Alexa, are you stealing my job?
73 million jobs in the U.S. may be automated by 2030.
Here are some ways you can prepare for our robot future.
Avoid Driving And Delivery Jobs
In the coming years, self-driving cars will be more science than science fiction.
Some major U.S. cities are already seeing driverless Ubers and Dominos delivery vehicles.
Many driving and delivery jobs will be replaced by automation.
Avoid Repeatable Task Based Jobs
Pay attention to the amount of self-checkout stations next time you go to the market.
Machines excel at performing repetitive tasks with greater speed and accuracy than humans.
Robots will probably take over most jobs in manufacturing, data entry, and retail with their steely hands and computer brains.
Which of these tasks is LEAST likely to be automated?
Manufacturing an automotive part
Stocking shelves in a warehouse
Creating a graphic design
Unleash Your Inner Artist
Machines can do a lot of things but they can't be creative.
Careers in design, writing, and the arts will likely escape automation.
Even less "artistic" creative careers, such as sales or social media management, will likely be safe from the robot hammer.
Flex Your Empathy Muscles
Jobs that require a human touch won't be going away any time soon.
Careers in mental health, health care, and education will be safe from the robot overlords.
Learn To Code
Someone has to program machines to do the jobs they will replace.
Why not you?
Careers in data science, machine learning, and product development will be around for a long time.
Learning about automation is important to stay up-to-date with industry trends.
Think about a career path you've been considering, and ask yourself:
