Vassil Kirov talks about skills and labour shortages on Bulgarian National Radio

SkiLMeeT researcher Vassil Kirov, a professor from the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, was interviewed by Bulgarian National Radio. He stressed that the main problem for the European labour market is not the technology-driven destruction of jobs but the shortage of skills and labour.

Vassil Kirov said that contrary to earlier predictions that computers would render half of jobs obsolete within a couple of decades, Europe is now witnessing high employment, with a shift towards new professions, rather than massive unemployment.

He also shed light on the disappearance of traditional roles alongside the emergence of innovative professions within the online sphere. This means workers must equip themselves with additional skills through education and training to succeed in a rapidly changing job market fuelled by technological advances. The integration of technology optimises repetitive tasks, signalling a shift towards more sophisticated and creative job roles.
