Secretaries, Accountants, Factory Workers: These Are the Jobs in Danger of Disappearing in the Next Five Years

But there’s also a list of what will become in-demand jobs

This year’s edition of The World Economic Forum’s Future of Jobs Report 2020 maps the jobs and skills of the future and tracks “the pace of change based on surveys of business leaders and human resource strategists from around the world.” The report is extra relevant this year as it takes into account the effect of pandemic-related disruptions.
