The dawn of 5G is driving massive shifts throughout job markets in both the private and government sector.
While some people fear this will eliminate jobs (i.e., computers doing the work for people), this revolution is creating different jobs. In other words, 5G is changing the nature of work, requiring brand new skill-sets for unique disciplines in their earliest stages.
Don’t just take our word for it: business experts cite 5G creating 4.6 million related jobs through 2034. Moreover, the technology is already responsible for creating over 100,000 new employment opportunities.
So, what are the types of jobs that will become most prevalent as the 5G era becomes more ubiquitous and all-encompassing? Read below to find out:
In a world where temperatures continue to rise and precipitation levels continually shifting in wet and dry areas, the future of precision agriculture relies on the following:
● An interconnected system of low power sensors
● Integrated equipment
The above components will be powered by 5G to monitor field conditions and extract the most yield value. Furthermore, the advanced technology will allocate scarce resources (e.g., water) proficiently and accurately.
These advancements will require the industry to construct and cultivate a bolstered tech and telecom infrastructure. Naturally, this would necessitate an appropriate workforce–which exists but is only in its infancy. For the most part, expect job growth in software development and equipment installation/maintenance fields.
Transportation and logistics
With 5G, goods and the people moving them will experience a point-to-point transportation transformation.
As a result, the transportation, logistics, and delivery industries will all be significantly impacted.
Expect low-latency 5G connections to speed up the fully autonomous truck and car roll-out. While driver jobs will take a hit—this shift doesn’t mean eliminating all jobs in this space, though. Because people will be needed to maintain exponential safety standards. As such, more jobs will be created for skilled technicians.
Jobs in maintenance and road work will also open up because 5G will allow traffic signals to be based on real-time flow. For instance, Pittsburgh’s new smart traffic lights cut travel times by 25%.
Construction has been hampered by halted productivity and increased costs over the past few decades. It’s then unsurprising to hear the industry has failed to keep up with the digital revolution.
The introduction of 5G into this space involves the grid that catalyzes automated equipment integration seamlessly and flexibly. Of course, this means hiring talent who can operate the technology, streamline builds, and reduce dangerous mistakes.
On top of that, such workers – through their 5G expertise – will reduce construction costs, boost demand, and expedite new-build/renovation schedules.
The obstacles preventing you from hiring talented candidates can be leveled. However, you might need some help along the way, given how busy you are dealing with your organization’s other facets. Contact Anistar Technologies today for your infrastructure recruitment needs.
