The jobs in greatest demand for 2022 (and those most at risk)

The digital transformation that some organizations have undertaken has become a key factor in the creation of new jobs. As companies digitize and automate their processes, the business demands different profiles to execute new tasks.

The Bank of Mexico (Banxico) estimates that the 65% of all employment in the country it is at high risk of being automated.

But the rapid advancement of technology is not only transforming jobs, it is also creating new positions with high demand. According to an analysis by ManpowerGroup’s Talent Solutions firm, the roles that are gaining more relevance in organizations are linked to technological competencies.

According to the analysis, five jobs Booming due to the digitization of businesses and that will be more offered next year are:

  1. Data Scientist Analyst
  2. Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Specialist
  3. Big Data Specialist
  4. Specialists in strategy and digital marketing
  5. Project automation specialist.

“In the country, the shortage of personnel with this new profile is concentrated in key sectors such as Logistics and Manufacturing, both report great difficulty in recruiting the right candidate,” said ManpowerGroup.

According to the study The journey to the hybrid organization of NNT Data México, 53% of large companies in Latin America are implementing automation strategiesThis is largely due to the fact that eight out of 10 organizations perceive these projects as key to the future of business.

The interest in investing in digital transformation projects is focused on the search for higher standards in implementing technologies such as robotic process automation (RPA), chatbots and big data in the short term. This trend is demanding new specialized talent And, at the same time, it is causing some roles to lose demand.

In this sense, the firm identified that the positions with less relevancein front of digitization and automation are:

  1. Data capture wizard
  2. Administrative and executive secretaries
  3. Accounting staff
  4. Assembly and factory workers
  5. Managers of business services and administration.
