We now know that 50-60% of jobs that will be available 5-10 years from now have either not been invented or are not commonly available. How do we know what will be the real jobs of the very near future and help people prepare for them?
On June 19th, I will be conducting a Roundtable at NCDA in Long Beach with Danita Redd. Our topic is Being a Visionary Career Counselor.
