Future Jobs

Future Jobs

What is my future job?

We are all looking forward finding or inventing a job in our future. So, how do we want our future job to look like?

  • Do we want to work in an interesting industry?
  • Do we want attractive jobs with high pay and prestige?
  • Do we want to have flexible work hours or a safe and secure job for the future?

Technology, Markets and Business Models affect the jobs available.

This is important for most industries and disciplines, where rapid changes in society mean that existing jobs become outdated or new types of jobs are created. We need to be aware of what opportunities we have and how we can make a difference to industries and the society.
