English: Ethnic composition of Muslim Americans, according to the Pew Research Center study of Muslim Americans in 2007 http://pewresearch.org/assets/pdf/muslim-americans.pdf. Note that the ethnic background of “White” mainly consists of respondents from a Arab region, “Black” are mainly African Americans, while “Asian” are mainly of Pakistani or South Asian descent (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

The Pew Research Center reports that most growth in recent years has been in occupations that require higher levels of education, training and experience – a trend that seems likely to continue.

Loke social skills, maths skills seem particularly important but don’t look to tomorrow’s jobs to be similar to today. As a Chartered Accountant, I expect demand for specialist accountancy skills but not for lower end clerks who will be engineered out by technology.

Thoughts?
