#CreateACareer

According to futurists, 60% of the best jobs in the next 10 years haven’t been invented yet; If you could create a brand new job in Information Technology (I.T) for the future, what would it be and why? 

Challenge details



In the last ten years alone we’ve seen advances such as free software, 3D printing, and the explosion of social networking sites… and this is just the beginning. We're asking you to create a brand new job in I.T for the future! Think about all the different jobs that currently exist and consider any new jobs you think will be needed in a futuristic world.

Perhaps you would be a ‘Robot Consultant'; whose job it is to advise companies on how they could minimise staff costs by using robot technology, or maybe you can envisage 'Human Analysts' who track and monitor the movements of a micro-chipped generation?

Be as imaginative and innovative as possible but make sure that you address the below questions:

  • What is the job title?
  • What are the responsibilities?
  • Why is the job important?
  • Will the job overcome a current problem?
  • How will the job develop the Computer Science industry and the world in general?
     

The Prize


The winner(s) of the challenge will have the opportunity to participate in MISSION YOU, a one week programme for 14-18 year olds in the TCS offices in either London, Peterborough, Edinburgh, or Liverpool!
