Jobs of the Future

The “future” of work is no longer in the future, it’s already here!

And with robots in the mix, ever wonder where that leaves you in the workplace? Fear not! It’s definitely not a dystopian future for employees. 

Read below to find out what CEO and Co-founder Jahanzaib Ansari, has to say about what future jobs will look like, and which jobs will be at the least risk for automation!

There are many jobs that are not at a risk for automation!

These include value-added roles that require genuine creativity, involve building complex relationships, or are unpredictable in nature. And even roles that are abstract analytically or interactively.  

In fact, job characteristics such as these aren’t limited to white-collar jobs. These characteristics encompass roles in many industries and at any level in the organization. Such as that of an artist, business strategist, plumber, nurse, manager and many more.

This is because jobs today are not the same as before. They require a lot more creativity, innovation, and complex relationships building than in the past. Jobs now are more analytical and unpredictable in nature, requiring a higher level of problem solving and collaboration with diverse teams.

As well, since the modern workplace is more interpersonal, skills such as communication and having a growth mindset are highly valued. Since they ensure a more productive and innovative environment; attributes that are crucial in a competitive market. Simply because these skills are what the future of work will rely on.

And so, investment in more “human” skills like leadership and emotional intelligence can also reduce jobs at risk for automation. According to Forbes, doubling the investment in skills training could even reduce job loss from 10% to 4%. At Knockri, our own evidence proves that applicants are increasingly exhibiting such traits in interviews, as more people are learning to become equipped with these skill-sets.

Safe to say…the jobs that you want to be doing will be here to stay, because they will forever require the human touch that no robot can replace.
