The Jobs Of The Future Won’t Be Professions

“Instead of identifying your job role or description, you [will be] constantly adding skills based on what is going to make you more employable.”

Here’s a different take on the future of work — it might not just be the jobs that disappear, it might be the concept of professions as a whole.

The BBC offers a look at how some experts are preparing students for a work future that’s not based on professions, instead encouraging them to develop skills to help tackle specific challenges and problems.

For example, maybe students should train to “use empathy in a medical setting” as opposed to setting out to be a doctor.
