Sixty per cent of Australian students are training for jobs that will not exist in the future or will be transformed by automation, according to a new report by the Foundation for Young Australians:
- 44 per cent of jobs will be automated in the next 10 years
- 60 per cent of students are chasing careers that won’t exist
- Young people will have an average of 17 different jobs
How about you?
It’s no different for us here in the United States either. Our high technology precision machining shops continue to demand skilled workers for:
- Computer Aided Design (CAD)
- Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM)
- Computer Numeric Controls (CNC)
All of the shop owners that I speak with indicate that they would hire an applicant with these skills- regardless of whether or not they have an immediate opening.
Our July PMPA Business Trends Report showed 85% of shops had a positive outlook on Employment prospects.
