Predicting the future job market: the librarians

One thought on “Predicting the future job market: the librarians”

  1. I agree with you, Daniel. Most of the claims like “robots will take all of jobs” are completely overblown.

    Sure, the job market will certainly change. But has it ever stopped changing anyways? Many jobs that were essential back in the day simply aren’t so today. We just need to think about milk and bread delivery; it was hot in the 50s and 60s, but not anymore. Do we really need these anymore?

    Jobs that can be automated will probably disappear. And those that can’t be simply won’t. It will be our responsibility to adapt this changing landscape. And we may have some surprises; jobs that we thought would disappear may not, like librarians.
