Technological revolution will create 97 million jobs by 2025


According to the World Economic Forum, the global workforce is automating faster than expected, so it is forecasted that 85 million jobs will disappear between now and 2025. 

Companies’ adoption of new technologies will transform the tasks, jobs, and skills that companies will need by 2025.

According to the WEF, employers will roughly divide the work between humans and machines within five years.

Despite the above, just as jobs will disappear, new opportunities will also arise. The acceleration of technological change will create 97 million jobs.

Every time we see the data on new jobs, it is quite surprising, said Vesselina Stefanova, a researcher at the WEF Center for New Economy and Society.

Emerging professions span a wide range of green economy sectors, data analytics or artificial intelligence. 

The statistics analyzed by the organization also record a growing increase in jobs in engineering, cloud computing and product development.

Sectors that are important for the people such as economy, marketing, sales, content creation (such as social media management), software and application development, and tasks focused on digital transformation will also continue to expand.

Top ten jobs that will be on the rise in the near future

Recently, employers have an appetite to hire process automation specialists, information security analysts, and Internet of Things specialists.

For the WEF, the ten jobs that will be on the rise are the following: 

  • Data Scientists and Analysts
  • Artificial intelligence and machine learning specialists
  • Specialists in handling large volumes of data
  • Marketing and digital strategies specialists
  • Automation process specialists
  • Professionals dedicated to business development
  • Digital transformation specialists
  • Digital security analysts
  • Software and application developers
  • Internet of things specialists

On the other hand, the entity estimates that analytical thinking, creativity and flexibility will be among the most sought after skills in 2025.

Added to these, thinking critically and solving problems, characteristics that cross different professional profiles, are becoming increasingly important in the future.

Research indicates that the need for skills such as self-management, active learning, resilience and stress tolerance has also been detected.

Finally, the WEF document highlights that about 84% of employers are prepared to digitize work processes rapidly, including a significant expansion of teleworking.

However, 78% of business leaders anticipate some negative impact on worker productivity.

These changes will impact a large majority of the workforce that can perform their duties by connecting through the internet.
