8 occupations that will still be here in 20 years
Hey, don’t despair, I probably made a few of you cry in to your beer (or wine) the last time we talked about the future occupations – or rather those that won’t be around much longer.
So I thought I’d (try) and inspire you with 8 careers that will be around for along time…
#1 – Lawyers, who’d have guessed it, even with the progress of machine learning, until such time as the justice system decides humans can’t be relied upon to judge their peers. We will still need lawyers to argue the case in a court of law in front of human judges and twelve good wo(men).
#2 – Specialist physicians and surgeons, it’s a long way off before humankind will hand over physical intrusive operations on humans me thinks.
#3 – Registered nurses – yep, again AI is a long way off being able to have a good bedside manner (then again – have you met my doctor?), no robots won’t be watching over you – just yet.
#4 – Systems / App developers – almost any IT related careers will be safe for a few decades yet.
#5 – Creative careers – almost anything ‘arty’ will be a great career in the future, thespians and painters, performers will always be needed to entertain. Let’s face it who want to watch movies with CGI and AI generated characters and scenes… oh hold on erm……
#6 – Dentists – I don’t know about you, but I’m not ready to let a machine loose on my teeth and gums thank you very much.
#7 – Marketeers – yippee, we’re safe (for now) as people’s tastes and interests change there’ll be demand for more and more information or products that match those trends, we’re here for the long haul people.
#8 – Hackers – I don’t mean those blackhat / dark web characters, no there’s already a growing demand for ethical hackers in the modern world. This won’t go away any day soon – count on it.
There you are, so you can sleep soundly at night knowing at least there’s still a need for some people to work. But you should seriously consider how you can future proof yourself, your financial independence and security in the future. Don’t rely on this job or any future job, create multiple income streams.
