Are you thinking about a career change?
Have you considered productivity counselor, curiosity tutor or digital detox therapist?
These are jobs of the not-too-distant future and some companies already have them.
Sparks & Honey, which operates a data-driven advertising newsroom that helps synchronize brands with culture (so says its website), compiled a list of 20 jobs of the future.
“More often than not, our work life will be made up of a portfolio of micro-careers,” Sparks & Honey notes in its presentation.
Very few of us will work for one company. Almost everyone I know is on their second or third company, which often leads to a reinvention or a reimagining of skill sets.
And that is what intrigues me about the jobs envisioned for the future. Whether you think you will ever have a job as a corporate disorganizer, digital death manager or privacy consultant, you will probably need to know a bit about each of those areas.
Do you know how to protect your privacy? How are you at developing content? Are you prepared to interview for a job via Skype?
If you answered “no,” it might be time to enhance your skills.
