In the recent survey completed by Infosys reports that almost half of today’s youth believe that their jobs could be gone in next 10 years. However, the youth of Brazil, India, and South Africa lead the world as the most confident emerging workforce, followed by China and the United States. The study examined 1,000 people per country aged 16 to 25 in Australia, Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, South Africa, the UK, and the US.


The report shows a substantial gap between the confidence of young people in middle-income nations and those of developed nations. Whilst 74% of Brazilians were either optimistic or very optimistic about their future, only about half of Europeans and Australians could say the same.

In the US, women were far more focused about international race than men. Young people extensively agree that globalization is the driving element for an, even more, aggressive job market. Countries, where tech jobs are in high charge, were unusually feeling the pressure. Germany and India both averaged 75%. Nearly three-quarters of French, Australian and British youth felt that they would not achieve the same levels of success, compared with only half of Indians, Brazilians and Chinese.

Self-confident in joining the workplace was again a perception shared mostly amid those in middle-income economies. The West, however, seems to be slipping back in this effort. According to the survey, a computer science or math degree was no more favorable in the office. In fact, there was no special knowledge that people felt had adequately prepared them for the constantly changing workplace of today.

Above two-thirds of respondents said that they had to acquire new skills in their current jobs. The number was leading in developed nations, rising to almost 80% in the United Kingdom, US, and Australia.

The need for learning skills such as communications, relationship-building and problem-solving is the most crucial aspect of the modern workplace. Employers expectations, as perceived by those surveyed, were also focused on soft skills. Although technical experiences were essential, time control, people management and dynamic learning were all deemed to be important.
