When we talk about the impact of the Internet and Social Media on future jobs, it is important to bring youth to the center of the discussion, young people will live the future of work and can contribute to shaping it. What do young people think about the impact of the Social Media on employment? How do they see themselves in this scenario? What tools are necessary to take full advantage of the opportunities that the Social Media offers them? These will be some of the questions to be addressed at the speakeasy session.

Social Media platforms are replete with people who make it their life work to do the exceptional.
