In a Creative Society, all basic material needs are covered: everyone receives an unconditional basic income, has free housing provided by the state, medicine and education are also free and generally available. By and large, a person may not work at all and live comfortably on their basic income. However, firstly, a person can’t sit idle, and secondly, we are always want more, and for this more we have to earn money. These are the two main reasons for looking for a job in a Creative Society. This raises two questions: what do I want to work for, and what can I be offered?
A Creative Society is a society of unlimited opportunities: if you want to work or not, and if you still want to work, there are plenty of job options.
All the hard, boring, monotonous work will be done by robots. You won’t find such jobs as handyman, cashier, salesman, security guard, packer, courier, call-center operator or bank teller – even a robot can do that.
Everything is left for people to do! Just imagine: everything you dreamed about in your childhood can come true in a Creative Society!
Only those spheres of activity are meant for people, in which they can realize themselves and get moral satisfaction from their work, from the awareness of its importance and usefulness:
1) for the most communicative – organization of everything you want, from experts in talent search and development to space guides, and do not forget about communicators between robots and people;
2) for the eager to learn – science, research and development. If you imagined a laboratory with flasks and thought that physics and chemistry are not for you, here are some examples of professions in this area: weather control engineer and climate change specialist, expert in exact prediction of earthquakes and designer of extraterrestrial settlements, biopharmacologist and cosmobiologist, and many more fascinating things;
3) for lovers of technology – development and maintenance of robots and mechanisms (engineers, operators and designers of cyber-organisms, for example; traffic controllers of unmanned transport (land, air, water and even underground));
4) for those who want to help people – medicine and education (remote surgery operators and IT doctors, deferred aging managers and genetic counselors, nanocosmetologists and bioethicists, and interdisciplinary knowledge integrators and mindfulness trainers);
5) for risk-takers – rescuers and instant responders, spacecraft crews and explorers of other planets;
6) for the refined and creative – all kinds of art and creativity, including design and architecture, as well as mass media;
7) for the strong and active – sports and tourism;
8) for those who are keen on programming – creation of IТ-solutions, management of automated complexes, work with artificial intelligence;
9) for nature lovers there will even be professions such as specialists in the revival of extinct species and engineers in the field of synthetic biology.
The list does not end here! In the Creative Society, everything is limited solely by your imagination and the desire to make even your wildest dreams come true. Anything you propose and want can be realized if it benefits society.
In the Creative Society, free education and short hours provide more opportunities to gain new knowledge and skills. You can change careers as many times as you want – there are so many exciting things to do!
