I decided to join the Throwback Thursday Link Party hosted by Part-Time Monster, Adventures of a Jayhawk Mommy and The Qwiet Muse again. The idea is to put up a link to a post that is at least 30 days old. The other times I joined I went back exactly one or two years. This time I picked something almost at random.
It is possible for almost every job to be automated out of existence. As employers think of employees more as costs than as assets, it might not be that far down the road before your boss replaces you with a computer program or a robot. This isn’t science fiction, it has been happening pretty much forever, but the rate of being replaced by technology is increasing exponentially. In the past it was mostly manual labor, then blue collar. Now white collar jobs and management positions are at risk. If you are starting out in the world today, were do you see yourself in 20 years when 75% of job positions now available are gone? That is something I looked at back in October of 2014.
