Millennial vs. Baby Boomer: Who in the workforce can benefit more from the rapidly changing technology affecting virtually and every occupation? Who should be first in line for those “jobs of the future” that are really here today? Who’s the preferred candidate? Is it you, the Boomer, or is it the kid half your age? Believe it or not, it’s you.

Join PSGMC at 9:30 am on Wednesday, March 16, at the Parsippany-Troy Hills Library, to hear Eli Amdur talk about those jobs – what and where they are (or will be) – and how you can position yourself, both earlier and better, for them – because you have one quality the youngster doesn’t have – and plenty of other skills as well.

Don’t think you can’t or shouldn’t go after those jobs of the future. They can be yours if you want them and if you’ll do the one thing you need to do.

With 40+ years’ national and international business experience, Eli Amdur works in both the corporate and academic worlds. He is a Career Coach, Journalist, Professor, and Futurist. As Senior Coach and Advisor at Amdur Coaching and Advisory Group, LLC, Eli analyzes, writes and speaks on job market issues, and has authored the weekly Career Coach column for North Jersey Media Group since 2003. His first book, It’s Not So Far From Here To There: The thinking person’s guide to a well-managed career, went through four printings. He’s thinking about his second book.

Aside from providing individual coaching, Eli also advises corporate leaders on matters of leadership, organizational culture, team building, creative thinking, and effective communication. You can view his recent TEDx Talk – “The World in 2050: Are you ready?” – on YouTube (enter “Eli Amdur” and then click on “The World in 2050”).

At Fairleigh Dickinson University – where he received the 2007 Faculty Member of the Year Award; the 2010 Stratis Castle Award for lifetime dedication, service, and contribution to FDU; the 2013 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Medal of Honor; and the 2014 Presidential Citation – he is Adjunct Professor of two graduate-level leadership courses since 2003.
