The world of work is constantly changing, and just as some of the jobs of today didn’t exist when you were at school, many of the jobs of tomorrow have not been invented yet! Finding out about the future of the labour market can really help a young person as they consider their future career. Where will the jobs of tomorrow be? What impact will the rise of the robots and new technology have? Which industries and sectors are growing, and which are in decline? Will going to university increase your son or daughter’s chances of career success?
The Careers Writers Association operate the very helpful Parental Guidance website, which includes a range of information and ideas covering apprenticeship and university options, GCSE and A level choices, work experience and CV, application and interview tips. It’s well worth a visit.
