    Career Navigation for Future Talent

    Career Navigation for Future Talent

     As the world continues to change at a rapid pace, the job market is changing, too. With these changes comes the need for educational institutions and other non-traditional talent pipelines to keep up with the seemingly constant growth and evolution. In this episode, Tameshia discusses the challenges many young people are still facing when it comes to building a successful career, or even choosing the right path to begin with.

    Reviewing clips from three different Horizons 2021 conversations, Tameshia discusses how there is an urgent need for policy changes, increased investment, and a more equitable and cohesive journey from educational institutions to the workforce. The episode will explore what’s still standing in the way of career success for many people, and how we can work together to help to streamline the process of career navigation.

    The journey from learning to earning can be ambiguous and unstructured. To complete the trek successfully, you have to engage in what’s often called career navigation.

    Knowing how to approach career navigation is especially important for young people—our country’s future talent. And that’s the topic JFF addresses in the third episode of our Horizons podcast. Host Tameshia Bridges Mansfield first shares insights from Gorick Ng, author of The Unspoken Rules: Secrets to Starting Your Career Off Right. Then workforce development experts Suzan LeVine and Mary Alice McCarthy explore youth apprenticeship. And finally, David Coleman, the CEO of the College Board, talks about rethinking the impact of the SATs.
