Big Data, AI, Machine-Learning Are Shaping the Future of Jobs

Job descriptions like walker/talker, fitness commitment counsellor, digital tailor, ethical sourcing manager, AI business development manager and man-machine teaming manager are among the low-to-mid technology jobs that are expected to be on the HRā€™s radar in the next five years.

These jobs share the common theme of Coaching, Caring and Connecting: Coaching being the human ability to help others get better at life; Caring being the human endeavour of improving peopleā€™s health; and Connecting being the intellectual leverage only humans can bring in connecting man with machine, traditional with shadow IT, physical with virtual, and most importantly, commerce with ethics.

It’s Time to Ditch the Work Silosā€”for Real

My latest for LinkedIn Pulse uses Daniel Pink’s “Motivation 3.0” (autonomy, mastery and purpose) to promote collaboration. Diversifying can move you toward a more collaborative and service-oriented approach to engagement.

At TechSoup, I led a team of experts to position the forum as a global resource for nonprofits, as well as aĀ content partner for Microsoft, Adobe, Cisco and Box. The spirit of collaboration was baked into everything we did. Published via LinkedIn on Nov 2, 2017.

Lewis Haidt, TechSoup

Chris reported to me as forum community manager, working directly with myself and others across the engagement team to position the forums as a resource for the organization.

Chris demonstrated excellent people skills, managing our forum moderators, all of whom are experts in their fields. Chris worked directly with forum moderators in the discovery process, soliciting feedback on how to better engage and include users in our engagement strategies. Chris demonstrated flexibility with frequently-shifting priorities, jumping between tasks and mindsets as needed to keep projects moving. Chris co-developed a business case analysis for forums integration with a new community technology platform, an analysis which considered expert content streams, innovative crowdsourcing techniques, and cross-sector partnerships. Chris also contributed content and is an excellent editor and documentarian.

Chris clearly has a passion in working for organizations using technology for social good. I would recommend Chris for a community, social or content position.

Jeffrey M. Otto, PhD, Genaissance Pharmaceuticals

As we made the transition to a clinical laboratory, Chris quickly adjusted to the stringent laboratory parameters from which we needed to operate. He designed and executed quality control experiments to maintain the integrity of DNA plate and related reagent stocks. He was also active in creating and proofing deparment protocols on a regular basis. With his consistent sunny personality and well-developed interpersonal skills, Chris was able to clearly communicate his ideas and opinions to the necessary people.

Chris is a hard working, goal-oriented individual with well developed laboratory and communication skillsā€¦ a fine candidate for either a laboratory technician or technical writing position. I recommend him without reservation.
