How does the future of work look?

We conducted a review of the Future of Work literature, and found that critical thinking, interpersonal and people skills that are not easily automated will become top priorities in future workplaces. Universities need to help students to shift their mindsets from preparing for a specific graduate job to focusing on a portfolio of transferable skills that will allow them to succeed in an automated and globalised workplace.


Where are HASS graduates now?

We found that a large number of alumni work in higher education, public education or government (with many working at UQ). Most live in Australia, United States or United Kingdom.
