Make sense especially with them.

Well there are many different forms of matter that it personnel hybrid there.

Kind of information from the -- But also from a marketing people and for the -- people and from the product development people and that they sit -- and that's where manager.
But yeah health care management and administration asked -- -- booming field I was reading.
A couple weeks ago that.
That's the health care administration is going to be it's gonna create twenty -- 20% of all new jobs by the year 20/20.
But it quite -- -- here.
Helped bury it could be that that there are a lot of -- -- was done in individual profit.
But now more or group practices minority group practices that are -- by a larger organization at the Kaiser Permanente and other kind of ultimately what -- -- -- And so I -- her management could have been very important.
And another thing of course is that you have -- what regulated there's been a big game record in the way up there right now and what payment of and so.
The deal with the game to -- put that.
-- -- 34 on the list are computer science and communications and I feel like we did sum that up with like pay interest or Twitter her Oprah.
You know that the intersection of communications and the well.
Right I think communication is.
Everyone -- it.
It for the network that would put connected now.
One organization wanna be connected.
So people that manage.
Good indication at -- and technical or request to have global public relations.
It is kind of -- Back from from the concept of the technology but communication people have to -- -- -- -- but now.
Whether -- -- how to replicate.
Right and graphic design you can throw right into that mixes well especially as it pertains to the web.
Petroleum engineering this is at a key topic because the oil industry the natural gas and this industry fracking offshore.
Offshore oil exploration these are huge fields big money big -- in these skills as well so.
To try him engineering making the top -- We're coming forward forget about it we're getting we're what we're going to put Saudi Arabia in terms of going out but -- year -- -- that -- -- -- And so we believe it is all right -- sort of get people to do.
So we need more Bradford coming out of these people have been.
What ever -- big -- 323 is is writing an and he says colleges have become more of the business instead of a place for higher education what would -- that.

Interpersonal skills must be honed in a Petri dish of experience.
Vice warrants would you give to kids in college to ensure that they -- future success in there professional careers.
I would ripoff fourth effort that before about these other kind of guilty plea deal well rounded -- but after that we -- assumption on several different -- So if you're making -- -- Take a dramatic court could take -- course we have to do the right they needed the public speaking would be nice.
On the flip side that it could -- united major victory victory -- an economic about the matter.
Do you know that that what's gone global.
You have to feel more rounded person that created -- need a variety of -- field.

Advanced get -- need to go -- Steve told back with in advisor consulting.
Is joining us now.
On Skype Steve Heidi you.
-- -- -- -- Got a very good -- and other Generation -- right born in the late seventies early eighties again.
I guess you are so let's talk about me not kidding so yeah.
-- -- -- This age group this generation is the new business leaders on their way to doing something great new job creators the -- inventors.
Are some of did she can't say you -- weak at best line to get where we need to go.
Well first of all -- I.
Thank -- and yet just kind of give -- a big picture and.
-- -- -- I was born into a dangerous thing world to say at least Adam why change a lot of upheaval both culturally and economically.
I think it -- it is is that.
Jan wires having -- it -- such as yourself -- -- that are grown up with technology and that means they're very well suited for the digital age.
On the other hand technology is also brought -- Some -- saying.
This much information and communication.
Summit complexity in this world sidekick that's the challenge.
So and in terms.
Kind of my advice for gen Y and some of the things that they -- -- to view.
Groom themselves if you will Libyan leaders of tomorrow.
The first line.
Is -- taking big risks.
Now I I can't overemphasize.
If you look at the Mark Zuckerberg is -- little world -- Richard Branson and Steve Jobs.
These people went out on a limb to make their way in the world they need -- fearless.
They jump in the deep end of the whole late -- -- way.
And a frankly the you know biggest mistake at the -- and they're young is not that is that if and adopted -- It's absolutely critical that we hear about when you're young because when he -- you can afford it.
Frankly for -- for a lot of -- lot of big enough with the war.
Steve I -- so you're saying and I agree with you.
However there's only one Mark Zuckerberg there's only one Steve Jobs many people might not be so aspiring.
They want a regular job they want a secure job they're fine being middle class.
They just don't innately have those aspirations.
But it seems like the safety net.
Or the mechanisms that provided them with that sort of job doesn't exist anymore.
I feel like we're telling everybody taken big risk so you can be the next Steve Jobs or else.
-- -- -- Well another good example.
Really good example for myself.
Now -- holidays people.
And I grew up and lower middle class families so -- put -- up with a big company right out of school and -- They groomed me for -- Great bill.
But ultimately -- got to the Silicon Valley and I started going smaller companies -- -- program.
You know one thing was put -- I was not a Mark Zuckerberg but I did quite well -- -- So there's -- while the way it is.
I think the book wait.
Young people today.
Yeah that they had it not there so.
He got it broke -- -- little.
-- things are changing so much so the segment before you were talking about the value of college.
Keep and that art is the place where anybody if they -- -- to get a college degree and now people -- saying we don't even know if it's worth -- I just like society has radically change the Internet has taken over.
Things are multinational.
Cross border anybody can do any sane people in multiple jobs computers replacing people.
We've lost real skills interpersonal skills some of us on how to write because -- Chad does everything for us says is different.
And not so worried that Generation Y.
un whatever they called the generation after Generation -- that's the generation -- worry about.
So bad that I yeah I believe how great I think we're in trouble -- they run out of water.
I brought you divide that up -- a lot of yeah they're definitely a lot of challenges have been the day.
What they wanted to wait I liked the look at.
You know believe I think -- I think.
Whoever that -- when you get -- Well that they want to get out of school regret it now and I did -- about -- -- quietly go out -- -- big big world the you make your mark.
I think very very -- see the water do it all -- block.
And I think that.
That's the you know that's -- something that young people need to worry about a bit because.
You know when you and we'll gratification.
Today than not that you all right and it did not added that it generated happening in the holy bull by the architect my inbox.
Be get on winner.
And see what's going on while.
I called the -- he called -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- We got -- look at life as.
A lot of people they like this sort I have to provide the law well a lot of -- -- -- off.
Yeah I think you know why would be great for their -- -- about it -- your goals are.
Big -- stated -- didn't think about it who -- they -- -- materialized.
And I feel bad.
What will you do what we've got into the big world we want to make it going really -- we want well -- think that we want it now.
And then -- ought to move.
And that's a bit of a problem because.
You know I think that is only one -- up over the one with the brand.
But that the -- the video entrepreneurial generated.
The what made about them going.
Bad at the end of the day I prefer.
You know one of the factors that -- -- that -- his ability to focus on what they're doing and not the and then the country that.
Another that is the challenge for everybody.
A lot more.
You know my my advice.
-- -- -- -- -- -- I don't take a long term view that I look at the bit.
Yeah nice marathon not a sprint you know nonstop politics and I and I don't expect you to -- but I did want to ask you question because she brought up on different hours and and small businesses essentially.
They're the backbone of the economy however -- you'd think.
The business environments set up by Washington currently is favorable to them.
Yeah that is the bigger -- -- I don't.
I think we have.
Pretty tough situation the day or.
-- -- dollar battling benefit for small business daughter for entrepreneur.
But -- I don't think walking there.
Doing my -- -- that our eyes I've got -- -- very I've worked with big companies -- -- -- company.
I've -- to be like the and currently on the -- They now I'm not happy with what's going.
-- the -- pray that you they're going up.
I did the regulations.
Are out of the ball and they could -- piling on more and more and more every year.
Can't sell -- now I think I think well why -- -- -- the figure doll I think -- Despite everything that -- functional somebody.
Did I feel locked up I think Washington is way more than Bob Hope that any of -- Steve -- -- and thank -- for year here and let your website we'll put on the screen now.
In advisor dot net.
And thank you for coming on and my interpretation of what you absolutely said was that the economy is sweating because it's running on a treadmill.
But it's ending up in the exact same spot that's why -- recovery has been so -- Steve thank you.
We -- -- war and now we have doctor would -- Michael Woodward.
We're talking revenue -- parenting from the office because so many families have tight budgets.
So many women quite frankly don't want to give up their jobs because at a new job as a mother so we're seeing more more people parent.
From the office there are things you should know to do and not to -- Doctor woody thanks for coming on.
Break them down.
They -- could be here especially from my Amy why I -- am here at that.
Actually from my fortieth birthday has done here for vacation but you know I I willingly came in to help -- -- week does 40 what generation -- -- I would be generation acts.
A pack -- acts online and now there's disease we -- bout -- nothing minutes ago.
Already so yeah I think from the office what is that the biggest tip that you can give working parents out there.
Well I think the first thing we have to think about.
Is it to -- as the conversation is.
It's about values what do we value as a society and particularly employers and parents because.
Right now we're seventeenth in the world when it comes to education and I think what -- ways to solve that.
Is to get parents more involved now the problem is like you said and talking to your previous guess is that.
-- tough economic times people having to work -- even to make lots and companies are running leaner so.
We have a fundamental disconnect between the amount of time parents have because they're working more.
And their ability to actually parent their kids a recent survey from flex jobs found that.
That you 96%.
Of parents who took the survey said that.
Traditional work schedules are really interfering with their ability to parent their kids and help brazen and be involved in their education so.
Are -- parenting from the office yes and is that causing some trouble absolutely.
And there are things that we can think about doing around that but I think first all really need to consider that question of how can we create more flexible type work arrangements.
So that we can allow parents this opportunity to raise the next generation of workers.
And how do we do that -- -- set up the the flexible situation that's good for you no good for your kids -- and I ended for your employer.
Yet because they get a straight when you have parents in the office some of the challenges are they gonna have to be taking calls right we're dealing with situations with their kids -- Thank you mention there are some do's and don'ts when -- -- officer or some challenges so you've got the parent constantly answering the phone.
Dealing with a parenting issue or child or even caregivers calling them.
So if if they -- out of more flexible opportunity you arrangement they -- you may build a mitigate that a little bit so consider this in the survey they found it.
Apparent today that service said that dean missed work -- -- that call in sick because of a child care issue 81%.
I had to miss work because of some kind of child event something -- to go do it -- your graduation or some kind of school play.
So if employers offered more flexible arrangements whether it's telecommuting compressed work week.
Part time schedules different types of hourly shifts.
You can help make sure that parents could still be there -- work when they need to be and also be there for their kids so I think that's one thing to consider and I always encouraged both.
Employers and employees who are parents actually not be afraid to ask to ask their employer asked their boss hey you know like.
I'm out of a little bit of trouble working with the schedule -- my child attorneys are there things that I can do -- we can work out.
So that I can still be here meet your needs 'cause I'm getting paid to work.
But also meet the needs of my kids -- that's something that's important and it's of value was apparent.
I would be scared and I can imagine so many parents are scared to do that because you could have a very welcoming.
Workplace and employer but in other cases that -- could just say I don't -- this I could find someone who doesn't have these issues.
So do we know.
The percent -- or or that their business climate how supportive it is of these arrangements.
Often than not it is supported an -- you have to consider a lot of times your boss.
Or your boss's boss are probably parents to.
-- now -- if you have children and you might wanna cut up Tug at their heart strings that that even if they're the work obsessive workaholic.
Compulsive always in the office.
Dinner always take that out and other people expect that of other folks -- -- and as we make that mistake that feeling like.
Someone who has to be -- all time once or else to do the same sometimes it is sometimes they don't you know every situation is different you have to feel it out but.
I'll tell you right now a lot of companies actually have policies around this and -- work -- policies and so.
At least take a look into what they offer the opportunity to lord if you don't ask.
You're not gonna know.
-- -- if it is a challenge for you you have to at least take a staff about it or try and a lot of these companies.
They want to be known for -- see you that when it comes to best places to work out usually part of what gets the right there is because of flexible arrangements.
Yet know especially you in his -- age you have to imagine more companies that have something.
India -- Emanuel about how to deal with these issues there are some don'ts for -- -- parenting from the office I'm disgusted I'm really quickly.
Don't I don't think you're the only one in the -- Don't be afraid to settle the -- -- -- tonight he just said.
And being Constant Contact with your child -- caregivers to just -- right that everything's -- at home.
Hit haven well that's his opinion is the.
They hit yet.
You know there's a those folks you see that constantly every five or ten minutes -- caregivers giving them -- call our kids get in the McCall.
That can be incredibly disruptive to you as an individual to people in your offices some of Diop to set some boundaries.
Think that's important do -- when it comes to dealing with that don't being in the Constant Contact it's yet to let go pull back a little bit of that space to work.
Doctor -- happy birthday T you enjoy it it's a dateline at your article is currently up on our website foxbusiness.com.

We must have health care but not child care this looks like another crisis -- this administration.
And big Linear thoughts on parenting from the office I know some folks have no choice but that doesn't even sound good.
To me anyway.
