Goodbye, career!

Ambitious expectations of building a career are on their way out - by 2040 it won’t make sense to anyone. The emphasis is shifting towards small business and freelance. According to futurologists, these forms of business will form the basis of the world economy, rather than multinational corporations.

The very nature of work will change: instead of monotonous day-to-day work, the labor market will opt for people who work part-time in several places and on certain projects lasting from several days to several months. Everyone will be able to regulate the intensity of their working life: it may be one or two projects in six months, or five or six or more per month.

In this regard, traditional offices and associated infrastructure will be gradually substituted by new formats – co-working and anti-cafes - where business, communication and food intake all happen in the same room.

Big business will have to think not only of searching for competent professionals, but also of ensuring the security of corporate information. After all, no one can guarantee that the contracted employee does not work at the same time for a dozen of its competitors.

Ryan Sun Actually, countries are biggest companies in the world, and the governments are leaders of the companies. And everything countries do is to cultivate workers for themselves to compete with other rivals. Thus, in my opinion, the first thing that happened in the future might be the intergration of countries and the formation of a unified economic framework.
