Technological employment has been growing in the labor market. In the coming decades, this growth will be even greater. A few tips give us some insight into the evolution of tech jobs in the coming years: let’s take a look at them.
Although the creation of technology jobs has grown rapidly in the last three decades, the projection for the future is much higher. If we analyze the trend of the last 10 years and the projection for the next 10 years, everything indicates that the technological employment offers will multiply exponentially.
In this context, it is important to know where technology is moving and what will be the relevant aspects of technological jobs in the immediate future.
How will technology employment be in the 21st century?
Although we may tend to use arguments very close to science fiction in which machines replace man, this seems a long way off. However, trends indicate some aspects that are going to be relevant:
- Remote and increasingly decentralized work
- The coronavirus pandemic showed us that working from home was a very possible option, and not just for technology companies.
- The immediate future will see an increasing decentralization of technological employment. From fully delocalized companies, even without physical headquarters, to advances in communications that will enable agile, fast, and secure processes.
The savings from remote work will give way to more efficient and productive companies with a wider range of action. On the other hand, tools such as blockchain enable decentralization even at a higher level through smart contracts.
Super expertise in the field of employment
The era of the multidisciplinary technology worker is over. While there are still some blurred lines between certain responsibilities in technology employment, specialization is increasing and the need to fill specialized positions is growing at an exponential rate.
This translates into labour models we already know (virtual reality experts, data protection specialists, smart contract professionals, blockchain developers, hardware engineers, and others). But there are also new ones yet to come. They are emerging from the very demand generated by technological advances.
In this context, it is also relevant to take into account the need for the evolution of technological training. This is a crucial aspect that will also play an important role in the technology work in the coming decades.
Artificial intelligence and metaverses
Although there are many factors that will influence future employment, artificial intelligence and metaverses are undoubtedly two of the main ones.
Artificial intelligence represents a major technological leap. It is considered one of the most relevant technological frontiers. Advances in this field are astounding and the possibilities for all segments and productive sectors are on the horizon.
Meanwhile, metaverses, although they may still seem distant from their everyday application, the truth is that they are getting closer and closer. in some areas, such as the video game industry for entertainment purposes, they are becoming a reality.
The productive alternative that works within metaverses, according to many analysts, is one of the most promising for the future. In fact, in combination with artificial intelligence, it could bring about a real revolution in the workplace.
