In order to make an impact in an organisation you need to be prepared for the future and what change is in store, how technology is going to change how you work as well as what infrastrucures & systems need to be implemented now and in the near future in order to make a smooth transition into the new era of the next stage of the internet and database systems which protect and manage our data.
The future of work is changing, and everything is becmoing increasingly more automated with people becoming the supervisor rather than the worker who carries out the task.
To keep up with this workers and employers are looking for skills and achievements which they can use and leverage. Your mindset towards learning will be key to this, if you think that you can’t learn because you did not complete that course that one time then stop right now. You can learn anything if you put your mind to it.
Skills give you value and are increased by what you learn. The curent job market is shaped by saving time and money such as using siri as a call centre assistant. This means that the less a person can work long term, more people will have to focus a particular set of skills so they can work short term. Taking freelance or tempory contracts – in other wrods the gig economy.
This economy with alot of repetative long term tasks gone, due to automation, will shape the future of work, so learn as much as you can.
