Jobs Of 2030
Who would have predicted in 1990 that “blogger” would be a job title 20 years later? So what’s in 2030, what jobs will you be able to choose from? A question that research company Fast Future and the U.K. Department of Business, Innovation and Skills tackled with the Shape of Jobs to Come report.
Among the futuristic jobs on the list are space pilot, quarantine enforcer, and narrowcaster (someone who tailors news to personal interests). On the sustainability front, futurists predict that vertical farmers, alternative vehicle developers, and climate change reversal specialists will have top billing. And as water becomes scarce, some countries (hint, hint China) might try to alter weather patterns. That’s where the weather modification police come in. Information overload will play a prominent role in future jobs–memory augmentation surgeons (for people who have been overexposed to information and need more memory), waste data handlers (to securely dispose of information), and virtual clutter organizers will help keep our brains from exploding.
