Your Career in Journalism Is Over. Now What?


Amy Wrzesniewski

Wharton management professor Amy Wrzesniewski and INSEAD’s Winnie Jiang studied the shrinking field of journalism to better understand how workers grapple with occupational instability and declining careers. Their co-authored paper, “Perceived Fixed or Flexible Meaning: Toward a Model of Meaning Fixedness and Navigating Occupational Instability,” appears in the journal Administrative Science Quarterly.

Knowledge at Wharton spoke with Wrzesniewski about the research. Read an edited transcript of the conversation below.
