This paper aims to explore the development in the labour market – and the working individual’s place herein. It determines a definition that focuses on two different periods – one where production and output were the focal points – and one where consumption is. From our used theoreticians narrated liabilities, this study settles that it was in the free time outside work that the individual fulfilled her self-realisation in the period where production was the focal point. Today, self-actualisation is achieved through a climbing of the career ladder more so than in the past. Through a qualitative interview survey it is concluded that the contemporary individual emphasises the importance of finding a rewarding job. An occupation must challenge the individual’s intelligence, provide career development possibilities as well as contain some degree of uncertainty in order to be relevant to the working individual’s fulfilment of her own potential.
