Skills we Require to survive in 2031

Before we start talking about the future, let us talk about our past a little bit.

Which part of history do you like the most?

Evolution of humans?

Introduction of technology?

Machines taking over manpower?

Or 2020?

I love every bit of human evolutionary history.

We know how humans invented fire, life-changing discovery of something and that seems an absolute adventure to me.

Who thought one would be able to make money by just writing some stories (blogging)?

I never thought that we would be ordering food via apps, thank god someone came up with this genius idea and executed it as well.

From inventing fire to cook raw meat to ordering food online, we have come a very long way.

Sometimes I believe we are already living in the future.

Technology has already made our life so much simpler and easier.

So what do I think can happen in 2031?

What skills and jobs we require in 2031 for survival?

Are we going to talk about the things that don’t even exist?

Do I have a white ball through which I can predict the future?

No, I don’t have that crystal ball, I wish to have one though.

But here we can predict the future skills and field of work we require to survive in 2031 through our wild imagination (kidding, based on the data I got from the internet).

Here are some skills and fields that are already booming in the present.

CODING:

In 2021 we have already made our life so dependent on technology, just imagine the world of technology in 2031. Crazy, right?

Coding is the basic requirement for every technology. I can’t think of anything that doesn’t require coding.

It has made digital marketing so much easier for the people who are technically challenged and are from the non-IT departments. From website building to graphic designing you can find templates and fix for literally everything. Example: Fir website building you have WordPress, Wix, etc and for graphics, you have websites like canvas, cello, etc.

If you know photoshop and coding for real, your skills can not be replaced by these websites. They are just for the people like me who don’t know anything about coding or graphic designing to make our work easy.

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI):

In 2021 we will live in a world of Alexa, Siri, and google play. What do you think can happen by 2031?

Robots?

What about them?

Here’s food for the thought for you,

Just think about robots taking orders and serving in cafes.

Robots doing shopping for you from your shopping list. How insane does that sound? Not at all?

Because you also know with this speed of technology, anything can happen in the world of AI.

Well, I am not serious. You don’t have to learn to build robots to survive in the future, but the bots for your company. Some software can help you with that and they are complicated, but this skill can future proof your resumes.

VIRTUAL REALITY (VR):

Brands like Asian Paints have already adopted this technology. I love the idea of the virtual world showcasing reality.

Psychiatrists are using this technique on their patients and making them face their fears.

But this is just the beginning, what do you think VR can do in the coming 10 years?

GOOGLE AND SOCIAL MEDIA’S ALGORITHM

Do we know how the algorithm works? Or do we just have an idea of how it works?

Everybody has their own set of theories about the algorithm, but if we can find the truth about it?

How it works and how can we use it for our benefit?

But don’t you think about fooling the algorithm, as you can’t do that now so forget about doing that in the future when it will be stronger than ever.

MARKETING:

The market is so huge and has so many options to explore and experiment with for literally everything. This skill is here for eternity. The more you master this skill, the better for you.

But marketing is not just about the experience and knowledge about how it works, but also about learning every new skill and trend that can help you and your brand.

MIND READING:

Am I coming up as a psycho? Well, I hope not.

But I think this is the fantasy of everyone to be able to read someone else’s mind.

And what if people can be able to do that?

Just imagine the future where you can read your customer’s mind, JUST IMAGINE.

Well, who had thought the people would be talking to the machines, but here we are.

Thank you, Siri, and Alexa, the only women that listen to everyone no matter what.

Personalized Social platforms for brands:

With all the available platforms people have already become very nosy, they want to know about everything every time. And who won’t like to be updated and talk about their favorite brand on a common platform? Yes, on social media we already can stalk the brand’s business page and their insights, but we are talking about the bigger picture here. A brand having its social platform, where one can talk about, know about, and communicate with the people who carry the same interest as you.

TEAM PLAYER:

This skill is necessary to survive in business and life ever since, and it will be as important as it is now in the future also.

With all the competition, well-skilled team members and their difference of opinions one should be able to work with the team in all conditions. You don’t have to be a leader, but you will have brownie points if you have the skills and qualities of a leader.

TECH LITERACY:

Whichever field you are from, you can’t afford to be technically challenged. I am that kind, I can’t reboot my computer or update it on my own. But in the future how can one survive like this if he doesn’t even know this bit of technology?

DIGITAL MARKETING FOR EVERYONE:

Every person should be able to know and master at least one skill of digital marketing because the future is digital.

CREATIVE MINDSET:

How far do you think you would be able to march without creativity? Not very long my friend.

A creative mindset is a god’s gift to some people but what about others? How will they compete with the creative mind? Hard work and the keenness to learn about things can teach you anything you want. Once I tried to bend the spoon just by staring at it, and boom I made a fool out of myself in front of my whole crazy family.

STORYTELLING:

From kids to adults everyone loves to hear good stories. And storytelling is the most underrated skill in today’s world but it is booming. If you are a good storyteller, you can be a good seller too.

UX DESIGN:

User Experience Design, a skill that not many of us are aware of but is high in demand.

A process of conveying something to the audience by sharing your product with meaning.

From above it all looks like graphic designing and photoshop to those who don’t know much about it. But it is a different thing and holds an extremely high value in the future.

THOUGHT LEADERSHIP:

Leadership with the only motto to listen to the problem of their audience and to solve them. Who believes in inspiring others and working for them. To read more about it you can check out our other blog here.

Conclusion: With the world pandemic who thought this would the end of the world?

My mother thought that and it was scary to see her scared. But now we have adjusted ourselves with the guidelines of COVID-19 it started to seem all normal and now we have the vaccine also. So, the point is we are here for a very long long time and to survive we need to future proof our resumes with booming skills.

The above-mentioned skills are already in high demand and they can give the market a complete make-over. Today’s market and marketing style won’t even exist in 2031. So to survive in the future one needs to keep learning the new skills, the skills that are already booming.

A lot can happen over a decade, right?
