Careers Of The Future

Apprenticeship, TAFE and university courses will evolve and develop as technology and our society evolves. The future is very bright and the world is certainly your oyster!

The Canadian Scholarship Trust Plan and foresight strategists recently came up with descriptions of jobs that may exist in 2030. Apart from jobs that haven’t been invented yet, they have predicted what jobs may be like for occupations such as teaching, plumbing, etc. Click here to read more.

Interesting job titles include:

  • Nostalgist
  • Telesurgeon
  • Rewilder
  • Simplicity Expert
  • End of Life Therapist

Futurist Morris Miselowski predicts that by 2050, 60% of people will be doing jobs that don’t currently exist. He predicts we could be working in jobs such as:

  • Transhumanist Designer/Engineer
  • Nano Medic
  • Memory Augmentation Surgeon
  • Ethics Lawyer
  • Weather Controller
  • Spaceport Traffic Control

He believes that many jobs will focus on technology and the human body- improving health and extending human life,

Whilst many of these jobs focus on science and technology, all jobs will be affected and will either become obsolete or undergo significant changes.  Whilst in school, it is crucial that you engage in your studies and keep an open mind about the future. What you aim to be doing in even 5 years, may not be what you will actually be doing.

Just remember the mantra- change is constant and accesses your allies to assist you to navigate through your career.
