Will the jobs of 2021 look anything like the jobs of 2000? Will the jobs ten years from now look anything like the jobs of today?
The answer is no.
The skills divide is widening at such a rapid pace, that training and access to skilled talent has been unable to catch up and bridge the divide.
Check out an excerpt from a Business Wire article, written in 2020, which talks about the jobs of the future and how freelancing fits into today’s gig economy and tomorrow’s workforce.
Payoneer today issued its Freelancer Income Report based on a survey of over 7,000 freelancers from 150 countries, providing new insight into the world of freelancers, their motivations and how this unique workforce empowers global collaboration by connecting top talent with businesses anywhere in the world. The report tells the story of an ambitious and courageous workforce that is unwilling to settle for the status quo. Freelancing’s popularity is attributed to the potential for greater job opportunity, independence, higher incomes and a promising move in the direction of wage equality.

Today’s gig economy – powered by social media, global marketplaces and online payment platforms – equips the global workforce with all the tools needed to chart their own career path, leveraging a freelance work lifestyle to build a full-time career, a “side-hustle” or even just extend their career post-retirement.
“The freelancing economy has grown exponentially over the past decade, and I believe we can now firmly say that the future of work has arrived. Obstacles that could slow or hinder freelancers’ ability to grow, connect and be successful have been removed,” said Scott Galit, CEO, Payoneer. “Freelancers from all walks of life and every corner of the world are empowered to acquire work, set their own wages, market their skills, and get paid how and when they want. It’s our mission to take the complexity and anxiety out of international business for all parties, offering financial services that make it simple for people to take advantage of flourishing global opportunities, and to be a catalyst for businesses to easily acquire the best talent wherever they are and without borders.”
