The jobs of the fu­ture – a trip around the world in pic­tures.


Ms. Lv, what do you do? I shoot aerial videos for our mar­ket­ing cam­paigns, give the de­vel­op­ment team feed­back and teach peo­ple how to fly drones. What do you love about your job? I travel all over the world and film on location in places that I never dared dream of! How did you get this job? I came across DJI, the world’s largest drone man­u­fac­turer, at a re­cruit­ing event. They in­vited me to visit their head­quar­ters in Shen­zhen. I liked the com­pany cul­ture. My skills and po­ten­tial were more im­por­tant than my age, ex­pe­ri­ence or what I stud­ied in school. And Shen­zhen is full of young peo­ple who are fight­ing to re­al­ize their dreams. What else would you like to ac­com­plish? I’d like to show even more peo­ple what it means to see the world from a new per­spec­tive. What was your dream job as a kid? A teacher, and I ended up be­com­ing one in a way. What will you be do­ing in 20 years? Maybe I’ll be a free­lance aerial pho­tog­ra­pher, al­ways on the look­out for the world’s most beau­ti­ful places.

Mr. Ra­ga­van, what do you do? I de­liver food take­out or­ders. You can use the Swiggy app to or­der your fa­vorite food from your fa­vorite restau­rant and we will pick it up for you. You can use it to track where I am at any time, like with Uber. What do you love about your job? The free­dom and flex­i­bil­ity – I work when and where I want to. The pay is good and I can earn ex­tra if I do an ex­cel­lent job. How did you get this job? I worked for a dif­fer­ent de­liv­ery ser­vice and a friend re­ferred me to Swiggy. What else would you like to ac­com­plish? I want to be the depart­ment man­ager.

On the job since: 2015 Ed­u­ca­tion: Pri­mary school
