Exploring This Job

There are many ways to learn about the work of futurists. First, talk to futurists about their careers. Many futurists will have a unique story about how they broke into the field and turned a love of strategic foresight into a career. You can find potential information interviewees by looking over the member list ( of the World Future Society. The society also offers an “aspiring futurist” membership category for those who are enrolled in degree programs full-time and/or under age 25. Although it’s a bit costly ($100/year), membership will provide you with a lot of opportunities to interact with futurists online and via the society’s conferences and networking events. Members can also access past issues of The Futurist, which was published from 1967 through Summer 2015.
