According to the Foundation for Young Australian’s, the world of work will look vastly different to the world of work you currently experience. Robotics, automation, artificial intelligence, working remotely, and an increase in digital work…many things will change – even within the next 10 years.

According to their recent New Work Smarts report, you can expect the following to occur by 2030:

  • Automation and globalization will change what we do in every job.
  • Within the next 10 years, many jobs will no longer exist
  • Teenagers can expect to work for an average of 17 employers over their lifetime across 5 different careers.
  • Workers will spend 100% more time-solving problems, 30% more time learning and 77% more time using STEM skills (science, technology, maths, engineering) than the same jobs demand now.
  • Workers will spend more time getting value out of technology and use more digital skills (e.g., updating websites)
  • Workers will be more flexible and independent in the workplace.
  • With globalization, more workers will collaborate with people around the world.
  • Workers will spend less time on routine and manual tasks due to automation, and more time focused on people, solving strategic problems and thinking creatively.

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.

Whenever you Google “Jobs Of The Future”, ‘“Best Paying Jobs”, or “Jobs In Most Demand”, you’ll always find Information Technology.

The most in-demand job anywhere is cybersecurity… protecting data from hackers, viruses, ransomware and many other cyber crimes that threaten our interconnected world. Cybersecurity is the body of technologies, processes, and practices designed to protect networks, computers, programs and data from attack, damage or unauthorized access. In a computing context, security includes both cybersecurity and physical security.

The second most in-demand job is Data Analyst. Data analysts translate numbers into plain English. Every business collects data, whether it’s sales figures, market research, logistics, or transportation costs. A data analyst’s job is to take that data and use it to help companies make better business decisions.

Information technology is not just about cybersecurity and data analysis. It encompasses many jobs in the computer sciences… mobile devices, gaming, digital marketing, hardware and software, coding, design, service support, website development, and sales..  the choice is vast and all these careers are in-demand which makes them highly paid jobs, and jobs that are transferable.

So, an IT person in the defence force, can work in health technologies (a massive growing industry), the banking sector or in communication. The fact that these technologies use English as a base language creates the opportunity for global travel or online consultancy.

In this digital age, the IT sector is never going to stop growing …  it will create many in-demand jobs with job security, great salary, transferable skills, new inventions of Artificial Intelligence (AI), robotics, blockchain technology, cyber currencies (Bitcoin) to name a few. This is an industry where you never stop learning; a lifetime of education and upskilling every two years.

What’s really good about IT is that its gender neutral, and there’s a job for every level of expertise. You can enter with a degree, diploma or certificate.

I often hear the misconception that jobs in this sector require a university degree. This simply is not true of many key roles. In an industry that is focused on practical skills, it’s easy to see why the combination of competency-based outcomes and hands-on experience typically offered by VET courses is, in many cases, more useful than more academic university studies.

In fact, in one of the most in-demand roles, ICT Support Technician, around half the current employees are VET qualified.

Love photography and music? Have you considered combining these passions and pursuing a career as a music photographer? Michelle Grace Hunder is a leading music photographer based in Melbourne.

She has worked with musicians such as Briggs, Seth Sentry, Urthboy, Camp Cope, Missy Higgins, Illy, and Gang of Youths.

Michelle is self-taught and didn’t pick up a camera until the age of 31. She initially studied sports science at university and worked in sports marketing and event management. She then worked in film before finding her true passion in music photography.

Not only does Michelle shoot music events, she also tours with musicians, and shoots promotional material for album covers, press releases and tour posters. The Weekly Career News recently asked Michelle to provide tips for young people starting out in a career in music photography:

It can be daunting when you first start as there are so many people trying to make it in music photography.

  • Start shooting for a local publication and request the gigs no one else wants to shoot. Smaller less glamourous gigs are where you get the best practice for later on.
  • And shoot LOTS! I was shooting 3-4 gigs a week when I first started. I did so many live shoots in the early days just to get known and get my name out there. That was really important. There are no shortcuts, its really just about getting really good so people notice your work.
  • Develop your style and what makes your photos stand out from others! Don’t copy other people, work out your own vibe!”

AI will transform the way we work across all industries in the future. For example, more than 5 million jobs will disappear from manufacturing and customer service by 2020. Can apprenticeships help young people make a smooth transition to new jobs created by AI? According to the latest World Economic Forum, it’s believed they can. There are new jobs and skills to be learned, with employers driving the change. Read the article and see examples here.

Careers in Sport – Do you want to be the next Courtside Reporter?

The most important thing you need to know about a career in sports broadcasting is that the hard work starts long before you get the dream job.

It’s easy to turn on the television and dream that you’ll someday work in the sports broadcasting industry, but the elite sport is not a place where you can sit around expecting things to come your way just by existing.

To be a sports journalist of any kind you’ll need a communications or journalism degree, a lot of work experience and great networking skills. For the Full article and more information click here.
