Future Proof Your Career – Vancouver Tech Events

The world we live is constantly changing and the majority of jobs today will either not exist by 2020 or have the majority of their core skill set shifted. These disruptive changes, happening in every industry, will have enormous impacts on the employment landscape over the next five years and beyond.
