The Best Jobs of the Future

As our world evolves and becomes more reliant on automation and robotics for everyday things, so many parts of our lives have become more convenient. Along with these modern conveniences, many jobs that once existed are now replaced by robots or computers. Even McDonald’s soft drinks are now automated.

And there is more change to come.

By 2030, there will be 73 million jobs replaced by robotics. The shift in modernization has left people scrambling to figure out if their career could be obsolete and looking to the future to find a career path that is robot and automation-proof. The sheer number of replaceable jobs is staggering, so it is understandable to feel a bit overwhelmed by this. 

Fear not! Civilization has been through this before. The Industrial Revolution, which started in the 18th Century, switched most manufacturing processes from hand production to powered machines. People were shocked and appalled and believed that the world would never recover, but, alas—here we stand!

The great news is that new jobs will replace some of the positions taken by automation and robotics. So, what kind of new jobs can you look forward to in the future?

What Should a Resume Cost?

Whether you are a seasoned worker looking for a new career position or are fresh into the workforce, resume writing can be intimidating!

The task of resume writing can stop some people from even applying for a new job, and for others, they turn to online templates to make life easier. But, employers are looking for more than your biographical information and a timeline of past employment.

Employers want to understand your value and what you will contribute to their business. They want to hear your specific attributes and how you have made your most recent employer better.

If you are serious about a new position, you need a carefully crafted resume, and if you can’t or are unsure of how to create one, a professional resume writer is your answer.

How 2020 and COVID-19 Changed Job Searching Forever

There is no denying that everything changed during 2020, and there is no denying the driving factor in this change: COVID-19. After a significant disruption during the initial lockdown period, the pandemic shook up the hiring process for many employers.

The events of 2020 have profoundly changed all our lives. For so many, work was terminated or altered completely. Working parents were forced into unprecedented situations, and almost everyone is forced into the “new normal” as Zoom meetings, and handwashing becomes routine.

As much as we are looking forward to being able to socialize without restrictions, some changes will be lasting. We have seen offices shut their doors, favouring work-from-home solutions as employers now view remote work as a viable and sustainable option. The summer of 2020 also saw the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement force the world to take a long-overdue look at racial inequality. As a result, equity, inclusivity, and diversity will become a major focus of evolving business guidelines and policies.

Job searchers fear not; we will tell you exactly how job searches have changed and how you can adapt to the changes to get the job you want!
