Digital jobs are created through the application of information and communications technologies (ICT) to a new or existing activity or process. Digital jobs generally include performing information-based tasks that build the individual’s capacity for future work.
Digital jobs are not only limited to work within the IT industry (e.g. software development, hardware design, networking), but also includes work where ICTs enable workers to find paid work online (e.g. data entry, image categorization, graphic design, office assistance) as well as traditional jobs which have been increasingly enhanced by ICTs (including e-commerce platforms and on-demand services).
