The modern world is ever-changing. The career opportunities available today may well not exist in five or 10 years. New career areas develop all the time. It is likely that a future job or even an entire career field has not been invented yet. For this reason alone, keep an open mind and be on the alert for changes in your chosen career field.

Technology is now as important a skill as are reading, writing, and mathematics. Everyone needs to be able to use computers, search for information on the Internet, use word processors and spreadsheets, and download apps. These skills are now common and useful in every profession. People who master social media gain an advantage in sharing knowledge and connecting with others. Kids in Silicon Valley who can write code have an edge in starting technology companies.
