Professional foresight is on the rise. More people are being paid to create, predict, and manage the future in more exciting ways around the world today than ever before. Through the Foresight Education and Research Network (FERN), a professional network working to improve global foresight education, training, and careers, we have just written a careers guide for foresight professionals.
The Foresight Guide is the first-ever guide focused on advancing the careers of foresight professional, those who are paid, at least in part, to help others look to and analyze the future. This includes all those who have degrees from one of the twenty-two MS and PhD programs in foresight around the world, those who have taken foresight classes in the university, those who have taken a foresight certificate program, and those who are self-taught, and are seeking greater success as a foresight professional.
The presentation also focuses on FERN - how we connect individuals online and through social media to keep awareness of opportunities and educational resources in the community.
