If there is one thing that technology has greatly changed, its the work environment, especially for businesses in Illinois.
There have been white collar jobs and professional services that were affected by the dramatic technological changes since the past years. Tasks such as bookkeeping and clerical works were handled by a computing technology which models human abilities such as analytics and “Big Data”. The routine tasks in manufacturing were taken over by works of computer and automation.
With the presence of emails, people nowadays are no longer paying postal offices to send letters. So we expect to see fewer mail men working now. The future of traditional newspaper prints is becoming uncertain too because the internet is publishing thousands of blogs everyday where people have free access to. The job of a librarian is also becoming endangered because students now are relying more on the fast and effective tool of internet’s search engine.
This idea of emerging technologies wiping off jobs is startling everyone in society. But many economists believe that there is a promising future brought by advances in innovation and technology.
This holds true for areas like water damage restorations services, who have improved so much in terms of speed, accuracy and efficiency, all thanks to technology. Chemical compositions of items used for disinfecting and other jobs have also improved, making companies that offer this service compete in a higher level.
This is the reason why websites like www.mywebpal.com have emerged – to help provide helpful information on which companies have what it takes to call themselves “updated” in terms of water damage service techniques and systems.
While many jobs are likely to be replaced by these remarkable advancements, new categories of jobs will also likely emerge. Robots designers, transportation network engineers and people skilled in software development and data analytics are the kind of professionals most likely needed in the near future. The ordinary worker will see their jobs augmented by the new innovations and they will learn additional skills making them more marketable.
There are some professions which are expected to be spared from the technological force. These are jobs requiring creativity, empathy and intuitiveness. If we are to ensure today’s students with a job that’s not going to be obsolete in the future, we can always recommend to them the careers of nurses, psychologists, teachers and marketing sales representative. The innovations in health care lengthen people’s lives and the services of health care professionals are much needed. Machines cannot replace the job of an inspiring and skilled teacher. Teachers are certainly needed in the future workforce.
