I like to read different things and different topics. Lately, I have been reading some topics related to employment. Resumes, interviews, networking etc. I stumbled upon this one. It’s an interesting read on The Future of Work and Digital Proficiency. Well, I thought it was interesting anyway.
While this article is specifically talking about how technology is changing, there seems to lots of changes when it comes to employment. How you apply, your resume and the way positions are being interviewed have changed. The types of positions you can apply for have significantly changed as well. While we still have Accountants, Engineers, Doctors. But now you can apply for things like Social Media Specialist, Beverage Dissemination Officer, and Digital Overlord.
How you can do your job has changed as well. Partially because of technology, yes. But, there are other reasons. Many are moving from a “9-5” shift to a variety of different shifts. You can also work in other places other than the office. You can work from home, a coffee shop, or while you travel. The way you sit at the office has changed. We are using words like ergonomics to sit in your chair and desk more comfortably. Heck, you don’t even have to sit at your desk. You can stand as well.
So, we have lots of changes. We want to be more efficient, and effective. We are using words like “measurable” and “corporate culture”. We have projects to improve our projects.
But is it a good thing? Do you Agree or Disagree that the future of work is changing in a good way?
