Towards a Reskilling Revolution PDFA Future of Jobs for All

Are you afraid that robots may take your job?

If not, unfortunately, you should be: it’s only a question of time before that happens.

But, where does that leave you? Can you do something to adapt?

It turns out you can.

The World Economic Forum – in collaboration with the Boston Consulting Group – guides us “Towards a Reskilling Revolution.”

Who Should Read “Towards a Reskilling Revolution”? And Why?

In 2013, Carl Benedikt Frey and Michael A. Osborne published one of the most important studies of the last decade, titled “The Future of Employment: How Susceptible Are Jobs to Computerization?”

The study includes an appended table which ranks over 700 different occupations, “according to their probability of computerization,” starting with the least computerizable (probability 0.0028), recreational therapists, and ending with the most computerizable (probability 0.99), telemarketers.

After a while, BBC translated the study into a very neat tool which can help you find out how much your job is threatened by the rise of the machines in one second.

Ready?

Click here, type your job (or select the most similar one from the full list) and find out how easily you can be replaced.

If it’s anything above 50% – then you really, really need to read this article.
