Digitalization has a global trend and has become a driver of competitiveness in the enterprise sector. The pandemic has forced governments and businesses around the globe to accelerate the transition to digital technologies. Due to those grand challenges, the labor market landscape and human resources policy priorities have undergone significant changes. New jobs, methods, and innovative practices have appeared under the influence of digitalization. In this research, we test how to apply large datasets of full-text documents (more than 1 million patents and Ph.D. theses) to find possible directions for transformation of working conditions and job-related changes. We have identified promising directions in terms of research and development and economy, which grew in 2020: agriculture machinery, pharmacology, diagnostic tools, logistics, and wireless technologies. Moreover, under those directions we have found some research and production centers, which we can consider potential producers and labour consumers. Russian federal and regional authorities might use results of our research to form personnel policies of regions and federal districts.
