Crafting Vietnam’s Future Workforce Skills

Ginni Rometty, former IBM CEO, advocates for a skills-first hiring approach where competencies surpass traditional credentials. The evolving job landscape, shaped by AI advancements, demands continual skill adaptation. As Rometty anticipates a potential devaluation of degrees, championing skills-focused programs, the discourse on AI’s influence on hiring and education gains momentum.

“When generative AI fully integrates into the workforce, it will put a premium on soft skills like collaboration, judgment, and critical thinking. These are what humans do best, and they’re often skills-built, not degrees-built,” Rometty pointed out. “People can upskill when generative AI redefines what skills are needed for any role—despite where you went to college or what expertise you have going into it.”

The World Economic Forum’s Future of Jobs 2023 report envisions a recalibration of in-demand skills by 2027.

Analytical and creative thinking, coupled with AI and big data expertise, claim top positions. The report accentuates the pressing need for adaptability and training, with 44% of workers facing disruption in core skills. As soft skills gain prominence, the report echoes Rometty’s call for lifelong learning. Where do you stand on AI reshaping the job market and education?
