Australian students chasing non-existent careers

The future of work is increasingly digital but will the next generation of Australian workers be ready to meet the challenge?

Probably not, according to the Foundation for Young Australians, a national not-for-profit group that works with young Australians to create social change.

The foundation says 60 per cent of students are studying or training for occupations that will not exist in the future or will be completely transformed by automation.
