The issue of jobs for the future is generally always high on the agenda of major socio-economic and political debates. Year after year, reports come out about those jobs that are definitely tending to disappear, perhaps sooner than we might imagine. The World Economic Forum (WEF) released one of these reports and it is expected that by 2022, 75 million jobs will no longer exist in 20 major economies.
According to some technology companies, the problem that is currently evident is that they have vacancies, but are not filling them because people do not have the relevant skills. Because, definitely in an era of technological openness the academic degree is not everything, as the demand for skills is increasing significantly.
It is for this reason that the US multinational Cognizant has proposed the jobs of the future, to be more precise in 2029:
“In that report, we proposed some jobs of the future that will emerge in the world of artificial intelligence, automation, algorithms, bots, and big data.”
