Lockdown has given us a lot of time to think about the future, where we are heading and what our dream careers would be.

We might not realise it, but a lot of new jobs have been created that did not even exist 30 years ago because of how fast technology and social media is developing. For example, mobile App Developers (people who design and code apps for mobile phones), create technology that is part of our everyday life, but it’s a relatively new job which is continuing to evolve!

In the space of 10 years, a whole new range of jobs have been created, and no doubt in another 10 years we will be seeing new jobs as well because we keep evolving and so does technology. It is predicted that in 10 years’ time, 50% of jobs will be changed by automation, 5% of jobs will be eliminated and that 9 out of 10 jobs will be digital.

THIS IS HOW is a podcast exploring digital roles, with insider tips from industry experts within some of today’s most influential brands. Co-hosts Alex Powis and Bwalya Newton interview the people working at the companies you know, in the jobs you might not, about how their skills play a vital role within the digital industry.

In every episode, they deep dive into a different job role, exploring the guest’s education, experience and career history, giving insight into what’s needed to get to where they are.

You can visit the THIS IS HOW website to learn more about the skills required for these roles, access advice from industry experts and find out what job role could be right for you; you can also participate in the THIS IS HOW quiz to find out jobs which might suit you!

What digital job do you see yourself doing in the future?

On her radio show, Eartha Stasaityte asked you if you know what job you want to do when you're older, and listener Mike revealed that he's found a pathway in Maths that he could have never imagined before.

Broadcasted exclusively worldwide on W!ZARD Radio Station.
