Jobs for the next generation + Tinkercademy Microcamp Giveaway

What do you want to be went you grow up?

During my time, it was the norm for parents to tell the kids to aim to be a doctor, lawyer or pilot.
As generations passed, the jobs that parents are channeling their children to had changed. With technological advancement, there will be jobs that will become obsolete with new careers replacing it.

The hip word in today's society is disruptive technology. In the future , this disruptive technology will probably be the norm. Self driven cars could take over Uber jobs, financial advisors will be phase out by Fintech, doctors will be replaced by computer analysis. Repetitive jobs will probably be taken over by robots.

So what will be the hot jobs for the future?

Here is a look into the crystal ball.

Artificial Intelligence (AI)

AI is projected to be the next big thing for the past few years. With prototypes such as Sophia getting humanised, it may be just a matter of time AI to be applied in our daily lives. Computing skills and coding are essential tools to master in time to come.

Going hand in hand with AI, it robotics. AI provides the tool to communicate while Robotics integrate it to human society. Robotics can also stand on its own , replacing humans in certain roles or job functions.

Someone still has to build the robots, so get equipped with the necessary coding skills to make Robotics work for society.

To build a robot, you need more than coding skills. Engineers are necessary to bring your vision to life. With that thought, mechanical engineers will most likely be a sought after role in the future.

Lifestyle Planners

With robots taking over the world, it may lead to the possibility of everyone's dream job come true... A 3 day week job.

With that in mind, it would probably mean more time for one to enjoy life. Lifestyle Planners would be on the rise to cater to the new group of workers. One that has more time to play than to work.

Digital Channel Entrepreneurs

Have you seen the demise of printed media recently. This would probably be the start of the digital revolution. The latest news and review are available online and at your fingertips. With more people accessing news using their phones instead of the newspaper, the digital space will be a source of information and income.

Set up your own website, youtube channel or blog. The successful ones will probably make a decent income from their digital channels.

Educators are equally important in the future as it is now. With knowledge, we cannot keep abreast of the developments around the world. It is important to keep upgrading our skill sets to get ready for the jobs for the next generation.
