The high demand jobs of the future guide.
Looking at well-earning and high demand jobs of the future, that will enjoy healthy employment growth in the next ten years, we see the birth of a new job market while many jobs will also disappear.
One thing in the job market is clear: jobs will either be secure and in good demand, or disappear in the next 10 years.
This topic affects people in very predictable ways, and many of us immediately think of automation and artificial intelligence (AI) as a villain to blame when considering why jobs will disappear.
While this is a reasonable thought, one must also consider that the process of automation and AI adds massively to the success of the business and while economies grow, humans are needed to fill many roles and due to automation and AI, they are capable of working more effectively. Companies that grow financially, plus workers that operate more efficiently, result in raised salaries plus further consumption and economic growth .
New opportunities are born directly as a result of AI and many positions are brought about by automation, and sectors created because of AI!
AI is a term used to describe when machines are programmed to mimic actions of humans and reason with human intelligence, such as Chatbots, robotic vacuum cleaners and self-driving vehicles, to name a few. We are often suspicious of AI, because they threatened, or replaced, the security of the previous jobs sectors.
The good news is that the AI professional job sector is actually full of high demand and high-paying career opportunities, and it is poised to enjoy healthy employment growth. These jobs will be very secure and they will firmly stay off the list of jobs that will disappear in the next decade.
Depending on your interest, experience and education, the AI job market offers a variety of different roles and responsibilities.
However, certain job fields will be very difficult to replace by automation or AI. Where the human touch is essential, such as early childhood education, we still need people dealing with people.
The future will see both tech-savvy and “human touch” jobs in high demand.
