Description This article was written by Sean T Lyons, Linda Schweitzer and Eddy S.W. and it was published in the year 2015 by Emerald.

The second assertion is that the authors are trying to test is based on the fact that ‘new careers’ literature is also making propositions that career mobility patterns are becoming diverse as people continue engaging in more downward and lateral job changes. Lyons, Schweitzer & Ng make comparisons of career mobility patterns across four different generations of workers. The main research topic was "How have careers changed? An investigation of changing career patterns across four generations”. To conduct their research, Lyons, Schweitzer & Ng formulated three different hypotheses. H1a. Matures/boomers/Xers will have lower job mobility than all other generations. H1b. Matures/boomers/Xers will have lower organizational mobility than all other generations. H1c. The career mobility pattern of the Matures/boomers/Xers will show a greater proportion of upward movement relative to all other generations. For data collection purposes, Lyons, Schweitzer & Ng evaluated the career mobility patterns of four generations of Canadian professionals (n=2,555): Matures (born prior to 1946); Baby Boomers (1946-1964); Generation Xers (1965-1979) and Millennials (1980 or later).

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
