The jobs of the future to lead the world of work
Just a few decades ago, the professional profiles that companies are asking for today neither existed nor could be imagined. But, if we look to the future, what are the jobs that will be the ones that will stand out in the labour market? Agent 11Onze Mireia Sitjà takes a look at the five CVs that will set the trend.
If you don’t know how to focus your professional career or if you want to make a change in your CV, these five professions may give you some clues. On the one hand, technology workers and experts in the digital world will stand out and, on the other, in a changing labour market, experts and trainers will be needed to guide us.
- Programmer, analyst or designer of the internet of things. When we talk about the internet of things, we are referring to all those technological devices that, for one reason or another, work thanks to the network: from mobile phones or computers, of course, to fridges or microwaves.
- Nanotech. Nanotechnology may sound like science fiction, but it has been around for a long time and will be even more present in the coming years. Experts believe that it will be the medical field in particular that will need the most nanotechs. Specifically, the profile of the nanomedic, a combination of engineer and doctor, will be needed.
- 3D printer. It seemed pure fantasy when it was born just over a decade ago. Even so, in the next few years 3D printing will be essential for all types of industrial design, because it is at the base of an unstoppable process of automation and robotisation.
- Consultants and labour representatives. As jobs will no longer be as stable as they were twenty years ago, or even before the pandemic, and companies are likely to rely on project-based recruitment, we will increasingly need the support of legal experts to advise us and help us keep our accounts, and also to promote our CV where it is in our best interest.
- Independent teachers and trainers. To build a good career path, education is essential. However, some experts point out that, in 20 years’ time, young people will no longer be looking for a university degree as we know it today, but that everyone will be building their own studies independently and according to their own interests. It is therefore likely that there will be an increasing need for independent and reputable online trainers in a specific field, not tied to any centre or company, who adapt their classes to the demand of students.
