In today’s feature article, Chip Rossetti explains that even now that’s he’s in graduate school — after leaving an editorial career in New York, and then an editing job in the Middle East — he’s never really left publishing.

He talks about the need to diversify his professional identity in today’s business and publishing climate. People change jobs more frequently and the economic climate has motivated more people to become entrepreneurs, freelancers and students. Of course, digitization also requires today’s workforce to possess an entirely new and broader range of skills.

Does this mean that people can no longer identify with a single profession or company? Do you find that people are juggling more than one professional identity these days?
