HOME | THE MOST IN-DEMAND JOBS FOR 2022

Workers will need to train in big data, machine learning, or automation if they want to stay up-to-date on the job market for years to come.

Technological profiles with a high human component will be the workers of the future. The technology, cybersecurity and research sectors will demand, in the not too distant future, professionals familiar with the digital world, connectivity and who are capable of working in a constantly changing environment.

In order to know what these professional profiles are, the World Economic Forum produced the report The Future Jobs 2018, in which they respond to the questions about employment that governments, companies and workers ask themselves. This report presents a new horizon until the year 2022, so that people who want to have the skills that will be needed in a few years now, can go training in the jobs of the future.

During the period covered by the report, from 2018 to 2022, advances in mobile technology and the internet will have an impact on aviation, travel and tourism, as well as on financial services, investment and consumption. In turn, the rapid adoption of new technologies by consumers will lead to advances in cloud technology, especially in the information and communication technology sector. For its part, it's expected that big data have a big impact on finance, investment, energy and technology. Finally, new energies and technologies will cause changes in both sectors.

Among the technologies most in-demand in the coming years are:

Robotics: companies from all sectors will use robots in the future. The oil and gas sector will demand aerial and underwater robots, while the financial and investment sector will opt for implanting humanoid robots, according to the study.

Accounting technologies: financial services will use this technology the most, followed by the health sector.

Machine learning: A wide range of industries are expected to adopt this technology, such as banking and insurance to predict risk; in the medical sector, where it will be used for advanced diagnostics; in the energy sector, to predict maintenance; or in the consumer sector, to better adapt to demand.

Automation: according to the report, in 2022 more than half of the work in different sectors will be carried out by machines and algorithms. Thus, manual work will be replaced by automation, and companies will have to train their workers to perform new functions.
