In terms of development, people’s demand for healthcare, renewable energy, and big data is increasing, so it is expected to increase related jobs. In addition, it is a trend to work from home, so companies also value information security personnel; how to enable employees to perform tasks efficiently and safely at home is a topic that bosses need to think about.

N-in-1 labor demand is rising! Most companies tend to recruit people with multiple skills. With the help of the Internet and robots, a “one-person team” may appear in the office in the future. This means that everyone needs to continuously improve their skills and advantages to avoid being replaced by robots or other employees in the future.

On the other hand, due to the rapid development of e-commerce trends and the substantial increase in online shopping transactions, retail trade is expected to lose 586,800 jobs between 2020 and 2030. The employment trend in the manufacturing industry is expected to have some recovery, but with global competition and robots joining the production, it may also be one of the industries with the fastest job loss.

What other professions may rise? Experts predict that robots and algorithms will replace many jobs in the next ten years, but professional positions may substantially increase demand. Including social media marketing experts, Internet celebrities, care stewards, game data analysis & planners, pet sitters, intellectual property managers, physiological signal algorithm development engineers, technology farmers, and other occupations.
