  • Social Relationships: There is a human domain that robots and artificial intelligence are almost inaccessible to social relationships. People with this skill are likely to be favored by their managers and customers because of their finishing and solution-oriented nature. Keep in mind that the two most important criteria in social relationships are empathy and being a good listener. Family participation activities are very useful in acquiring these skills.
  • STEM Skills: Represented by the initials of science, technology, engineering, and math skills. It is useful to remember that these fields will always be in demand and individuals with these skills will be sought after.
  • SMAC Skills: Just like STEM, this phrase is an acronym for social, mobile, analytics, and cloud. Those who develop their skills in the aforementioned fields have the potential to become prominent people for the professions of the future.
