“What job do you do?” is a popular small talk question. At the moment, we usually know what people are talking about when we hear their answer. We’ve already got used to titles such as “Facilities Manager”, “System Engineer” or “Social Media Specialist”. But in the future, we could hear totally different job titles, because digitization and automation will create new jobs.
Digitization: what job do you do?
Have you ever heard of a “Cryptocurrency Jedi”, “Artificial Intelligence Storyteller” or “Head of Robotic Workforce”? Neither have we. But we can imagine these kinds of careers may exist one day. Digitization will create new jobs in all fields of work. But lateral thinkers are required. Are you ready?
Job market: digitization seeks lateral thinkers
What these professions will be called is still uncertain. But what we can anticipate is that the new jobs will be designed for lateral thinkers. For people who are open to new experiences and who know how to expertly apply their skills and strengths to tackling digitization and new technologies. And this is exactly why we can imagine a “Cryptocurrency Jedi”, a white knight in the cryptocurrency banking sector. Or an “Artificial Intelligence Storyteller” who recounts his marketing stories with the help of artificial intelligence. Or the “Head of Robotic Workforce” who uses digitization in human resources to automate searching for the most suitable candidates.
