After looking at the title of this blog, you might be wondering,” Why should we consider the ‘demand’ factor before pursuing a career? Aren’t we supposed to consider where our interests lie and what we are comfortable with?”
Well, you are correct, but only partially.
For job seekers, the ‘demand’ factor for specific jobs should be the driving force in their career decisions, perhaps now more than ever. With the job market witnessing new events such as the global COVID-19 pandemic, the onset of artificial intelligence resulting in the replacement of humans by machines, and waves of layoffs due to recession, it's important to know which jobs are still on the upswing.
Lately, there has been a lot of anticipation regarding the emergence of AI and, thus, the complete disappearance of a lot of roles. Yes, it is true. But what can’t be ignored is that whenever a new technology comes along, some jobs become irrelevant, but at the same time, new jobs are created as well.
Thus, there is always an opportunity in every adversity.
In this article, I will be walking you through the roles that have been the talk of the town lately and are emerging at an accelerating speed. The acquisition of these skills will not just future-proof your career but will keep you on par with recent technological advancements.
