How to Succeed at Jobs That Don't Exist with Futurist Chris Bishop @FairCo TEEM

Mon, March 2 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST

Nanopharmacist? Lunar tour guide? Robotic ethics consultant? Augmented reality medical content designer? Have you heard of these jobs? If not, you will. And today’s learners and their children will be doing them. And working in many other roles we can only dream about - sitting here in 2020.

85% of the jobs that current high school students will be doing in the next 20 years have not been invented yet. And they will have 8-10 jobs by the time they are 38 - according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

So how do we prepare for the 21st century’s global border-less workplace? By providing insight into what lies ahead and strategies to successfully manage how and what they learn.

Wilton resident Christopher Bishop has a fascination with how careers will be transformed in the coming decades. Based on the eight varied careers he has had over the last 45 years, Chris has developed a program to give today’s learners insight into how the world of work is being disrupted. He’s led seminars on this subject at Baruch, Bennington College, Columbia, Duke, Stern School of Business/NYU, Texas A&M, Queens College and Union College.  And a version of Chris’s talk will soon be available on LinkedIn Learning.
