Updating your skills for your future job

The future of work will soon become "the survival of the most adaptable," says Paul Mason, emerging technologies director for Innovate UK. As new technologies fundamentally change the way we work, the jobs that remain will be multifaceted and changeable.
"Workers of the future will need to be highly adaptable and juggle three or more different roles at a time," says McGowan, head of enterprise new markets for General Assembly. So ongoing education will play a key role in helping people develop new skills.
People will need to consistently retrain to keep up-to-date with the latest technological advances, as jobs are increasingly automated and workers are made redundant. "There will be constant new areas of work people will need to stay on top of. In 2050 people will continually need to update their skills for jobs of the moment, but I have an optimistic view that there will continue to be employment if these skills are updated" adds McGowan.
"This means the workforce is more likely to shift towards more part-time, freelance-based work," says Lindsay, chief executive of iOpener Institute. "Employers won't think in terms of employees – they'll think in terms of specialisms. Who do I need? And for how long?"

Adapted from: https://www.theguardian.com/careers/2016/oct/13/will-jobs-exist-in-2050
A: Working positions and skills will become more flexible in the future.
B: It is essential to upgrade your skills for new areas of work.
C: Workers have lost their jobs because technology is too difficult for them.
D: Jobs will be for shorter periods and more flexible.
E: Employers will offer part-time jobs only to the workers they know.
F: The workforce will be hired only if they are retrained and specialized in a specific field.
