- A new study forecasts that over the next 10 years, advancements in technology, automation, smart machines and globalization will touch nearly every job.
- The World Economic Forum estimates that up to 65% of children entering elementary school today are likely to work in jobs that don’t exist yet.
- Learn the best way to profit from jobs of the future. It’s already up nearly 30% year to date!
I’m sure you remember being asked as a kid:
“What do you want to be when you grow up?”
I remember being asked on multiple occasions. For years, I said with confidence: “I want to be a brain surgeon.”
It wasn’t until age 12 that I realized I didn’t really like being in hospitals and I couldn’t stand the sight of blood.
So, while it is an honorable profession, it just isn’t for me.
As I grew older, I naturally found my niche in economics and finance.
And now, I see many children changing their answers to that same question. We are living during a transitional time, and many of the traditional jobs we know will be changed in some way in the years ahead.
From surgeons to truck drivers — no job field will be left untouched.
This is the kind of Disruptification we watch for here at Bold Profits. And, in this case, how the old-world way of performing most tasks will be replaced with new-world innovations.
And that is exactly where our opportunity is today. I’ve found a unique way to profit in the jobs of the future.
The Workforce Transformation Is Already Here
A recent news headline caught my attention.
The article from the Australian Associated Press touted: “Weird, wacky jobs of the future revealed.”
The article is based on recent collaboration by Ford Motor Co., Deakin University and Griffith University.
The project, called “100 Jobs of the Future,” takes readers on a journey into the future of work.
In all, the study concludes that a revolution is overhauling the work world.
It forecasts that over the next 10 years, advancements in technology, automation, smart machines and globalization will touch nearly every job.
In some cases, existing jobs will disappear altogether, while brand-new jobs will be created.
Here’s a sampling of future jobs we can anticipate:
- Artificial intelligence (AI) educator — teachers of the future who will help people learn how machines learn and adapt.
- Digital memorialist and archivist — librarians of the future who’ll collect, manage, curate and archive deceased people’s digital identities using AI.
- Drone experience designer — customer service representatives of the future who will interact with companies that use drones for services such as deliveries or surveillance and make certain customers receiving the drone services have the best experience.
- Biofilm plumber — plumbers of the future who will be good at working with their hands as they “install and maintain coatings of biofilm on the walls of sewage and wastewater pipes.” Biofilms are friendly bacteria that assist in breaking down complex organic waste.
This outlook is remarkable.
But for some occupations — the future is now.
Grab 30% Gains in the Best “Future of Jobs” Play
My childhood dream job is already stepping into the future.
Surgeons of today are seeing a transition in their industry thanks to advanced virtual reality (VR) technology.
In his Bold Profits article published on July 11, my colleague Ian Dyer highlighted how VR will take surgical training to the next level.
But that’s not the only industry that will be transformed.
A report from TechCrunch revealed how the ride-sharing company Uber is making huge strides to disrupt the trucking industry with its Uber Freight app and global expansion.
According to Uber Freight, the company is lightening the load for traditional carriers by aiming to offer up-front, no-haggle pricing, instantly confirmed bookings and payments within seven days of proof of delivery.
This is where I see huge potential for us to reap the rewards from the “jobs of the future” phenomenon.
I think investing in the ARK Innovation ETF (NYSE: ARKK) is a great way to profit from this trend.
This exchange-traded fund (ETF) participates in innovative companies that are disrupting their industries.
Just this year to date, the fund is up almost 30%.
The World Economic Forum estimates that up to 65% of children entering elementary school today are likely to work in jobs that do not yet exist.
So I don’t see this trend slowing down anytime soon.
And in the future, when youngsters are asked: “What do you want to be when you grow up?”, I’m certain some answers will be: “An AI educator.”
Until next time,
