Question from Alice in Vancouver, BC

 “If we as young people are going to be doing jobs that don’t even exist yet, how do we prepare for our future?”  
 
Set the vision for the type of career you would like. It may not exist, but you can create it! Do what you love and do it often. Set your job for your ideal lifestyle. Before there was Apple, there was Steve Jobs. Before the light bulb, there was Thomas Edison. Before there was rock and roll, there was Elvis. No matter the job, figure out who you are, and the rest will fall into place.
 
All the best in your career path!
