It's like I keep telling everyone. Jobs aren't going away... employers are.
That doesn't mean that we're looking at a future without jobs. It means we're looking at a future where the investors and the management overhead is mostly cut out of the picture. There will be groups of consultants that hire people, but these working groups will be small, and concise. Most work, at least as it relates to tech and service oriented work will be remote.
Massive corporations are going away. Nobody realizes it yet, but that's the trajectory we're on. The organizational structure doesn't make sense, and they won't be able to compete with well organized groups of consultants who can do the same jobs, for less money. These companies bleed money, and they simply won't be able to survive when the dynamic of the workforce changes, which it's already doing.
If we're lucky, we've got another eight years of "jobs" as we know them left. This is the time to invest in your future. Know your trade, build a social network. Broaden your skillset, and take some business and sales training. When the time comes, you're going to need to be able to articulate your unique value add, because you'll be competing on a global scale. But all is not lost, you can win this. There's huge upside opportunity for those that get serious now.
You can call me a communist, or a crazy man all you like. But this is where I see it going.
