The World Economic Forum recently estimated that 65 percent of children in school today will do jobs that currently don’t exist, a stat that prompted AKQA London to come up with a series of conceptual images fantasizing the jobs of future.

The AKQA team attended the World Economic Forum, making notes of how a high profile panel visualized futuristic jobs, which include fancy roles like Landfill Recycler, Blockchain Banking Engineer, National Identity Conservationist and other unheard titles, notes Design Boom.

Given the pace at which technology is reshaping societies, we could be seeing kids aspiring for these jobs as soon as by 2030.
