This is what we do know. There has been disruption within jobs. Jobs, which we considered as secure 10 years ago, are almost redundant. Some jobs that we did not even dream about 10 years ago, are taught in university. Who would think that one could be a Social Media Manager?
Although Digital Technology has disrupted jobs, it has also offered us opportunities to diversify our skills into a more niche field. One skill we can agree with is that collaboration is needed now and in the future.
We know that not all kids will be coders. However, knowing how coding works helps, especially in the formation of an app such as Uber, is important? The background of this apps stems from people who had a range of skills and teamed up to create a technology that will disrupt transportation as we know it.
So What Will Future Jobs Look Like?
Because we have seen a disruption in the job market, we know that any future job is possible. Examples could be:
- Robotics Surgical Engineer
- Remote Transport Operator
- Virtual Educational Specialist
How Do We Prepare for This Type of Future?
What we know is that technology is constantly evolving. Therefore knowing a ranging of technology skills is vital. However, primary to this is having skills that allows us to be adaptable, solve problems quickly, can Fail Fast (Flearn), collaborate or present (only to name a few), is vital. We call these soft skills that fall within our Life, Literacy and Learning Skills.
