CMRubinWorld asks millennials to share their experiences on being future-ready in an age of dramatic technological change.

As technology advances and corporations shift to automation, discussion on whether or not youth are ready for future jobs has constantly been in our headlines. According to the Pew Research center, only 16% of Americans believe that a four-year degree course will prepare students for a high-paying job in today’s economy. The difference between what an employer may need from their workers and what is being taught in schools is growing and it has become evident that lifelong learning is important for the future of the youth.

C.M Rubin (founder of CMRubinWorld) asked millennials around the world to share their opinions on youth and lifelong learning as well as their expectations for the future.

“Although formal education and degrees are crucial ways to gain knowledge, I strongly believe learning can be found in most experiences, interactions, and jobs,” says Kamna Kathuria. “Millennials everywhere are undoubtedly more tolerant and informed than the generations before them. Their beliefs and attitudes, however, depend much more on the environments they are brought up and educated in than in their generational ties,” Sajia Darwish explains. “I easily dared to learn Spanish and found it much easier to master the linguistic structures because I had spent time before learning the structures of French – which are similar in many ways,” says Alusine Barrie. “I am confident to want to study economics and computer programming (which both require a healthy dose of mathematical reasoning) because I have developed the prerequisite skills before.”
