These Careers Will Survive The Automated Wave

Are you thinking about making a career change or pursuing a particular career? If so, then you should definitely think about the jobs that are the most secure. It’s fair to say that automation could be a threat to various jobs including teaching driving. After all, if most cars are autonomous in the future, self-driving might become far more rare. So, let’s dive into some of the careers that are worth exploring. 


First, you might want to think about fintech jobs. What is fintech? Many people believe that fintech holds the key to the future of financial systems across the world. If you have already heard of blockchain and cryptocurrency then this is a good starting point for diving deeper into the fintech industry. 

It does take quite a lot of training to sink your teeth into the fintech industry. However, the good news is that you’ll discover how to work with the latest software and create it yourself. This is one of the reasons why jobs in this industry aren’t going anywhere. 

Doctors And Nurses 

Doctors and nurses will no doubt use more automated software and technology in the future. We have already seen surgeries being performed by robots while patients can check themselves in using automated systems. It’s likely that this is just the beginning but we’re still going to need doctors and nurses working on the front line. Just like the fintech industry, doctors and nurses won’t be replaced by automated systems. Instead, they’ll be using them, potentially to provide a higher level of care to patients and ensure that they do feel well looked after. 

Child Care 

There are lots of things in life where people will happily trust automated systems and technology. However, childcare isn’t one of them. This is an area where people prefer the human touch and we think this will still be true years down the line. People feel more reassured when there is a human presence helping care for their kids. Child carers saw a massive drop in demand during lockdown but now things are back on track and child carers are more important than ever as people return to the office. 


Finally, if you’re looking for a high-paying job that is unlikely to be automated, then you should definitely turn your attention to the legal industry. The key point to remember about the law is that it’s designed so that it’s barely accessible for the typical lay person.

Automated software is getting pretty good at dissecting and understanding information. But laws are a whole other ball game and one that even software created by machine learning isn’t ready for just yet. Due to this, there’s no need to worry about lawyers disappearing, for better or worse. 

We hope this helps you understand some of the key careers that will not be automated. Or at least, they won’t be automated in the near future. In five or more decades? Who knows how many jobs will be completely obsolete due to the right technology and software.
