10 Survivors Accountant financial life planner Secretary more complex tasks, planning, accounting, etc Computer Programmer needs industry specific people skills Bank Teller answers higher level requests Factory Worker expert on computer- controlled machines "I think there's going to be an enormous shift of occupations. Most jobs are going to change. They'll survive, but they'll change." … futurist Alvin Toffler, author of Future Shock and Revolutionary Wealth

11 Why Jobs Move Offshore/Change Work is highly repetitive (accounting) Work is predictable and well defined (customer service) Can be broken down into small manageable projects (software development) Can be turned into a routine (Tele-marketing) Proximity to the end customer is not important (phone based tech support of consumer products) End customer has already moved offshore (semiconductor sales)

12 Safe Careers

13 Jobs That Stay… High degree of ambiguity (top management positions) Unpredictable (hands on technical troubleshooting) Understanding of the culture is critical (authoring books, marketing, comedians) Time is of the essence (fast product development) Requires a high degree of collaboration (making a movie) Requires close proximity to the end customer (firefighting, auto repair, dental work) Requires high degree of creativity and innovation (creating new products, technical breakthroughs, writing music) Requires complex communication skills Needs to understand and implement the big picture Involves complex pattern recognition (counselor, lawyer)
