The World Economic Forum has published last week (January 22, 2020) the Mapping Report on Opportunity in the New Economy: Jobs of Tomorrow.
The analysis presented in the report is based on innovative metrics authored in partnership between the World Economic Forum’s New Metrics CoLab initiative and data scientists at three partner companies: Burning Glass Technologies, Coursera, and LinkedIn.
The cited authors have identified 7 emerging occupational clusters (further merged in the report into 5 professional families) + 2 other professional clusters registering job growth, the report thus thoroughly analyzing the following seven key professional clusters:
- Data and AI
- Engineering and Cloud Computing
- People and Culture
- Product Development
- Sales, Marketing and Content
- Care Economy
- Green Economy
Within the seven emerging professional clusters there are 96 jobs of tomorrow varying in their individual rate of growth and in the scale of job opportunities they offer. Collectively, these professions are set to yield 6.1 million new job opportunities in the coming three years.
The present summary enumerates for each professional cluster the:
- Emerging jobs and related Top 10 skills required
- Learning priorities & trajectories and continuous improvement of skills (per Coursera)
