The Jobs of Tomorrow: What Skills the Economy Needs, What Employers Want


In his new book, There Is Life After College, Jeffrey J. Selingo looks at the fundamental experiences in and out of school that shape success in the job market today — the skills that prove most helpful and how young adults can better navigate the route from high school through college and successfully launch and thrive in a career.

You are invited to a thought-provoking conversation about the role of educators and employers in helping young adults succeed in a 21st-century economy. Join authors Jeffrey J. Selingo and Daniel H. Pink for this important discussion on Thursday, April 14, 2016. Brandon Busteed, Executive Director, Gallup Education and Workforce Development, will welcome attendees.

Complimentary copies of There Is Life After College will be available to attendees at the session, courtesy of Arizona State University.

From the bestselling author of College (Un)Bound comes a hopeful, inspiring blueprint to help alleviate parents’ anxiety and prepare their college-educated child to successfully land a good job after graduation.

There Is Life After College offers students, parents and even recent graduates the practical advice and insight they need to jump-start their careers. Education expert Jeffrey Selingo answers key questions — Why is the transition to post-college life so difficult for many recent graduates? How can graduates market themselves to employers who are reluctant to provide on-the-job training? What can institutions and individuals do to end the current educational and economic stalemate? — and offers a practical step-by-step plan that every young professional can follow. From the end of high school through college graduation, he lays out exactly what students need to do to acquire the skills that companies want.

We look forward to seeing you on April 14 for this book discussion and reception. Seating is limited for this event, so sign up today.
