As this article charges, a lot has changed over the last 10 years! The author points out that Instagram didn't exist, flip phones were the rage and people were rocking the jeggings. Ok, I do not remember jeggings, but I do remember calling my parents on a landline, collecting (and playing) CDs and sending a fax. Heck, Snapchat didn't even come along until 2011.
There are many new jobs that have been created during that time too. Here's a list of 10 examples:
- Drone operator
- App developer
- Uber/Lyft driver
- SEO specialist
- Social media influencer
- Social media manager
- Chief Listening Officer
- Millennial advisor
- Sustainability manager
- Anything in artificial intelligence
So, let's do some brainstorming on what jobs may be coming along in the global mobility space? Think about your mobility program, or your client's mobility program and consider what the biggest issues or gaps are.
Here you go, how about:
- Global mobility compliance manager/director
- Relocation technology manager/director
- Global mobility experience designer
- Mobile talent strategist
- GM duty of care specialist
- GM diversity officer
- GM data analyst
- Mobility program design specialist
- People and culture specialists
- Gig worker specialist
What others can you think of?
Let’s travel back in time a bit to 2008. Instagram was nonexistent (gasp), Motorola Razr flip phones were all the rage and the world was bumpin’ to “Low” by Flo Rida while rocking the fabulous jeggings and boho headbands combo. A lot has changed (thankfully) over the past decade, especially in the job industry. In fact, as of this spring, the unemployment rate in the United States is 4 percent, which is the closest it’s come to hitting an all-time low since the early aughts. That means that the job market is booming with a full spread of new opportunities.
