CFES Global Conference: Careers of the Future: Day 2
Landing a good job is the single-most important reason that students give for going to college. Yet 100 million new jobs will emerge in the next five years that don’t exist today, making it difficult to forecast with any degree of certainty what future jobs will be. Trends help us gain insight into tomorrow’s jobs. We know, for example, that jobs requiring physical skills are rapidly declining, while jobs that involve automation and artificial intelligence are surging. Covid-accelerated workplace changes have allowed us to better understand and accept the virtual dimension of work and learning. We also know that emerging jobs require higher level social and analytical skills. In this roundtable, experts will discuss how to prepare now for an uncertain tomorrow.
