“Careers come and go. Jobs change. This is nothing new – it’s just happening far faster than ever before.” -- Price Pritchett

Understanding what’s happening in the world of work is part of how we help our children plan for success. While we certainly don’t want to encourage them to pursue a particular field just because it is predicted to have many job openings, they still need workplace information in order to understand various options, career fields, and career clusters.
