These days, there is a lot of talk about the 4th industrial revolution -- the disruption of global labour markets. There are a range of forces driving macro shifts in labour markets -- from burgeoning middle-classes in emerging markets, to the role of technology in industry -- and these forces will impact every age group in different ways. But the group that we think about are teens, students who intend to enter the labour markets in the next 4-7 years. For these students, who are already grappling with a post-secondary education landscape that is evolving rapidly in real-time, staying abreast of emerging changes in labour markets is not just important, it is vital. During this session, we will explore the key labour market shifts that will affect Diploma students, and I will propose several concrete strategies for helping these students contextualize higher education and early career thinking within a world whereby the only constant is change.
