I've been researching during the last year about the professional careers that could be tailored to young makers. Since 2015, we have taught digital fabrication to over one thousand teenagers. Their more common response is: I really love the space and the mood here but... I need to get a job as soon as possible.
What kinds of jobs will be available in the next decade? Are they fit for makers? We have surveyed over a hundred experts in digital fabrication, education and work trends to detect which skills will be demanded and which jobs will have a better perspective in the next decade.
All this information will be published in September in a report, available with Creative Commons license, and shared with all attendees.
