LinkedIn’s survey of the top emerging jobs in 2020 came as no surprise. LinkedIn lists Artificial Intelligence Specialists, Blockchain Developers, Java Script Developers, Back-end developers and Robotic Process Automation Consultants as the top jobs for the year.
Almost all firms today – whether or not they are in the technology field, are being buffeted by the winds of technological change. The main technologies causing change at corporations are:
a) Artificial Intelligence and its allied fields such as Data Science
b) Blockchain and its myriad use cases – where a new use case for the technology seems to be found almost every day,
c) the “digitalization” of businesses – which require firms to change their front-end presentation to their end clients as well as to rejig their back-end systems and business processes to fit the newly designed front ends, and
d) the computerized automation (or mechanization) of jobs that involve repetitive processing.
