The jobs of tomorrow will be different from the jobs of today
In their recent report, “The future of work after COVID-19”, McKinsey predict that:
- More than 100 million workers, or 1 in 16, will need to find a different occupation by 2030.
- Almost all growth in labor demand will occur in high-wage jobs.
- Most workers will need different skills to secure employment.
New skills will be needed
For adults already in the workforce, and for kids in school now, attaining the right skills today will prepare us for the working world of tomorrow.
By building key STEAM skills like computer science, students also develop important soft skills.
These abilities are the foundation for a rewarding and successful career in any field, whether in technology or engineering, teaching or healthcare, business or the arts.
