There is no such a thing as lifetime career. In the last several years workers have seen their jobs threatened or made obsolete by technological advancement, deregulation of international trade, merging of corporate organizations and business sellouts. The average worker cannot accurately anticipate these changes before they occur. Such unexpected changes could be compared to the appearance of water buffaloes in an African village, where I grew up. They invaded villages without warning, devastating social structures, uprooting the harmonious livelihood of villagers and left them feeling insecure and stressed out.
