Employment Futures is a collaborative research project and speculative jobs report attempting to recreate the experience and anxiety of Job Hunting in 2027.
Employment Futures will consist of two ongoing initiatives:
1) Research on emerging machine-human interface technologies.
Phase 1: Assemble a growing collection of open-access articles, studies, news stories and press releases with a special emphasis on connecting existing Are.na content across disciplines.
Phase 2: Organize research into three distinct Are.na channels. Each channel will correspond to a specific job title for entry, mid and late-career level positions predicted for the year 2027.
2) Speculative Production
Phase 1: Drawing on our research and that of the community, we will produce several jobs-related documents including job postings, resumes and cover letters for each position.
Phase 2: We will produce a short video piece emulating the experience of three first interviews.
