Are teenage dreams so hard to beat? We are constantly reading news articles stating how important it is for people to focus more on technology-related jobs and careers as the World Economic Forum predicts that technology will create more than a quarter of all jobs in newly emerging professions over the coming years. 

However this latest study from The OECD shows the teenagers are still more interested in targeting more traditional roles - a trend that worryingly becomes even more apparent when you factor in the gender gap when it comes to job sector choices, and the inherent impact that has on salary aspirations for men and women.

Clearly more still needs to be done to encourage the youth of today to seriously consider STEM roles as viable and compelling alternatives to becoming lawyers, doctors - or film stars.
