Traditionally you get a job, and you worked a long time for the same boss. That seems to be an outdated concept nowadays. Long term contracts are not signed anymore. Flex-workers, temporary workers, and freelancers now populate the labor market. Unemployment is rising and there are ever fewer jobs through automation. The jobs of the future will be definitely different from what we were used to.
What is your vision about the jobs of the future?
My vision is getting clearer every day. You need to be flexible and you need to be skilled. One thing is certain, in my opinion, communication and sales via the internet will increase significantly in the near future. Most of the companies that do not present themselves at the Internet will disappear from the scene.
There will be a high demand for developers and programmers. And the demand for (flexible) specialists will increase in each area. As a store owner, you are pretty much obliged to offer you goods also via the Internet to make ends meet.
