“Even before COVID-19 affected unemployment rates throughout the world, companies and workers were wondering what jobs of the future would be. The World Economic Forum sought to answer that question in Jobs of Tomorrow: Mapping Opportunity in the New Economy. A collaboration with Burning Glass Technologies, LinkedIn Learning, and Coursera, the report examines emerging jobs—those in professions that have grown the most during the past five years—in the global economy and the unique skill sets needed to excel in those jobs.
According to the report, future jobs fit into seven clusters: care economy; data and artificial intelligence; engineering and cloud computing; green economy; people and culture; product development; and sales, marketing, and content. The clusters encompass both digital-first jobs, such as AI specialists and site reliability engineers, and human-centric jobs such as agile coaches and talent acquisition specialists.”
