In the past, careers were stable, linear and singular. People chose one path and pursued it over the course of their lives from college to retirement. In our modern age of technology driven exponential change - this model no longer works.

Careers are now complex, fragmented, specialized, collaborative and ever evolving. More often than not, our work life will be made up of a portfolio of micro-careers.

This presentation will show you a snapshot of 20 careers that will likely come of age in the next 10 years. Some of these jobs exist now, but will come into greater demand soon. Others do not exist yet, but through our daily scanning of future fringe signals we see strong potential in their emergence.

    • 20 JOBS OF THE FUTURE @sparksandhoney
    • “60% of the best jobs in the next ten years haven’t been invented yet.” -Thomas Frey
    • In the past, careers were stable, linear and singular. People chose one path and pursued it over the course of their lives from college to retirement.
    • In our modern age of technology driven exponential change - this model no longer works.
    • Careers are now complex, fragmented, specialized, collaborative and ever evolving. More often than not, our work life will be made up of a portfolio of micro-careers.
    • The following slides will show you a snapshot of 20 careers that will likely come of age in the next 10 years. Some of these jobs exist now, but will come into greater demand soon. Others do not exist yet, but through our daily scanning of future fringe signals we see strong potential in their emergence.

    • Digital Death Manager: A specialist that creates, manages or eliminates content to craft ones online presences posthumously.
    • Personal Life Log Archivist: In the age of the completely archived life, there will be a need for AI experts to organize, catalog and make sense of the volumes personal content and to identify potential uses for one's life log.

    • Quantified Self Personal Trainer: A health trainer who not only recommends and curates diets, but also analyzes personal and fitness routine data to create optimum personal life choices.
    • Vicarious Videographer: Like a Task Rabbit for experiences, the VV captures unique experiences (via life logging devices Google Glass/GoPro) for consumption by armchair explorers.
    • Hackschooling Counselor: This counselor encourages students to hack the real world and experiment with life rather than only pursuing traditional educational paths.
    • Privacy Consultant: This consultant reveals vulnerabilities in an individualʼs personal, physical, and online security points.
