    This is a perfect discussion starter. Please tell me where i can get copies for use with K12 schools. My program, Virginia Advanced Study Strategies, works with business, communities, and schools to engage students in rigor, relevance, and relationships as they prepare for the careers of tomorrow. This is exactly the type of poster that we can leave with classrooms from elementary through high school to engage discussion.

    This is a very thought-provoking topic, because we live in a society that is very fast-paced. There is little to no time to stop and ponder on our futures or on even what’s happening today and how our future will look. Love the infographic, as it provides a great visual on what’s ahead in terms of jobs and job requirements. It provides a lot of information for further research for those looking to make career changes or upgrade their skills for future career advancements. Thank you for sharing.
