Future-Jobs

Future generations are currently facing the frustration of preparing for careers that could not even exist yet. Selecting a college major is difficult enough without adding the possibility that many of the jobs in specific fields will soon be eliminated due to technology. Experts estimate that 65-percent of kids in the next generation will have jobs that are not even created yet.

In addition to seeing new jobs in the future, many old jobs will also be obsoleted, being replaced by robots or software automation. Although the idea of losing a job to a robot is unsettling, not every professional is affected. A recent article from The Economist reviewed the probability of certain jobs remaining the future, many of which are high-paying. The most likely to be eliminated include, accountants/auditors, telemarketers, technical writers, word processors, real estate agents and retail salespersons.

Therefore, what new jobs will be created to replace the obsolete? The following is a list of 10 future technology jobs that will exist in 10 years but do not exist now.

With the continued popularity of drones, in the future there will be drones for everything including delivery services, forensics and filming. Once drones take over the world, there will be a great need for commercial civilian drone operators. This will require a pilot’s license and additional extensive training and experience. In the next decade or two, it will not be uncommon to see major delivery airlines using near-pilotless airplanes. Amazon has already proposed the idea of using drones for local deliveries.

Think about it, after decades of improving the technology, people still are unable to setup a new TV. There will be a huge market for the home automation contractor which will require technical training on each product.

Media Remixer

Forget about DJ’s and VJ’s, the future will soon be about media remixers who mash-up a variety of past and present audio and video media to develop incredible experiences for weddings, restaurants, schools, artists and brands. The best way to envision this type of position is virtual reality meeting a nightclub with a splash of vertigo. The required skill set includes graphic design and audio engineering.

Organ Harvester

There are currently several labs around the world that can grow human organs in a simple petri dish. Eventually technology will become commercially available and there will be a need for an organ harvester to plant and then harvest the organs prior to them being implanted by robot-surgeons. These positions will require biology and chemistry backgrounds.

Personal Web Manager

Rewilder

Natural landscapes continue to disappear across the globe as a result of overdevelopment, natural disaster and industrial farming.
