What are some of the new career possibilities? Here is a list of 8 new jobs people will have in 2025, at least according to a recent article in Fast Company.
Technology has already eradicated many jobs. For example, the elevator operator, pinsetter, copy boy, iceman, milkman, switchboard operator, typist, telegraph operator – all jobs that are almost extinct. The list is growing longer day by day.
Both educators and businesses have a daunting task ahead of them: teach students and employees skills to solve problems we’ve never seen before and won’t see for years.

Digitization and the Internet require less of a need for a person to be physically present. But research of a vast collection of resources and information is daunting for many people. The librarian of the past was an expert with the Dewey Decimal System. The new librarian will be a digital archivist, savvy with searches, keywords and helpful websites.

Consumers and businesses will retain accountants to offer them business and financial advice, not fill and file forms.
