Careers that will see an increase in the future would definitely include:
- Careers related to AI & Technology: Human dependency on robots and machinery can be found to have increased many folds in the past few years. With the creation of many new virtual spaces and new technologies coming into the picture, there is no doubt that careers related to AI & technology will see an increase in the near future.
- Leisure Industry: With the past few years of lockdown, the concept of staycation has been spread far and wide. With further technological advancements it may even be possible to see distant lands from the comfort of one’s home. As such, providing internationally curated experiences in one’s own region, would be a very enticing opportunity. Similarly, ecotourism may also see a rise in the future.
- Traditional Careers: The careers like medicine, law, defense, engineering etc. would see either a slight increase or at least maintain its current level for job openings. These are what one could call the ‘essentials’ of any country
Careers that may see a decline in the future may include:
- Careers replaced by technology: With the new technologies that are currently up-and-coming or in it’s initial planning stage, it is quite possible that the jobs the machines can do would not require a human to do them anymore. To put it simply, with the coming of self-driving automobiles, we can say that professions like that of a designated driver or taxi driver would see a significant decline. However, we must factor in the things like cost of production, cost of selling and legalities that vary from region to region when making our assumptions about these careers. In a country like ours, there may still be a long way to go when we can see a self-driving car at every nook and corner. As such, we must also take into account the fact that the older generations, that are a vital part of any population, would also have to be well versed with the upcoming technology for being on board with the trends.
However, it is very important to note, that when you are passionate about a field of work and are ready to put in the necessary hard work for it, you will succeed. These statements are made on the current trends and knowledge available to me. It is quite possible that an event perhaps, unforeseen/unprecedented could change the current knowledge that people have of your choice of work!
