Professions of the Future


  • Daniela Aurelia Popa Tanase Danubius University


The new trends of today's digitization are permanently influencing the shaping of future jobs, ensuring compatibility between the workforce with the skills that will ensure professionalism and success in the era of automation and artificial intelligence. As the new digital world embraces sensors and automations with the ability to talk, connect and reason, this new wave of technology threatens the jobs currently performed by skilled staff, but it also creates opportunities for new ones to emerge. For example, the advent of the cinema changed the story of related professions: novelists continued to exist, and other new professions such as screenwriters and film directors appeared. Some jobs, for example the telephone operator have already been replaced by technical solutions.
