I saw this video on LinkedIn, and wanted to share. I continually tell my son (who is a day shy of finishing his Junior year of high school at this writing) that tomorrow’s jobs aren’t necessarily today’s jobs, so not to worry. Heck, when I graduated high school, there was no Internet, so any web-related jobs of any kind, like a digital content strategist, was not a job.
Watch this–this is why we have to keep learning and growing to be prepared for the next thing.
When I was looking for the original video to embed here, it turns out that this video came out a year ago. Nonetheless, it’s still applicable.

One thought on “Why we always need to keep learning…”
Millennial generational expert? [headdesk]
Of course, I agree completely that we always need to keep learning. As long as I’m still breathing, I hope I’ll be learning.
