The ‘jobs of the future’ do not require a college degree

One of the repeating themes in this blog is how I find it distressing that our society places such an excessive value on the college degree as a necessary prerequisite to a successful career, despite the fact the skilled trades can provide rewarding careers, both financially and personally.  This short piece at Forbes nicely summarizes those thoughts, as well as bringing up an interesting (and troublesome) trend toward requiring college degrees (and excessive student loan debt) for jobs which really don’t need a degree.  I think it’s well worth a look.
