In this study, we will introduce new jobs that could be expected to emerge in the S&T area. At first, the overall process to find new emerging jobs would be introduced, and methodologies to find new jobs in terms of their promising level and to investigate their competencies would be shown. The new emerging jobs list as the result of this study would be presented at the end.

The first process to mine new emerging jobs is the diagnosis of future issues. The social gap is selected as the issue of 2015 in that it is one of the most influential factors that would threaten and demolish our future society. In this study we have focused 4 areas in various social gaps. The second step is to set the definition of the word, ‘the new job’ and ‘the new emerging job’. The third is to mine new job candidates and to find out the very new emerging jobs to relieve the social gap in 4 areas. In this study, we found 1,010 candidates as new jobs from the job database and literature researches and selected 135 candidates which are directly related to the future issue, the social gap. 135 candidates, again, compressed to 30 new jobs that would reduce the social gap in each area by FGI composed of S&T specialists and employment experts. We found out, finally, 15 new emerging jobs in each area through the investigation of their promising level by the survey, and these would be presented later.

Two methodologies are used to mine 15 new emerging jobs and their core competences. The analysis of promising levels enables to choose 15 new emerging jobs among 30 candidates, and the analysis of core competences gives the important information about jobs. All analyses are based on the survey results targeting specialists and experts in each job area. The promising level, at first, is observed by 5 points of views; the necessity of professional knowledge, the employment stability, the income, the demand of job in the future market, and the social status. The second analysis is about core competencies of each emerging jobs based on an integrated model that we construct. The model is composed of 3 standards (Knowledge, Abilities and Characteristics) and their sub-indexes, and these standards and sub-indexes are restructured by compromising standards and indexes that have used at career information researches and institutes such as O*Net, KEDI (Korea Education Development Institute), and DOL (Department of Labor) of other countries.

Based on the process and methodologies mentioned above, we have proposed 15 new emerging jobs in the future. These jobs would be expected to relieve the social gap in 4 areas; the health and medical (HM), the information and communication (IC), the energy (EN) and the education/culture (EC). 4 new emerging jobs that would reduce the social gap in HM are the H&M big data analyst, the telemedicine coordinator, the smart healthcare service developer, the ultrasound screener. In IC area, the personalized data analyst, the IoT platform developer, the smart farming expert, the Li-fi specialist and the Fin-tech specialist would be emerged in the future. 4 jobs would be prospected to diminish the social gap in EN area, which are the energy harvesting expert, the zero-energy building designer and the new and renewable energy specialist. The smart education developer and the digital restore specialist of cultural heritages would weaken the social gap that would happen at educational and cultural area relatively.
