FYPC054: Alexandra Levit, International Bestselling Author and CEO

Find Your Passion Career Podcast

Alexandra Levit is the author of the international bestseller They Don’t Teach Corporate in College: A Twenty-Something’s Guide to the Business World. Her latest book Humanity Works reveals what the 'robot takeover' will really look like, helping you prepare for the possibilities of the future. She is an influential thought leader on career and workforce trends who has been instrumental in developing and promoting proprietary research on the future of work, the millennial generation, gender differences and bias, and the skills gap. Alexandra’s goal is to prepare organizations and their employees to be competitive and marketable in the future business world. Back in January of 2020, how many of us could honestly have foreseen remote work being on the horizon? Alexandra did. A pandemic, and all the workplace transitions that came with it, was the furthest thing from everyone’s minds. But not hers. “Remote work was an example of a trend that I’ve been looking at for about 10 years where I knew that this was going to take off eventually.” As a work futurist and an avid researcher, Alexandra saw the inevitable change in the status quo, and prepared for it. She saw past the immediate panic over transitioning to online and envisions the natural next step in business progression: hybrid workplaces.
