Along with technology skills, one needs to have the below mentioned set of skills as well :


In the workplace, many tasks will become automated and more efficient due to new technologies,  which requires new ways of thinking and accomplishing tasks. Therefore, ability to use these technologies to identify and solve problems is a crucial skill.

Businesses would need workers who can think, predict and will have to solve problems that don’t even exist yet. Future problems might be to fix a technological fault, or to deal with wider issues such as environmental issues or in developing a sustainable business model.


Don't be as a "Frog in the Well , Think out of the Box" aren't enough to be creative. Creativity is not just for musicians or artists, it is important for whatever role you take in life at job. Add a flavor of creativity into every simple task you take, this can help to transform things and create something great.

The priorities of organisations are always changing to meet customer demands and so their requirement for being creative will be on higher side. Show them that you can think creatively and you’ll certainly be more employable.

Critical thinking

The significance of it is growing rapidly at workplace.

A great critical thinker has to be logical and reasoned too or else what’s the use in ideas that aren’t practical?

Data Science is one technology on which the future of every company is depending on.


Employers want innovation and a continual stream of exciting new ideas and ways of approaching their products and services, whether it can be in Banking & Finance or Information Technology or any Service sector. Innovative ways of thinking are what drive businesses forward.

Employers look for people who can master new technologies, understand and solve complex new problems or come up with new ideas to help their businesses stand out from the rest in the market.


The workplace is always changing and this means that companies are looking for people that can adapt to these trends and work with new systems. You'll have to adapt to your role, the business and any new changes in the working environment. There is no other way than adapting to the change or else you are out of the league.


This is all about doing more with less. Businesses want to get the most for their money, so they’ll favor the employees who understand their requirements and help company to achieve its goals.

Everything is in a stage of evolving, so you should be. Be smart and take care of your career to face the future work requirements.
