NEW! C-VILLE COVER STORY: The work of the future

Meet your jobs of the future, Charlottesville.  This week Will Goldsmith tackles the Recession-worthy crystal ball question: What will the next generation of jobs look like? Though the situation in Charlottesville fares well compared to elsewhere in the country, unemployment nonetheless exceeds 5 percent. There’s little sign of a middle class miracle coming, either.   Indeed, a complex weave of education issues, city-county rivalry, declining industry, and even sprawl affects the local jobs scene. You’re well advised to keep your pencil sharpened and your skill set current. Read this week’s cover story here, and don’t forget to leave comments.
