Preparing for the future simply means being informed on technological changes and innovations. This will enable them prepare for the future so that they will not be left behind.

Sectary jobs, accounting jobs, invoicing are being replaced daily by computer software’s. With all this changes happening around you. Don’t you know that our work environment will be absolutely different in the future.Preparing for the future is the best thing you can do for your self and your children.

GTbank Corvus Magazine 4th edition predicts that “According to Forbes, jobs such as postmasters, switchboard operators, agricultural workers, data entry keyers, door-to-door/street vendors, petrol pump operators are fast disappearing and would massively decline in numbers by 2020. The shift to a knowledge based, tech-heavy service economy is hitting many workers hard, and will affect jobs like retail cashiers, travel agents, taxi drivers, librarians, print media, sports referees/umpires,and even bank tellers, all of which are unlikely to exist by 2030. In addition, it is expected that by 2030, the technological landscape will be unrecognizable and about 60% of jobs will be completely new compared to today’s workforce. Children going into primary school today will likely work in roles that have not even been created yet.”

Students should stop enrolling in school without proper research. They need to research any course they wish to study to avoid wasting their time.

These are some of the work for now and the Future
