About The Wiley Future Skills Guide

Students are now, more than ever, uncertain about what their future holds, and what the future workplace will look like. What may be regarded as essential skills for a job now, may be outdated when they graduate in three years’ time.

In 2019, Wiley asked over 3,000 Australian and New Zealand university students to share their greatest concerns and priorities. 89% of students stated they prioritised gaining both knowledge and career-relevant skills during their study(1). With this in mind, we developed the Wiley Future Skills Guide.

Provided for free with select new Wiley titles, it is the ultimate career-ready playbook, covering seven essential generalist skills of critical importance to all students, regardless of the course or career they pursue.

Each section includes a collection of recommendations and industry insights from a thought-leading team. These invaluable and practical insights range from: the future of work, technology, wellbeing, social intelligence, ethics, skills and development, and design thinking, and will help students understand the core skills they need to develop from day one of their first year.
