Pathways for Employ final conference

The PATHWAYS FOR EMPLOY final conference will be held on 9 May 2018 in Brussels.

In this event we will look at the digital skills needed in two interesting profiles for employment offering opportunities in the coming years: entrepreneur and ‘virtual worker’. By virtual worker we understand anyone working remotely for more than 20% of their time.

90% of jobs in the near future will need digital skills at least at basic level, but entrepreneurs and virtual workers are particular profiles – they must rely on their own competences more than others. What are the digital competences needed to be autonomous, safe, productive, creative? How can we assess our knowledge and identify our gaps? Are we ready to be entrepreneurs and virtual workers in a digital age and to make the best of digital technologies?

We will try to find the answers to these and other questions in this interactive workshop.
