                                     Popular Future Jobs of Post-COVID

               How the pandemic has caused the future jobs is a very crucial issue. The workforce is automating
               faster than expected. Pandemic-related distruptions have accelerated the arrival of the future jobs.
               Businesses, governments and workers should plan to work together to implement a new vision for
               the global jobs.
               By 2025, it is possible to say that automation and digitisation will increase and this increase will
               have a great impact on new future jobs mushrooming. Due to the technology blended lifestyle,
               software engineers,  app developers,  information  security analysts, ophthalmologists,  dieticians
               and physical therapists will most probably gain popularity. In those years, most people will be
               working at their homes. Their online hours will increase and they will probably have visual defects
               after spending long hours in front of computers. Physical impairments, the lockdowns and isolated
               life will probably give rise to eating disorders. In addition to these possible changes, people will do
               their shoppings online sharing their personal information frequently and they will need help from an
               information security analyst in order to keep their personal information safe on the Net.

              2     People prevised the effects of pandemic beforehand.

              4     New future jobs will occur rapidly after the new fast-paced lifestyles.
              5     Information Security Analysts are the people who help to secure people’s personal
                 information surfing on the Net.
