    useful to learn career skills

    20-3) Many students worry about choosing what type of work they want to do when they graduateit seems to be a once-in-a-lifetime, binding decision.
    But this is, for most people, not true. The world of employment is now so unstable that most of us can expect to have to change employers and to do different jobs
    in our working lives. Rather than having a
    crystal ball telling you what to bewhen you graduate, it would be much more useful to learn career skills
    which will see you through an increasingly unpredictable working life. The more you know about career choice and job-hunting, the more likely you are
    to find your own preferred way.


    Does this "career skills" mean 1 or 2?
    1. To find out the flow of career change and employment market change, thus acquiring how to adjust to any possible job change.
    2. To learn many career skills like passing many license tests or studying many skills by oneself or at an academy.

    Hello, keannu.

    I think the options are both possible - they make sense in the context. However, all we know from the text you provided is that they're the career skills which will see you through an increasingly unpredictable working life. The writer doesn't give us more specific information about those skills.
