How to Prepare for Careers of Tomorrow in 10 Steps

Students are now being educated for job titles that do not yet exist. Ten years ago, there was no such thing as an Autonomous Car Engineer, Nanotechnologist, Health-Care Simulation Educator, Social Media Marketer, 3-D Designer, Data Analytics Specialist, Virtual TV/Film/Theatre Set Specialist, Blockchain Developer or an Augmented Reality Designer.
