The workplace is dynamic and is in constant motion and change. Knowledge is always changing and shifting. Material that students learn in their first year of university may have changed significantly by the third year of their program. Similarly, many of the top in demand jobs today did not exist 10 years ago. Students are being prepared for jobs that do not exist yet, using technologies that are still being invented to solve problems we do not know yet. Instead of focusing on acquiring a job that may or may not exist by the time youth enter the workforce, focusing on supporting youth to navigate the challenges may be more sustaining.
