It’s been widely reported that the workforce of the future is going to look much different than it has in the past, especially in the halls of government. Today’s average college student is going to have seven to eight careers in their life, JB Holston, dean of the University of Denver’s Daniel Felix Ritchie School of Engineering and Computer Science, told Government Technology in October at the Colorado Digital Government Summit.

Closing the gap on immediate workforce needs and ensuring that employees can manage their multiple careers successfully will be key to staffing public-sector IT offices now and in the future.
