A report by the World Economic Forum has revealed that global employers plan to create 69 million jobs and cut 83 million by 2027. The findings highlight the impact of technological advancements, with 42% of tasks expected to be automated by 2027.
While the transition to renewable energy sources will lead to new job creation, the report predicts a net job loss of 14 million, or 2% of current employment. Data analysts, machine learning, and cybersecurity experts will see a 30% increase in employment, while secretaries or data entry workers will lose their jobs.

As we move towards a more technology-driven world, it is crucial to ensure that no one is left behind. We must work together to create a future where technological advancements lead to job creation and a better quality of life for all.
