on Earth

Time: 1:00pm — 2:00pm
Venue: Lecture Theatre

Synopsis

Spiritual life coach Luke Elijah will share his inspiring career transition story of how and why he choose to give up a glamorous, high flying, and multiple award winning career in the fashion and media industry to embody the polar opposite contrast of becoming a spiritual and meditation coach instead. Luke will also be sharing tips, pointers and simple tricks on how to remove fears, and have the courage to face obstacles and challenges in life, as well as to integrate changes in one’s career path.

Understanding the Broken Promise of Education
Speaker: Anderson Tan, President, SAPTCO

Time: 4:00pm — 5:00pm
Venue: Lecture Theatre

Synopsis

The conventional human capital theory values qualifications and promises rewards for academic achievers. Over the past decade, we are witnessing the phenomenon of disruptions in technology, politics, social and economic systems, leading to breaking up of the highly regarded promises of education.

How are the promises of education broken, and new hopes created? How can one equip himself or herself sufficiently for the future in order not to be disappointed again?

Networking Dinner with Panelists

Time: 7:00pm — 8:00pm
Venue: Outside of Lecture Theatre

Evening Dialogue: To Jump or not to Jump?
Panelists: Collin Wu, Luke Elijah Lim, Rupert Gan

Time: 8:00pm — 10:00pm
Venue: Lecture Theatre

Synopsis

“My career does not bring me purpose and meaning anymore.” “I feel that I need to seek for my calling.” “I don’t see myself doing this job for the rest of my life.”

If you find yourself asking these questions, you might be facing a mid career crisis. But fret not, you are not alone. Everybody respond to a mid career crisis differently. Some respond by changing roles within a company, some can be as drastic as taking on an entirely different industry. Some might just be lost, taking on all the different advice thrown at them, and taking that risk to jump to any career that comes along their way.

On July 11th, come speak to the experts that form the panel of the evening dialogue. We will explore the different facets of a mid-crisis experience and what are the important considerations behind the decision of a career switch.
