A report published by Dell Technologies noted that 85% of jobs that will exist in 2030 haven’t been invented yet, meaning today’s students need to be empowered to think differently about their future careers.
We know that about 1 in 5 new jobs are in the skilled trades— but only 12% of students who come to HIEC are interested in the trades pathway.75% of students who visited HIEC’s Career Lab said they want career-related experience— but almost 40% weren’t aware that experiential learning opportunities like co-op were available in high school.
