The workforce of the future

North Carolina, as with many states, has been debating Common Core--at it heart, what students should know and be able to do when they finish school. Just five years from now in the year 2020 what will the workforce look like? With baby boomers phasing out and millennial's phasing in, technology will leave its mark on all facets of the market, including the professionals we choose, the way we will job hunt, our working methods, and – perhaps most importantly – skills we'll need for success....more >>
