Practically every day we get news of yet another job that has been automated away by machines. First robots take over from fast food restaurant staff, then they start replacing truck drivers. Where will it end?



Well, the good news is that using machines to replace human labor is nothing new. In fact, it’s desirable. Every time we get machines to do the work of people, our society gets richer, and our jobs become more meaningful. But these overall effects do little to placate the anxiety of workers in the present. So which jobs should you choose if you want a long and healthy career, and don’t want to be forced out by a machine?

Machines are great at performing rote tasks, but they’re not so good at being empathetic or using their hands. And while machines will eventually learn to be as social and dextrous as people, it’s not going to happen anytime soon. As a result, it’s unlikely that robots will replace nurse practitioners in the near future. Treating and diagnosing patients is still going to remain very much within the purview of human activity, even if robots start assisting in various parts of the process. Nurse practitioners usually need a master’s degree in nursing and can earn upwards of $90,000 a year




Marketing Specialists

Although SEO has changed dramatically over the last decade, so too have the people who work in the digital marketing sector. They’ve had to change with the times, building up an enormous level of experience along the way. Because the online world is becoming increasingly important to business, SEO experts are increasingly in demand. Regular businesses with no experience in digital marketing are reaching out for their services on a daily basis to help them navigate this complex area of business.



Working at an SEO company is also a lot of fun by most accounts and the pay is relatively high. More than 93,000 new positions are expected to open over the next seven years alone.




Personal Financial Advisors

You would have thought that with the rise of “fintech” that the days of the financial advisor were numbered. But leading experts don’t believe that we’ll be saying goodbye to the human touch in banking any time soon. Why? Because that’s not what happened last time a massive wave of technology hit the banking industry. In the 1970s, banks employed hundreds of thousands of bank tellers to sort and count cash before handing it out to depositors. But when ATM technology came in, many thought that tellers would disappear. Indeed, they did, but the people themselves remained at banks and started offering “relationship banking” services to customers instead.



The same is likely to happen to financial advisors. Machines will take over a lot of the grunt work while financial advisors themselves get on with the task of meeting real people and selling products. The average financial advisors needs a bachelor’s degree in a related subject and can take home around $80,000 a year.
