A changing market, a revolution in hiring practices, and the declining value of traditional curriculums in many schools are changing the face of the global economies. Our trajectory leads to a future that is all about the leveraging of technology to fuel growth and impactful change.
It is time to look to the future for clues on what work will entail and tailor personal branding to what we can expect. We have seen the emergence of new technologies in all markets and fields.
How will technology affect work?
What skills do we need to develop to survive and thrive in the workplace of the future?
To help its students get answers to those questions and many more, The EPI school held a mini MBA course. During this event, a lot of discussions about the future of work and tech took place. This event was uniquely special because of the speaker, Ines Nasri, and the topic. This event was organized just for her to come and speak about the matters at hand. She is well known for being an avid technology enthusiast and futurist.
This places her in the unique position of being able to offer an accurate projection of where the markets are going, concerning the careers of the future.
According to Ines, the nature of how we work, how we get jobs, and the qualities of a good employee have changed in the past few years. Freelancing is at the forefront of revolutionizing hiring practices and how work is assigned. In a competitive market, the relevance of skills is almost the only thing that matters.
Among the main points of discussion, Ines provided insight into the 10 vital skills you will need to succeed.
Created in 2011, EPI School has three schools now. They include; Ecole Polytechnique (EPI-Polytec) for the training of engineers, School of Architecture (EPI-Arch) for the formation of architectural engineers, and Business School School (EPI-Business School) for the preparation of managers.
When combined with the excellent infrastructure and modern facilities at the campus, the students have the exceptional opportunity of being able to design joint multi-disciplinary projects that will give them an edge in the future jobs market.
As they learned from Ines, it takes more than just an excellent education to be competitive in the future. The work of technical experts and distinguished speakers, helps students get information first-hand, from people who are in the market and know what is happening and how.
