    While traditional careers will continue to exist, the skills and behaviors needed to perform these jobs are evolving.

    It is true that the nature of work has changed dramatically since the turn of the century, as this article notes.

    As an organization that hires nearly 90,000 people a year, Deloitte understands the wide range of skills young people need in order to succeed in today’s rapidly evolving global economy. That’s why we work both internally and externally to help the next generation of leaders build the skills needed for the jobs of today and tomorrow.

    A Deloitte mentorship program at Canada’s largest agency serving at-risk youth has helped young people build job-readiness and soft skills. In India, we are positively impacting the lives of 10 million girls and women by 2030 through education and skills development. In Papua New Guinea, we are helping schoolchildren read and write their way to a better future by providing books, computers and pro bono support. Within our own company, we offer professional development retreats, mentoring and coaching and networking opportunities to young professionals.

    Our hope is that we may help young people around the world – like those in this article and beyond – achieve their career aspirations.
