Appearance on Dutch Radio (BNR) about Career Success - February 7th, 2023
On February 7th, 2023, I was invited to the BNR show "Werkverkenners" (work explorers) to talk about success. Specifically, the show focused on the question to what degree we can control our own success in our work and careers. During the conversation, I shared some of my insights from our research on career shocks and career success. For example, we talked about the many different predictors of career success. Some of those, we can control ourselves, such as developing certain skills and performing well. Others, though, are also externally influenced, such as receiving a promotion or being designated as a "talent". We also talked about the important role of unexpected and major events that can suddenly steer our direction in a different way. Overall, we had a really interesting conversation about the topic!
