Our newest seminar!
This session focuses on what career development professionals need to know to prepare, and more importantly, how to inspire their clients for the fourth industrial revolution and the future workplace.
Parson’s discussed the importance of industry knowledge for good career decision-making. The future of work and industries is being impacted by the technologies of the fourth industrial revolution, as well as industry-specific technologies. These technologies are changing industries in ways we never imagined. Bioprinting is being used to create skin and human organs, drones are being used to deliver medical equipment to isolated accident scenes, and we are creating spaceports, moon bases, and space labs.
Career counselors, coaches, and practitioners will have an opportunity to learn about fourth industrial technologies plus industry-specific technologies, how the future of work is changing, and how companies around the world are integrating this technology into their businesses. Practitioners will be encouraged to explore new work opportunities in a variety of industries and think about how they will share this information with their clients. They will be encouraged to discuss how we will work in the future, the gig economy, emerging technologies, and how to help clients develop a GET (Global, Entrepreneurial, and Technological) Ready mindset to succeed in a changing workplace.
