Are you a professional engineer between 55 and 70 in the workforce? Swinburne University wants to hear from you.
Professionals Australia is supporting Swinburne University PhD student, Alison Herron, recruit participants to her project:
‘Professionals working in later life: personal experiences and changing contexts’.
The purpose of Alison’s research is to explore the experience of late working life from the perspective of professional engineers.
At present, there is very little collective knowledge about how professional engineers are experiencing their career in terms of diversity of the working arrangements, the constraints and limitations they face and the opportunities presented to them.
This study aims to contribute valuable knowledge about these personal experiences and influences on individual professionals’ continuing engagement in the workforce.
Alison will provide Professionals Australia with feedback about the findings, which will help us build a clearer understanding of what working life is like for engineers in late career.
The study will involve Alison conducting one-off interviews with 40 professional engineers over the next six months.
This is your opportunity to tell your story and contribute to a more complete understanding of what it’s like to be working in the current economic and social climate.
So get involved.
