Hello Project Hope community, I hope you all have a great week ahead. We are very clear that technology is taking over everything, and even more so since last year, since we have seen a technological boom in all fields of daily life, especially in the medical sector. But, in the same way there have been great advances in other sectors such as transportation, delivery systems, education, in short, in everything.
This led me to think that the field of work could be changing dramatically. I think the trend is that the requirement for people trained in technological areas is increasing, but there are not enough professionals in those areas to meet the demand. I could be wrong in my perception, but, that is what I think. I would like to give some reasons below to justify my approach.
I will take as an example the Blockchain technology, which has only been in use for a little more than 10 years, and its applicability has been increasing, however, are there enough professionals trained in this area to be able to supply all the demand?
I think not, sure there are many programmers, but who have knowledge in Blockchain and cryptocurrencies, certainly not.
What are the reasons for this? Simply that it is a new technology, and that in recent years its development has been taking its way. There is talk of the possibility of its application in data records such as university degrees, and it is even thought of as a solution for electoral processes, in which it would be practically impossible to manipulate the results.
The management of public finances and that it is reflected in a Blockchain, would prevent these major acts of corruption from continuing to occur, because it would be easily detectable. Now, are there enough people around the world to be able to carry out this whole process of adaptation? I don't think so. Universities do not always keep up with innovations, because changing their curricula always requires the approval of many steps, and also that those who approve this must be knowledgeable in the subject, which adds another factor that could delay the training of more professionals in these areas.
But, in spite of all this, there is an enormous advance, there is no denying it. I think that from now on the most demanded careers in universities will not be medicine or law, as has been the case for decades, but those related to technological areas. Of course, doctors and lawyers, architects, etc. will still be needed, but they must broaden their knowledge in technology, in order to have a better chance to compete in the new world, one in which technology is more and more with all of us.
I would like to know what you think about this.
Thank you very much for reading me.
