The future of work: jobs in the knowledge economy
There is no question that Australia and the rest of the world are shifting to knowledge work. Jobs that have been expanding over the past 15 years have been in health, education and professional services. Jobs that have been contracting have been in manufacturing and agriculture. The common denominator here is knowledge workers, jobs that either require a university degree or technical training.
This skill set is called STEM, science, technology, engineering and maths.
