The Fourth Industrial Revolution is here and rapidly gaining ground. Many jobs are being automated via technologies including artificial intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things and cloud computing.
Research suggests about 60% of occupations could see at least a third of their job tasks automated, while the half-life of learned skills is now about five years. This makes constant learning a requirement of ongoing career success.
In this series we look at how you can stay relevant and employable in the face of all this rapid change.
Our advice is based on a survey completed by more than 2,000 people (951 employers and 1,253 professionals). We also draw on the in-depth knowledge of our consultants who are constantly monitoring global and local employment trends and talking to candidates and employers alike.
