Future Jobs Design Program

Challenge old-school creative roles and make work change for you!

The Future Jobs Design Program is back this fall to support creative talents’ transition towards new career roles and helps them identify, measure and deploy their capabilities to meet the hybrid workforce requirements of the future.

Who is this program for?

This program is for every curious, motivated and visionary individual looking to creatively transform the world by making the best out of their abilities. It is for anyone with working experience and who are looking to learn about the future of work and the pivoting roles they can access thanks to their creative skills. It is for the risk-takers who want to design work opportunities and act on aligning their talents with a tangible need.

Program overview

This hybrid edition of the program will be delivered both online and on-site and will take you on a 4-week journey of self-discovery and career repositioning. Starting with evaluating and measuring your skills, moving to an assessment of your abilities and knowledge and finally sketching a pivot for your career using your transferable skills and skills foresight.

In three online sessions we will focus on self-reflection, exploration and ideation, via one-on-one interactions and teamwork, and you will receive feedback aimed at enabling your true potential to design your optimal career path.

The Program will culminate with a live session in Rome, where you will have the opportunity to define your next career pivot with the support of your peers and mentors. You will have 2 days to explore inspiring locations in the city and prototype, and use sketching to present final ideas.

The rise of a new era in human capital

Before COVID-19, 29% of business leaders were focused on reimagining work and improving employee experience; today, this number has risen to 61%. The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the rise of a new era in human capital and talent acquisition, where the increased digitization of businesses and the development of technologies like 5G, AI, virtual and augmented reality, and blockchain call for a hybrid workforce, needed to perform tasks that require both human and technical skills.

Continual reinvention

As technological development will constantly reset the way forward, you will need to sustain a permanent state of continuous professional reinvention to future proof your career. To help you thrive in this rapidly changing world of work, we created the Future Jobs Design Program, a mix of design thinking and strategic foresight to align your natural rhythm with a new work-life equation.

“For the past 15 years of my career, being a hybrid creative has proven to be a challenge. I'm incredibly grateful to have taken part in the Future Jobs Design program which helped me to embrace, celebrate and empower the hybrid creative in me.”

—Alexandre Nobre

“It’s really rare to have a dedicated space and time to discuss change and Dalia did a very good job in providing that and the language to talk about these things. This experience has made the future feel more real and brought it into the now, for us to do something about it.”

—Salem Paulos

“I particularly enjoyed the build more questions part. This session makes one more mindful of one’s thoughts and ideas. It gave me a sense of wonder just enough to be critical but not too much to overanalyze things. This is a brain booster, I must say.”
