The new Jobs Market will look very different - growth arising from engagement with the Emerging BOP Economies with demand for many new technology driven traded-services, in multi-dimensional tacit interactive jobs, in greening of business zones, for millions of existing jobs mix skills shortfall for care, teachers and ICT life-work skills in all jobs. The Jobs Market has already
changed radically, having been replaced essentially by a Service Economy. Products, such a mobile or cell phones, are now bought by customers for their services - the processes of ever increasing productisation, servitisation, custmisation and personalisation; now focusing on smartphone services including m-banking, m-commerce and internationally tradeable & education services on-the-move. Services, like Tourism, are changing radically too - now focused on Sustainability. Traditional Jobs are being replaced by Traded-Services direct-from-Home, globally traded-services starting with outsourcing, offshoring & homeshoring but in future increasingly adding New Ideas & New Ways to Trade. This will include Co-op Traded-Services for BOP (Bottom of Pyramid), under their Community Brands and through Community Outlets all around the world - via Sm'art Co-op Franchisors within Co-op Movement. This is the new social and cultural idea space towards which the VoxLabs® model is targetted. In this persuit we are focused on Virtual Communities within a Social Marketplace, as they learn to tap into their latent Diaspora demands. Most of us will need to change in one or more of a variety of ways - meeting a need to become fully ICT literate, to work online, to work-at-home (tele- homeworking), perhaps to change career paths or focus, to collectively form or join a Community Co-op, to embrace new ideas & new ways, to provide traded-services internationally. VoxLabs starts here with the Diaspora as main outlet for such local demand and believes that the future will be best addressed by Sm'art Communities, through the medium of Sm'art Co-ops; embodying a mixture of Community Art /Culture together with their local unique Servitised Skills base to serve their Diaspora Communities as they gain their own independence.

Today we see huge Job losses but there also exists equal or even greater Job opportunities, everywhere - where there are tens of millions of unfilled jobs in opportunities existing all around the world, many however requiring a new skills mix as yet not readily available due to growing numbers of people entering global economy, need for ever more languages and cultures understanding as increasingly the world embraces especially the M-Commerce era - with new products and

innovative services to meet new demands due to the internet explosion, increased awareness and requiring new models with affordable prices. VoxLabs® is on esuch model. This creates and presents a new, vast opportunity for inhabitants of the new Smart Economies. As we have seen from WHO & ICN Reports, there are 4 million Nurses required worldwide during this decade to meet unfilled demands in hospitals & wellness clinics, from homecare services providers and among healthcare contractors & recruiters. And these Nurses & Careworkers, we well as in other Life-Work, will increasingly require ICT know-how in what will be a very different technology driven healthcare & wellness future landscape. And ICT is where VoxLabs® starts its mission with TeleCare. And there where there is an estimated 30 million skilled ICT workers also needed in coming years to serve the Life-Work 100 marketplace - wherever the Smart Economy flourishes, being among Smart Communities everywhere. And again - where new skills are required, there are always Teachers required too. And there are countless millions of new spin-off jobs and trades in form of MSME Traded-Services required too - these being the foundation stones of most Knowledge, Innovation & Smart Economies everywhere. Add to that all the skilled workers in over 100 career paths that we can identify, including those in demand for the Greening of Business worldwide - and we can see the shape of a rapidly changing marketplace as we move to address the pace of change. This is all part of a latent demand (both known and unknown) yet to be matched to supply skills and in new ways as never before. All in an era where we no longer can rely on Universities to fill marketplace demand, as product and service life cycles grow ever shorter than University qualification timeframes. New ideas and new ways are required, and out there.
So what is the answer? The Solution lies in opportunities for people who learn to Work-at-Home - ranging from tele-care, tele-health, tele-teach, tele-sales, tele-serve, tele-coach, social finance to social commerce - be that as social franchisors, as borderless social emarketplace agents & affiliates; all becoming hallmarks of tomorrow's Innovation, for the Services, Smart & Social Economies. And New ideas are today being 'born global' - like never before, going global simultaneously as VoxLabs itself did in 40 countries during original development stage;- just look at Social Networking & Social Media today (aka. Facebook, LinkedIn etc) with the innovative Social Marketplaces (aka. eBay, Amazon, Google) as they now expand in scale and scope to meet tomorrow's needs and wants. And that rate of change is accelerating rapidly too. This is indeed a New World, and a New Way.
The first step is the hardest step for any Community or person willing to embrace these changes, but not taking that step is also making a choice, to be left behind. The day of relying on the big Multi-National Corporations (MNC's) coming to town, bearing jobs, only to watch them increasingly leave soon again taking your jobs and crushing your dreams with them are consigned to the past. There is another way. Today's model replacement is already there, called a GIE (Globally Integrated Enterprises), and can be seen to be as borderless corporation; one without allegiance to anyone or anyplace - where they increasingly just source jobs and products/ services wherever its cheapest or those with best offer that day, week, month. GIE's have a new business language and capability, reverse auctioneering, to ensure they get the best prices on any given day. That change, that threat is also a unique opportunity for those who see it and prepare to embrace it. Size, money, distance is not an impediment any more. In a reality never seen before we are getting more and more dependent on ourselves and our own Community collectively for survival and prosperity. Increasingly Smart Communities the world over will all start to compete on a new level playing field with each other. That's both a threat and also a great opportunity for Inter-Community cooperative trading in traded-services, and not just products anymore.
And such Communities Co-ops will take on new and many varied shapes tomorrow - virtual Cities, Regions, Countries, Cultures, Colleges, Corp & College Alumni, Affinity Groups, Clubs, Co-ops, Credit Unions, Lifestyle Orgs, Social Networks/ Groups, Diaspora, or any Community Centre - all to be virtually connected; all being Communities themselves with trading capability, all capable of providing their own global Community Traded-Services, Brands & Outlets.
