A few weeks ago I was interviewed by Alina Dizik who published an interesting article on BBC.com about the future of work: The next generation of jobs won’t be made up of professions.
Several important points for young people were discussed:
- To prepare for the future, we need to shift from thinking about jobs and careers to thinking about challenges and problems.
- Deciding the skills you want to use leads to a career that’s more targeted—and thus more likely to bring you satisfaction.
- Developing precise goals helps teenagers plan for what many call a ‘portfolio career’.
The article was shared thousands of times online and led to several new connections and potential clients.
I’m quite grateful that these important messages are being talked about. It’s a step towards preparing young people for a different future.
