Is Your Job Safe from Robots?

Is Your Job Safe from Robots?

Earlier this year, I blogged about a company in Sweden that is micro-chipping employees (so basically, we will all be robots pretty soon). Well, the one thing I didn’t consider is that robots would actually be taking over our jobs altogether.

It’s not news that many tasks that once required skilled humans can now be done by computers. A new site titled “Will Robots Take My Job?” can tell you how likely it is that that will happen to YOUR job. The site uses data taken from a 2013 study out of Oxford titled “The Future of Employment: How susceptible are jobs to computerisation?” Along with the likelihood of your job being taken by a robot, the site includes data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, like projected growth, median annual wage and number of people employed.

So, which jobs are most at-risk, according to the site? Through a quick search of random job titles, Accountants; Hotel, Motel and Resort Desk Clerks; Motion Picture Projectionists and Claims Adjusters, Examiners, and Investigators came up with the highest percent risk, at 94-98% (“You are Doomed,” the site says). Dentists, teachers, and clergymen all come in under 1%.

While “Public Relations Specialist” wasn’t available at the time of this post (not sure if I should consider this a good or bad sign), a Marketing Manager is only at 1.4% risk and Graphic Designer at 8.4%, both deemed “Totally Safe” by the site. Looks like marlo marketing will be sticking around for a while (phew).
