Job Hacks to Level Up Your Career

How will hybrid careers shape the future industry 4.0? (6:58)

  1. Technology is reshaping the way work is done in more than 250 occupations, according to a study by the workforce research organization Burning Glass Technologies.

  2. The trend towards more nuanced, multi-skilled employment is not new—Burning Glass began monitoring it for the first time in 2015—but it is accelerating. The study estimates that hybrid jobs will grow by 21 per cent over the next decade, more than twice the overall labour market growth rate of 10 per cent.

"It's not about how hard you get hit. It's about how hard you get hit and keep moving forward. "

Example of Hybridization


Before you move on, download your copy of the Career Booster Toolkit.

Use this Toolkit to assess yourself and open up new opportunities, which you may not have noticed.

  • One example of hybridization: Mobile app developers, whose job didn’t even exist until the first smartphones came along a decade ago, might seem at a glance to require, like other software developers, mostly excellent coding skills.
  • However, designing mobile apps takes knowledge of programming. But it also requires user interface design, content, and marketing.

How can hybrid careers help you?

  • For people trying to plan a career in the throes of constant change, the rise of hybrid jobs is terrific in two ways.

    1. The more unusual combinations of skills employers need, the fewer qualified candidates they can find.
    2. Marketing managers with expertise in data analysis, for instance, often earn 40% more than those without it.

How the pandemic affected people? (14:25)

  • The pandemic and lockdown have left many with low self-confidence and struggling to find the self-motivation for work and other areas of their life.

  1. Identify negative self-talk
  2. Check-in with yourself
  3. Listen to what you’re saying to yourself
  4. Acknowledge yourself
  5. Try to introspect how you can turn a situation around
