Listen in as Marlo and Jim address whether humans will be worked out of a job as automation becomes more available to employers and learn if your job is on the chopping block.
FUTURE JOB SHOCK
Losing a job is a part of every day life. Millions of people across the country lose jobs each year. Whether you are a highly-skilled individual with a specific skill set or an employee working a minimum wage job, no one is safe from the possibility of losing their job. In the next decade, many jobs will be lost and employees will be replaced with artificial intelligence (AI). Every job ranging from janitorial and construction to legal and accounting services will no longer need a human body to complete daily tasks. Robots will become the new employee disrupting our concept of what it means to be employed. Below is a look at some of the most prevalent job losses in the future.

The job market will need to change in order to meet the demands of technological changes in the workforce. Journalism, accountants, lawyers, taxi drivers, administrative assistants. The list goes on and on. As employees, we need to figure out how to adapt to these changes. Retraining, rethinking, reapplying and expanding our skills and knowledge will be a good place to start. Using creativity, having the willingness to learn the new and weird processes and adaptation of innovative skills will be the new job skill-set. Employees are going to have to start thinking outside the box if they expect to keep their jobs.
Listen as the Guru of Geek and Tech Geezer talk about the endless possibilities and new beginnings of the labor market.
