Jobs of the Future: Skills for the New Reality
Tue 16 May 2017, 18:30 – 20:30 CEST
Are you ready for the JOBs of the FUTURE?
Experts say that some of the hottest jobs of today will be obsolete by 2025. For example, some believe that Lawyers, Accountants, Actuaries, and Consulting Engineers and any other professional mainly involved in dealing with information is going to be replaced by algorithms and the AI. The World Economic Forum’s Future of Jobs study predicts that 5 million jobs will be lost before 2020 as artificial intelligence, robotics, nanotechnology and other socio-economic factors replace the need for human workers. So lets talk about the future. What skills do you need to have? How do you navigate in change? How do you prepare for the Jobs of the future?
In the workshop Jobs of the Future: Skills for the new Reality we will talk about different aspects of changing landscape of jobs, new ways of working and skills and competences one should have to be able to adapt to the new realities of the workplace.
7 Careers in a Lifetime becomes a norm
No matter what your background and experience is, your career path can be quite unpredictable. You might have a degree in law, work in public sector as a legal advisor for a couple of years, then do some corporate client management in a big company and switch to consultancy work dealing with certification in a small firm before starting your own business. The Forrester research predicts that youngest workers will have 12-15 jobs in a lifetime. Dozens of experts suggest that it becomes a norm to go through many careers in a lifetime. The number is usually seven, though at times it is as low as three, and sometimes as high as 10. So the big question is which skills one needs to have to be able to qualify for jobs not yet created and career switches one can't yet foresee.
During this workshop, we talk about skills of the future and new paradigms of work.
- We will discuss how technology changes collaboration, context and requirements of most jobs.
- We will discover how the AI already challenge some of the most widespread professions out there.
- We will focus on skills that become very important in the new realities of the workplace.

"The foreseeable future will change dramatically many industries and professions. It is not any more talking about whether change is going to happen, it is about anticipating when, how and what are the new possibilities out there. I find it fascinating to work with people on discovering practical solutions for complex challenges. The development of Skills for the New reality is not something to focus on when one can clearly see the end game. It is something you need to invest in when your destination is still unclear. This is the only way how you get time to master them before you actually depend on them."
