21st Century Career Managing Tip - The Impact of Artificial Intelligence on the Job Market

Monitoring the job market and preparing for career changes never ends, this includes having awareness of the future job environment. 

As technology grows, the impacts on society and our ability to survive on our own terms can bring stress and uncertainty in an already uncertain period. Here are a couple of observations I share for your consideration and further research.

13Jan19; CBS 60 Minutes ran a story about Artificial Intelligence (AI) and its implications on society and the job market. The interview was with Kai-Fu Lee, an AI expert and venture capitalist.

Lee stated in the 60 Minute’s interview he expects approximately 40% of todays jobs become irrelevant within the next 15-20 years. Those jobs tend to involve processes that can be automated such as vehicle drivers, bookkeepers, store clerks, etc.

11Jan19 and 14Jan19; Time and CNBC ran articles where Lee identified jobs most likely safe from AI. Those jobs are ones involving creativity, negotiation/emotional intelligence/social intelligence skills, strategic thinking, certain types of analysis as well as unknown jobs that will develop as a result of AI. 

The point - where crisis surfaces, so do opportunities. Take the time to pay attention to the world around you so you can identify how to shape your future, rather the future shape you.

SNOW BULLY–Better than a Shovel, Easy to Use, Energy Efficient, Cost Effective and Made in the USA

Are you ready for the snow season? I don't know about you, I have a long driveway I hate just pushing snow out with the shovel. I don't have a truck where I can add a snow plow blade to push away the snow. However, I did find something that may be of interest to you… It's called the SNOW BULLY . I just purchased a SNOW BULLY a little over a month ago. It’s made of heavy steel, but very easy to maneuver. I cannot wait to use it. Shoveling can be backbreaking work, it can also be dangerous because of the amount of stress it can put on your heart. The SNOW BULLY is easy to maneuver and push your way through snow. The SNOW BULLY is cost effective; you do not have to hire someone to clear your driveway.
