However, what we always say within our business is that the fundamentals of work have not changed. It's about finding great people for our clients and is still on finding a suitable opportunity for candidates, "she says.

"AI will be able to do a lot, but who can understand the nuances, how it works will be critical.We are talking about race (science, technology, engineering, mathematics), but it has passed Steam (adding art) because of the art of creativity technology and science. Who can think differently, with different personalities, who can lead teams – soft skills will be really important in the future. "
If you look at jobs in the future, no one can say exactly what they are going to be but some traditional roles will stand the test of time, according to Ms. Lynch.
"After 2008, the entire industry collapsed and we lost a lot of skills in the world as well as those who moved from engineers to the IT world, many of them will never return to construction, and together with the engineers Ireland and other organizations emphasized that once the economy starts again, lack ".

"
