The university graduates of 2025 will be need to be socially intelligent, be subject matter experts, be independent learners, be highly innovative, creative, and collaborative; have portable skillsets, have a solid resume with relevant work experience, be new media literate, and be open-minded to have successful career in a job market dominated by casual employment and short-term contracts. It’s likely they’ll work in a “bleisure” environment – and where they work may even be fitted with napping pods. ‘Bleisure’ is a portmanteau of business and leisure. It’s also possible, as some parents are buying their children housing today because of the prohibitive housing market in Sydney and Melbourne, parents will also buy their children businesses for them to run. These predictions were delivered by Rob Lawrence, founder of education market research company Prospect, to an audience of tertiary education professionals at the Australian International Education conference.
