Careers seldom progress in a linear fashion. Yet society imposes this expectation on individuals trying to chart their way through life. As unemployment rates soar, young people require more robust preparation for adulthood. Moreover, many will likely work in roles that do not exist yet. Among the various universal challenges of parenting, this reality compels parents to venture into unfamiliar territory: guiding their children towards secure and fulfilling futures that may not mirror their own experiences. Parents presumably want the best for their children, and unconventional ways to attaining that outcome will heighten their concerns. So, how, then, can parents effectively equip their children to adapt to and thrive in a rapidly changing world of work?
This online course aims to assuage some of those concerns by providing concrete strategies that you can immediately put into practice. Alongside other parents pondering this issue, you will learn more about the entrepreneurship landscape and build a custom action plan to help you and your child to explore it together. Whatever your child’s aspirations, are you ready for that journey?
