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.
Productivity Counselors: With the emphasis on productivity and “making a
difference,” coupled with new tracking technologies, people will need help refining
their lives to improve their productivity, combining ergonomics, wellness, time
management and career counseling.
Personal Digital Curator: A specialist that recommends and maintains your unique
suite of apps, hardware, software and information sources for your evolving
personality and career.	
  
Microbial Balancer: A trained balancer that assesses the composition and microbial
makeup of an environment or individual and provides recommendations for balancing
ecosystems for enhanced health.	
  
Corporate Disorganizer: An expert that shuffles hierarchies in companies to create
start-up culture or organized chaos.	
  
Curiosity Tutor: A personal advisor in flaneuring; an advisor that not only provides
inspiration and content to spark curiosity, but one that teaches the art of discovery.	
  
Alternative Currency Speculator: As Bitcoin and other virtual currencies are gaining
traction with people who distrust Fiat currency; this is creating an opportunity for
alternative currency arbitrage and investment opportunities.	
  
 	
  
Urban Shepherd: A combination of resilient micro-farmer and guide to the nature-filled
side of the city. These plant care specialists focus on small-scale gardens and plots that
exist in unusual urban areas.
Printing Handyman: A neighborhood materials and 3D printing specialist, akin to the
“do it all” local repair man of the past who comes to you to fulfill your micro-
manufacturing needs.
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 volumes of personal
content and to identify potential uses for one's life log.	
  
Digital Detox Therapist: A counselor who specializes in separating technology
stressed individuals from their devices, creating unique analog immersion zones.	
  
Crowdfunding Specialist: A expert on sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo who
understands how to promote and attain funds for a project through crowd funding.	
  
Cultural Skill Sherpa: Like a financial advisor, this “pivot professional” helps clients
develop and acquire the skills to prepare for positions that are one of a kind, emergent
or newly relevant.	
  
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 individual’s
personal, physical, and online security points.	
  
Skype Staging: Hired career advisors that prepare and help an individual work
through remote interviews or video conferencing, including etiquette, appearance and
conversational skills.	
  
Meme Agent: Similar to a celebrity or talent agent, a Meme Agent represents and
maximizes the value of the personality or intellectual property used in a meme.	
  
Drone Pilot: Expanding outside of the military, as demand for commercial and private
drone use increases, experienced drone drivers (especially those with urban
experience) will be sought after.
