Predictions on the Future Job Market

Speaking at the TEDx Reset Conference in Istanbul, Turkey, futurist Thomas Frey predicted that over 2 billion jobs will disappear by 2030 - roughly 50% of all the jobs on the planet. I really liked what he has said and decided to post this short blog with a link to his predictions.

It wasn’t intended as a doom and gloom outlook. Rather, it was intended as a wakeup call, letting the world know how quickly things are about to change, and letting academia know that much of the battle ahead will be taking place at their doorstep.

Here is a list of five major industries where he predicts the job picture will be changing dramatically over the coming decades.
  • Power Industry
  • Transportation Industry
  • Education Industry
  • Publishing & Printing
  • Manufacturing & Robotics
Read more in FuturistSpeaker.Com about Thomas Frey, his predictions, and about the new jobs that will likely replace some of the lost jobs over the coming decades.

The predictions need to be seriously considered and discussed as America continues to change and adapt to the future. Share your own predictions about the future job market with us.
