At the beginning of 2000 the professional figure of the social media manager, the specialist in managing Facebook or Instagram pages, did not appear in CVs.
People who ten years ago invested in a training course and experimented with the language of social networks today can be called a pro.
There is a data on which it is necessary to start thinking straight away:
65% of the children who go to school today, once graduated, will carry out work that does not exist yet, but we can try to imagine.
The labour market is rapidly changing, the key word is certainly “flexibility” in tasks and a huge turnover of skills is taking place at world level. There will be a loss of 7.1 million jobs by 2020. At the same time, however, there will also be an increase of up to 2 million jobs in the technology, mathematics and economic professions.
Among the lost and earned places, there remains a “hole” of 5.1 million jobs.
It is estimated that by 2033, the sectors in which labour is more likely to be replaced by machinery are agriculture, fishing and manufacturing.
The ever more widespread trend is that of buying on the internet. In the future there will be less and less specialised salespeople and more e-commerce specialists. Choosing to study economic subjects is therefore an excellent idea.
The sectors in which, in spite of everything, man-machine substitution will remain unlikely, are those of education and health.
Healthcare, even if more and more assisted by biomedical equipment, can never do without a human presence able to assist and choose which medicines to administer to the patient.
Think especially of the psychology sector, the psychologist can never be substituted by technological machinery. Unthinkable to replace a psychologist which is able to listen in therapy.
In the global reading of possible future developments in the labour market, the higher the level of education and specialisation in a sector, the greater the possibility of having work. So what are we doing today to prepare the next generations for the world of tomorrow?
Finally, it is undeniable that one of the everlasting trades is that of international relations. Diplomacy will remain fundamental in our daily life forever.
