The landscape of the labor market is completely changing due to the pandemic, but also to the rapid technological developments in various fields, from medicine to space exploration.
In fact, according to a recent CNBC survey, the feature of the new era will be the creation of more and more jobs in emerging and developing professions, which (at least in the USA), within the next ten years are expected to be in great demand with the publication stating that in some cases not even a university degree is required.
And it’s not just CNBC research that points in this direction: More than 100 million workers in 8 countries alone may need to change jobs by 2030, according to a recent McKinsey report.
The study claims that the coronavirus pandemic has accelerated technological transformation so much that 12% more people than expected than before the crisis they may need to change jobs by the end of the decade.

Professions beyond imagination
One is also interesting a recent Bank of America report entitled “Future of Work”, which put her imagination to work and went one step further: in the creation of new future professions on the occasion of his findings World Economic Forum (WEF) which showed that almost two thirds of children starting school will work in jobs that have not yet been conceived.
Its strategic analyst Bank of America, Felix Tran, who was the lead author of the report, cites some examples of possible future jobs.
Space guide: The commercialization of space for tourism purposes has accelerated and many citizens want to fly into space and this is something that guides need for safety reasons.
Leisure designer: The WEF data reported in the report showed that people thanks to machines and automation could spend less time on routine tasks until 2025, such as e.g. housework. And as people will have more free time for recreation, they will also need a specialist who could provide personalized organization services for this free time.
Meat scientist produced in a 3D laboratory: As the laboratory-created Eat Just chicken was the first in the world to be approved for sale in Singapore in December 2020, and as this is already a dietary trend (so we are not even talking about the future), then food experts may need to adapt even more to this idea.
Virtual Reality Influencer: Augmented and virtual reality further expand this existing role by making social media work in 3D.
Agricultural Reconstruction Specialist: The use of agricultural land and forestry for carbon capture is one way to minimize emissions, so there should be workers in the future who can plan how to reuse the land.
Privacy Manager: Personal data is increasingly at risk of being attacked by cyberspace, so there should be experts in preventing such attacks.
