The world’s richest man has offered some career advice for wannabe billionaires.
Bill Gates — the founder of Microsoft — has predicted which three skills will be in high demand in the job market of the future.
According to Billionaire Bill, you need a basic grasp of science, engineering and economics to get ahead.
The man is reportedly set to become the world’s first trillionaire.
In fact, he has so much cash, he’s struggling to give it away, despite his best charitable efforts.
So we’ll definitely take his advice.
According to the software expert, you don’t need to be a complete computer whiz either, you just need a basic understanding of how math and science works.
Speaking to LinkedIn executive editor Daniel Roth, Gates said: “I do think of basic knowledge of the sciences, math skills, economics — a lot of careers in the future will be very demanding for those things.
“It’s not necessarily that you’ll be writing code, but you need to understand what can engineers do and what can they not do.”
It might be too late for some of us to go back to the books, but it’s good advice to share with the younger generation.
The Sun Online has been asking readers if they are a “sexist parent” who could be unintentionally stopping their daughter from becoming a tech billionaire.
A recent study found that parents were biased when steering their children into certain careers.
