A search of the key phrase “internet careers” nets almost 1 billion results. And yet there was a time when such a thing did not exist.
Thirty years ago, adult learners and college students had absolutely no clue there would be a technology revolution like we’ve had.
And certainly no one anticipated a career that would require a degree in something called web development, interactive media design or social media design – let alone emergency management and homeland security.
But things change.
New job titles.
New degree programs.
New career opportunities.
Wouldn’t it be nice to know what the future holds? Wouldn’t it be awesome to accurately predict which degrees and careers will have the highest salaries? Wouldn’t a crystal ball come in handy for seeing what the best future careers will be?
