Young People

Welcome to the young people section

Ever wondered what job you may be doing in 20 years? Have you ever thought that it may not have been invented yet?

You could just try different jobs until you find one you like, or you could use labour market information to help you plan you career! Put simply, labour market information is information about jobs in all sorts of industries and professions. Labour market information can help you to find out about which areas of employment are growing (meaning there may be jobs for you in the future) and which are shrinking, which could mean that when you are older, that jobs in that field are not as available.

Are you an ethical hacker in the making? A budding UAV Swarm Co-ordinator, algorithm auditor, retrologist or data bodyguard?
