About

Hey there. I’m Nicolle and I’m obsessed with jobs and the skills needed to get them. I’m the one at the party who legitimately wants to know what you do.

I’m obsessed with the future of work but not in the OMFG-the-robots-are coming-to-take-our-jobs way. Instead I explore how we partner and adapt when algorithms are our coworkers. Two years ago I left my job as Associate Director of Career Services at Yale School of Management to change the way we prepare people for the future of work. Traditional career advice is outdated. I’m upgrading it for the new world of work.

Now I teach professionals how to reskill and remain relevant in a rapidly changing work environment. I’m challenging old-school career advice and delivering a new way to wrangle ambiguous career paths.

I teach, speak, and write a lot. Here’s what I’m working on in 2019.

This blog is a parking space on all things related to my work. It’s part reflection, part framework, part idea parking, part daily writing practice, part gif party, and part accountability. It’s a lot of parts.

The best professional advice I ever received was to always say yes to a conversation. Subjects I love to exchange ideas on:

  • International student and global talent mobility
  • The future of higher education and who’s doing it well
  • Online education, MOOCs, and bootcamp education models
  • The future of work as it relates to retraining and reskilling employees
  • Using AI and cognitive platforms in your job
  • Building AI/ML tools that change the way we work
  • Upskilling and hybrid jobs

You can find me on LinkedIn and Twitter.
