Understanding future work force trends and addressing professional development opportunities

The way that we do our jobs 10 years from now will be different from the way we do them today. During a talk by
Phil Gardner on recruiting trends he focused on some of the new challenges that employers and career services must address. He noted that employers are less likely to act in an uncertain environment.

Before entering into the information age, employers met potential employees during career fairs and this was likely their only point of contact. Today the search for talent is 24/7 with the advent of advanced analytics, and social media.
