Jobs of the Future and What Parents can do to help their kids

Sunday 7 April 2013

In case you haven't heard, technology is making so many jobs redundant, that only the adaptable will survive. And when I say 'jobs redundant' I mean across EVERY conceivable industry and level of specialisation. Robotic surgery is now so good that not only can it be done remotely, it can be done without human intervention. That is only going to happen more so 'good bye surgeons'. There's a robotic hair washing machine and robotic vacuum cleaner so 'good bye hair apprenticeships'. There's software that does the work of 4 or 5 young lawyers, so 'good bye article clerks' and let's not metnion the robotic hamburger machine that can make and customise a few hundred choices of hamburgers for the waiting consumer. As more jobs vanish, others are created and if you are a parent of some youngsters there ARE some actions you CAN take to make a difference for them. And no, 'choice of school' is not what I'm talking about here. Instead

we have to focus on the kinds of capabilities you'd want your children to develop. In this article 'What will the future of work look like?' I chat with Ruth Callaghan from KidSpot, about jobs of the future and core skills that employees will need. Marcus Barber & Ruth Callaghan
