Resumen : Technological change has always had a strong influence on the economy. ln the case of the lnformation and Communications Technologies (ICT), their incessant penetration has transformed traditional wo.-ldng places, such as the office. Although many white collar activities have survived given the enduring reliance on qualified stllff with abundant skills and experience, they now seem at risk due the progressive automation of clerical work. These trends are not exclusive of industrialized nations, though. Then, we pose the following question: to what extent is teehnological change affecting skilled jobs in developing nations too, and more specitically in Mexico? In attempting to answer this question, we examine the impact of ICTs on six skilled jobs in Mexico City: tlata entry keyers, photographers, computer systems analysts, messengers, stenographers and lathe operators. We found that traditional occupations have indeed disappeared, whcreas specialized manufacturing jobs, such as lathe operators, seem to be still required by the market, although in a lesser cxtent. We conclude that jobs are no longer defined by traditiunal skills but by multitasks abilities, especially in ICTs.
