What will the CV of 2030 look like?

What will the CV of 2030 look like?
Items on the imagined 2030 CV include:
·               Anonymous ID number + personal imprint
·               Practical experience working with chatbots and human interface technology
·               Advanced Learning Ability Score (/100)
·               Social Impact Rating (/10)
 
Trend 1: Automation
With increased automation, the new jobs landscape will emphasise how people and machines can work most effectively together to complement each other’s skills.
Employees will have to display strong human-to-machine (H2M) communication skills, including the technical ability to work with all forms of automation, AI and robotics – listing practical experience working with non-human ‘colleagues’ and automated systems. Technical qualifications and certifications in these areas will be ‘the new diploma’.
 
Trend 2: Liquid Skills
As technology continues to change the workforces, employees will need to work flexibly and learn quickly – acquiring new skills, dropping old ones and continually updating their skillset to stay relevant.
CVs will need to show a vast array of technical and human skills which could be applied to any role, and single specialism, long-term degrees will be replaced by multiple, shorter-length ‘nano-degrees’. With learning ability a valuable attribute, a scoring system might develop to differentiate candidates. 
Trend 3: Bio-hacking
To compete with the computing power of machines, some workers may choose to augment or upgrade their minds and bodies. A future awaits in which smart implants, DNA-derived treatments, high-performance prosthetics and memory-enhancing components are commonplace, and CVs boast of the latest ways candidates have bio-hacked their skillsets.
