Where are really the so-called jobs of the future?
Thursday, 08 November 2012
Jobs seekers, - University graduates, and laid-off workers are roaming
around looking for work but employers say they are finding it hard to
recruit the right skills. Job seekers are tired of looking for work as
politicians talk of the jobs of the future. Which are the so-called
jobs of the future?
In Sweden recently, layoffs have been on the increase and a country
with already a very high level of unemployment, 7.5 percent, the
Swedish labour market is now flooded with unemployment. As more
unemployed Swedes are outsources to Norway, some industries are strong
and are seeking some specific types of skills that are said to be in
Some of these skills are found in the health care, IT industry and mining industrial sectors, according to some analysts.
The IT industry is believed to be continuously growing creating new
areas of skills that demand more skills. It is also noted that the
sector has become more complex and demand people with deeper knowledge
of how the internet and related network works. With increased
globalisation, the market place in everywhere and customers are found
everywhere so skills that make products easy to be sold in any part of
the world are in great demand. SEO and the use of various interne
interactive systems and those that integrate the social media in
various plate forms are in high demand.
With the threat of fraud and hacking threats, skills for effective network optimisations are also in demand.
Assuming that growth in Asia will continue, mining boom is expected to
pick up again. So related industries such as steel and engineering
industry will see increase demand for skills in the coming years. One
common agreement after the US election is that with the re-election of
Barack Obama, there is the expectation that the market would become
stable some Obama talk more about peace. As such increase investment in
infrastructure development would be expected in various countries
around the work and Asia in particular.
Health care and education are also seen as areas where there will be
continued increase in jobs creation, but there is expected to be a
shift from public to private.
While the public sector is primarily going to cover the basic needs,
more opportunities will be for private players in these industries in
the coming years.
In the longer term, say by 2050, analysts believe that the lack of oil
will lead to an energy crisis. More expensive transportation will
increase the demand for locally produced food. Even local energy will
be demanded increasingly. Oil will be replaced with new liquid fuels,
including wood as raw material.
More occupations in which there will be scarcity of skill in the future
include data technicians, preschool teachers, special education
teachers, various forms of engineers, specially trained nurses and
doctors and the like.
