The modern working world is undergoing radical changes, and factors such as demographic changes as well as automation will fundamentally alter the most in-demand position across all industries. In IU’s home country of Germany, the next 40 years will see 10.2 million fewer people of working age, leaving a huge gap in the labour market just waiting to be filled with qualified workers.
352 out of 801 occupations are currently facing skills shortages, with 55% of companies in Germany seeing this as a major risk. Most of these jobs are in the STEM and business industries, these industries have many occupations which are also among the least susceptible to automation, a staggering 79% of new job vacancies in 2018 were in areas facing shortages. That’s why they’re really is no time like the present to choose a degree that will work for you well into the future.
