Our Story

We are concerned about the future of work. Across all levels of education, workers must increasingly navigate challenging career transitions, partly driven by global economic trends, changing employer practices, demographic shifts, environmental changes, and technology advancements. What do these changes mean for earning sustainable livelihoods?

Beyond financial well-being, the psychological and social impact of unemployment and under-employment are just beginning to be explored. How do we maintain our well-being amidst the turbulence and transitions? What forms of support help us find meaningful and remunerative work?

At ICT, researchers, coaches, employers and job seekers collaborate to develop strategic data-driven research-based initiatives meeting these critical and pertinent career transition challenges head on.

The Institute for Career Transitions (ICT), founded by MIT-based scholars, researches, educates, advocates, and explores new models for effective support of individuals in career transitions.
