Ep 766 show:
Welcome back to a new week on The Perna Syndicate! I’m Mark Perna. Nowadays it can be challenging to make sense of the economy—especially if you’re a young person getting ready to launch your career. One thing that is clear is that new technology, such as generative artificial intelligence tools like ChatGPT, will bring about massive changes in the coming years—in ways we can’t even imagine yet.
While there is plenty of concern over the potential downsides of AI, its positive upsides might be overlooked. That’s especially true as it applies to the career prospects of the younger generations.
It’s an exciting time to be young and headed toward your first job. Yes, there’s some uncertainty in the economy and job market. But massive change, while disruptive, creates remarkable possibilities for new jobs, better careers, and more financially rewarding work that is interesting and beneficial. This is a time of tremendous opportunity!
A new age of technology is here and I believe we can leverage it to make the world a better place. Not only is AI reshaping the workforce of the future the way the Internet did a generation ago, but it has also opened up new career pathways for young people that don’t require a four-year degree.
These fast-changing workforce dynamics signal that professional success is still very much within our reach—it’s just shifting. We will talk more about that shift tomorrow on The Perna Syndicate. Catch you then!
