In 2006, Facebook and Twitter were just born, and nobody had iPhones. Ten years on, the world is a very different place. So is the workplace.

Jobs exist now that we never heard of ten years ago. One survey suggests that 65% of children entering primary school today will eventually end up working in completely new jobs.
App developer

The iPhone arrived in 2007 and the Android shortly after, and now nearly half the world’s adults have a smartphone. This has created a huge demand for apps: in July, 2015, Android's Google Play had 1.6 million apps while Apple’s App Store had 1.6 million. As a result, there is a booming market for app developers.

Uber driver

The app-based ride-sharing company was only founded in 2009, but has already grown to become the world’s most valuable start-up at $ 62 billion. In 2015,Uber doubled the number of active drivers in the US, and the company is announcing new services in cities around the globe. However, it seems that in the not-too-distant future the Uber driver may become a thing of the past 一 the company is eyeing up self-driving cars.

Driverless car engineer

While driverless cars will wipe out the roles of taxi drivers, they are also beginning to create some new jobs as well. Driverless cars won't be able to mend themselves, so engineers and software developers who work on vehicles will be increasingly in demand in the future.

YouTube content creator

Thanks to YouTube and other video-sharing websites that followed, videoblogging or “vlogging” is now a career,with the most successful YouTube stars attracting millions of dollars through advertising and social media management.
