Very few of us hold jobs that line up directly with our past experiences or what we studied in college. Take TED Resident Jason Shen; he studied biology but later became a product manager at a tech company. In this quick, insightful talk about human potential, Shen shares some new thinking on how job seekers can make themselves more attractive -- and why employers should look for ability over credentials.

As someone who is working to decrease youth unemployment, I found Jason's message to be more relevant than ever. Traditional education is no longer adequate​ nor necessary to get a job in this age. Young people and employers need to update their view about hiring and getting hired.
