Upskills yourself for Jobs of the Future not Past
“Young people need the skills and experience for jobs of the future, not the past”
The world of work is changing, influenced by technology and changes in global economies. A recent report has warned that young people will be most strongly affected by these changes.
The report identified three key trends that will shape the future of work, three ways that new opportunities are emerging, and three significant risks.
Automation, as machines increasingly perform tasks that were once done by humans
Globalisation, as goods and services are traded across international boundaries more freely
Collaboration, as technology enables cooperation and collaboration
-Greater unemployment as jobs are lost or automated, particularly at the entry and low-skilled levels
-Growing inequality between skilled and unskilled workers
