Flat world job hunting

In the flattened, web-based world of the 21st Century, our children and grandchildren will compete for the best jobs with young people from India, China, Germany and Brazil.

They’ll no longer compete only with people from their own culture for high-paying jobs. They’ll compete with a larger pool of applicants with great skills and experiences.

It may be a lot like the high school basketball star who goes off to college only to find that he/she can’t even make the varsity team.

Our kids are counting on us to give them the education and training they need to compete. We can’t short-change them.
