Stumbled across this interactive on Quartz that describes five trends changing the way we work (click to enlarge):

  • Shifting capital investment: from tangible assets to intangibles
  • The rise of data
  • The talent economy
  • Changing times, changing employees?
  • Good-bye Nine-To-Five (rise of contingent workers)

With each chart/graph provided, students have an opportunity to interact with the data to learn facts like:

  • Various roles with descriptions within the on-demand economy (e.g. independent contractor, moonlighter, etc.)
  • Reasons why millenials change jobs
  • Projections on the amount of data used by the year 2020 (hint: it will be a lot more than what we use in 2016!)

Perfect for your Careers Unit to help explain how the job market is changing!
