It is no secret that we live in a global economy, and because of that, job seekers may need to adapt to a changing job market. This is why higher education isn’t really an option but a necessity in the 21st Century. Other countries are looking to surpass the United States as an economic power, which means that if job seekers don’t prepare for the jobs of the future, they will be left behind. Why? Those jobs will be created in the countries with people ready to fill them.

The change in the job market appears to be more structural than cyclical. This means that once reliable industries which provided jobs are not hiring any more. According to a recent article, some jobs that could be lost include printing machine operators, telemarketers, and postal clerks. Advancement in technology is a big reason for this transition in the job market.

While technology can make our lives easier, it may force some people to look for another line of work. As you’ve probably heard in the news, most of the jobs people once had are not coming back, which means they will need education and/or training in other areas.

The global economy is here. In order to compete, today’s job seekers must prepare for the changing job market.
