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!

Tim Ranzetta

Tim's saving habits started at seven when a neighbor with a broken hip gave him a dog walking job. Her recovery, which took almost a year, resulted in Tim getting to know the bank tellers quite well (and accumulating a savings account balance of over $300!). His recent entrepreneurial adventures have included driving a shredding truck, analyzing executive compensation packages for Fortune 500 companies and helping families make better college financing decisions. After volunteering in 2010 to create and teach a personal finance program at Eastside College Prep in East Palo Alto, Tim saw firsthand the impact of an engaging and activity-based curriculum, which inspired him to start a new non-profit, Next Gen Personal Finance.
