The next era or 4.0 age are frequent buzzwords today. Human potential and human skills are the key to invention of new things through new knowledge generation and having great impact on the whole society at the end. People are increasingly concerned with their living and working in the time of big changes that require appropriate change management skills and overall flexibility. It is not easy to adapt to all of the global upcoming changes. Exploring the issue of how people adapt to these quick changes and thus change themselves gives us an opportunity to understand and develop future HR competitive strategy. In this paper the authors discuss the specificity of the next-generation jobs and the variety of skills needed for them. Comparative analysis carried out among ASEAN countries is presented. It takes into consideration not only the proximity of these countries’ location in relation to each other but also the peculiar factors of their economic development.
