10 jobs that didn’t exist 10 years ago

In 2006, Facebook was in its infancy, Twitter was being launched, and nobody had iPhones. Ten years on, the world is a very different place, and so is the workplace.

Jobs exist now that we’d never heard of a decade ago. One estimate suggests that 65% of children entering primary school today will ultimately end up working in completely new job types that aren’t on our radar yet.

This pace of change is only going to get faster thanks to rapid advances in the fields of robotics, driverless transport, artificial intelligence, biotechnology, advanced materials and genomics, according to the World Economic Forum’s latest annual Human Capital Index.

From Uber drivers to millennial generation experts, here’s a selection of 10 occupations that weren’t around in 2006.

  • App developer
  • Social media manager
  • Uber driver
  • Driverless car engineer
  • Cloud computing specialist
  • Big data analyst/data scientist
  • Sustainability manager
