Measuring Employability & Life-Long Learning Mindsets Needed for Careers in the 21st Century

A/Prof Ringo Ho Moon-Ho, Nanyang Technological University

We aim to develop a suite of psychological measures of the new, more proactive and entrepreneurial “employability-oriented” career mindsets and behaviours and the spirit of lifelong learning that are needed for greater career resilience in Singapore’s future century workforce. In doing so, we seek to provide a baseline measure for subsequent profiling/monitoring of our pre-workforce, tertiary students’ new career mindsets and lifelong learning attitudes.
