7 future-proof careers paths for the next generation
While these days, the butcher and baker are likely to stay in business for longer than the candlestick maker, some areas are better than others for job security.
Like the clerk at Blockbuster or the telephone operator, there are some jobs we simply won’t need in the future. A study by CSIRO and the Australian Computer Society found almost half of Australian jobs were at risk of automation over the next 20 years.
As the COVID-19 pandemic has unfolded, digital technology has become even more important to Australia’s businesses, workforce, and economy. There has also been a major population shift away from the metropolis as more and more workers venture to regional areas – now able to work remotely, creating new prosperous regional business hubs.
While technological advancements continue to change the way workforces operate, there are sectors facing significant growth, with the promise of a stable and sustainable future for their workers.
So for all the high-school, university and tertiary students out there, you might want to consider these career paths before you begin the next semester's subjects.
