With our ever-changing, high-tech infused global economy, the career landscape of America is evolving and new careers are being created every day.
As a result there’s a growing gap between the skills employers need and the skills Americans possess. In fact, experts predict that by 2025 we could have 20 million jobs without enough college graduates to fill them, in fields such as cloud computing, healthcare technology, cyber security and accounting.*
That’s why at DeVry University we’re teaming up with companies like Cisco to help us all meet this challenge head on. Here you’ll find articles, videos, infographics, interviews, and more about the careers that are coming, and how we can all be better prepared for the jobs of today and the ones on the horizon.
Delve deeper into the issues, discover what kinds of opportunities are opening up, share what you’re learning and join in the conversation. Together we can make sure that when 2025 approaches, you’re ready, your friends and neighbors and family are ready, our country is ready — with the know how we need for a new tomorrow.
