5G should generate 670,000 new jobs by 2025
With the entry of 5G in Brazil, new jobs can be generated due to the new skills required. This has already started to happen with the installation of fifth generation telephony networks, which only begin to operate in the country's capitals in the second half of this year.
According to estimates by Conexis, which brings together telecom companies, and the Brazilian Association of Information and Communication Technology Companies (Brasscom), the expectation is that around 50 thousand new formal jobs will be opened in telephone companies alone, the which represents an increase of 10%.
In addition, investments by companies that will use 5G in different applications of the new technology may have an increase in the number of vacancies that exceeds 670,000 by 2025. Areas such as: data specialists, artificial intelligence, 3D printing and information security will be some of the most wanted workers.

The employment rate can grow more if we consider the movement of companies to hire professionals who are focused on the innovation that 5G brings. Institutions such as Fundação Getulio Vargas, PUC-Rio, ESPM and SoulCode Academy already develop specializations related to 5G.
Experts and companies say that topics such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, data (big data), databases, algorithms and the internet of things (IoT) will be highlighted in the daily lives of different types of professionals.
“This professional of the future will have to be a programmer, dealing with robots and measurement systems. The basic competence is knowing how to deal with digital devices. Everyone will have to enter this area and develop a kind of computational reasoning”, commented Sérgio Paulo Gallindo, president of Brasscom.
Telecommunications companies and their equipment suppliers are already hiring people to install cables and antennas for mobile telephony, which involves investments of almost R$ 40 billion in the coming years.
The idea is to guarantee a connection up to a hundred times faster than the current 4G. For example, Copel won licenses to bring 5G to the South and North regions, creating a board just for the topic with 50 dedicated professionals, according to Wendell Oliveira, the company's president.
