FUTURE JOBS ARE FAR FROM SIMPLE
GEE, I felt old when I read the press release from
about top jobs of the future. According to the spin, the
is a go-to publication for high school students, teachers and parents, outlining career opportunities and undergraduate courses in science, IT and engineering. It suggested the next wave of job opportunities could be for dimensional time and space experts or digital architects, due to the surge in popularity of virtual reality. Increased technology will create roles such as e-waste managers, drone data analysts and cyber police. Population growth will result in the need for jobs such as global farmers. And ageing savants or nano medics will play an important role in managing our ageing population. I do not have any understanding of what most of those jobs entail but it seems to raise the spectre of even more technological domination. It made me yearn for a simpler time.
