boundaryless career

Quick Reference

Is a career that is not confined to a single occupation or organization but involves movement across traditional boundaries. A boundaryless career will involve changing jobs and employment status and may also involve spells outside the conventional labour market, either concentrating on family roles or undertaking a career break. According to some commentators, boundaryless careers are increasing common in a more flexible labour market. [See also portfolio career.]
