Anders Sorman-Nilsson: How do We Train For Jobs That Don’t Yet Exist

Futurist Anders Sorman-Nilsson  shared his insights on how we prepare our children for jobs that don’t yet exist on a podcast with Adam Straney for the Talking Lifestyle Radio.

Anders stresses important points such as “The career advice that I got handed down from my parents to either be a banker, a medical doctor or a lawyer, which I ended up becoming before becoming a futurist, that’s good advice. But not advice that will necessarily be future-proof.” and enumerates three essential questions that one should ask when thinking about careers of the future.
