Professions of the future: new jobs aligned with the SDGs of the 2030 Agenda

What good can it do for you to know the professions of the future? Well, if you focus your training, knowledge and experience on skills that have great growth potential, there is a good chance that you will become an in-demand professional.

To do this, we must first take into account that developed countries focus their policies and legislation based on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and the 2030 Agenda. Therefore, the economy, society and the world in which we live advance towards meeting these goals. It is logical that labor and professional aspects are not left out of these changes, trends and growth of new economic sectors.

What are the professions of the future?

We call professions of the future those that offer great job opportunities. These opportunities are detected thanks to the structural trends that are created as a consequence of the global challenges that humanity faces.

To overcome the aforementioned challenges, a call has been made to the countries from the United Nations (UN) by creating 17 Sustainable Development Goals. The 2030 Agenda acts as an extension of them.

As their name indicates, these objectives contribute to achieving a future that is based on sustainability.. But for this it is necessary that changes occur, especially in the economic model, and that countries commit themselves to promoting them.

This is when new technologiescome into the picture. Without them it is not possible to carry out the necessary transition.

For example, if Artificial Intelligence and Big Data had not been developed, solar energy plants would not have the capacity to generate a constant and efficient supply.

Consequently, the professions of the future do not only address the points of interest of the SDGs and the 2030 Agenda, but also include parallel sectors and solutions that contribute to their fulfillment.

¿Which are the professions of the future?

Big Data Specialist

There are several professional profiles within Big Data, but the profession can be summarized in the analysis, management and use of large amounts of data. These activities are already in high demand; and this trend is expected to continue growing.

Companies consume more and more information and exploit it to find the right answers to their problems. If they do not do so, they run the risk of ceasing to be competitive, since they will not have the efficiency and optimization of resources that Big Data provides.

Big Data Scientists need to have programming, business (business-related), mathematical and statistical knowledge. Their task is to provide useful information for the company based on a large amount of data.

At UIE you can become a Big Data specialist with our Master in Data Technology and Intelligence business.

Expert in Digital Business

We are moving towards a digital economy, which is necessary to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.

For this reason, it is increasingly common for companies to look for personnel who know how to implement these types of processes within businesses and, increasingly, these types of professionals are being integrated into the workforce of companies of all sizes.

The truth is that in this field we never stop innovating; it is a continuous challenge for companies. For this reason, the professions in this field are counted in dozens. Some of the most requested are the following:

  • Chief Technology Officer
  • Marketing Technologist.
  • Social Media Strategist.
  • Ecommerce Manager.
  • UI/UX Designer.
  • Cybersecurity.

At UIE you can direct your professional future towards digital businesses, since we have a degree specialized in it.

Renewable energy sector

We cannot indicate a specific profession, since when talking about renewable energies we are referring to an entire sector that is constantly developing and will produce millions of jobs.

As expected, progress towards sustainability implies an energy transition. There are already big invesments in this field and great progress has been made.

The professions of the future most in demand in this field revolve around  installation and maintenance technicians, as well as people capable of providing technological solutions.

TWe can also find a large number of startups focused on this sector that are growing. As we have mentioned, this is a field that is in full development and it is very likely that the demand for specialists will grow in the coming years.

Expert in Intelligent Systems

Artificial intelligence is considered the 4.0 industry. In addition to digitalization, which serves as the basis, there are new technologies such as Robotics, the Internet of Things or Blockchain. The underlying idea is that human intervention is minimal, therefore, errors are reduced and productivity is increased.

Intelligence system engineers can design and implement artificial intelligence in any field and sector (including health, renewable energy and all key points to meet the SDGs), in addition to leading intelligent digital transformation processes. These types of actions will be carried out both in the industrial and private spheres.

For example, smart home design is just one of the many professions of the future that an Artificial Intelligence expert can access. From UIE we have a degree to train future professionals in this field.

If you are thinking of studying any of these fields, we recommend that you do so since the future prospects are very good. We invite you to take a look at our training offer and our university model, 100% oriented to strengthen your employability and bring you closer to the professions of the future .
