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 smashing traditional career narratives and upgrading career eduction at FutureMe School. I founded FutureMe School to change the way we talk about careers and prepare people for jobs that don’t exist yet.
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. I teach professionals how to upskill and remain relevant in a rapidly changing work environment. I’m changing old-school career advice and delivering a whole new way of wrangling ambiguous career paths.
As I build the future of career education at FutureMe School, I teach, speak, and write a lot. Here’s what I’m working on.
- I deliver interactive workshops for university alumni and mid-career professionals on how to build soft skills that build influence in the workplace
- I teach globally mobile people how to build global careers
- I train US career services departments on how to adapt to international students needs
- I’m writing two e-books. The first is on international student careers, to be released in July 2018. They next is on the future of work, for release in Fall 2018.
- I test and design AI conversations for chatbots.
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 education and new models of cross-cultural engagement
- International student mobility, global talent, and international alumni engagement
- The future of higher education and who’s doing it well
- Online education, MOOCs, blended-learning, and experiential learning
- The future of work as it relates to retraining and upskilling employees
- Partnering with AI or cognitive tools as part of your daily job
- Building AI/ML tools that change/will change the way we work
- Upskilling and hybrid jobs
