Whether you’re a techno-optimist, realist, or pessimist, you can’t deny that the rise of artificial intelligence is shaking things up. The job industry is going through some major shifts. And, likely, this will only accelerate in the future. The International Monetary Fund warns that AI is going to affect nearly 40% of all jobs worldwide.

Naturally, some folks are slightly worried about the future of their careers. Meanwhile, others are barely breaking a sweat. The r/AskReddit community recently chatted about the jobs that they think are nearly entirely safe from AI making them obsolete. Scroll down to hear their thoughts. (You might also want to keep this in mind for a plan B if your white-collar or creative job goes sideways.)

A report from Goldman Sachs from back in March 2023 projected that content-generating AI could do a quarter of all the work currently done by people. In the European Union and the United States alone, around 300 jobs could be lost to automation.

“If generative AI delivers on its promised capabilities, the labor market could face significant disruption. Using data on occupational tasks in both the US and Europe, we find that roughly two-thirds of current jobs are exposed to some degree of AI automation, and that generative AI could substitute up to one-fourth of current work,” the report states.

According to Business Insider, some of the jobs that are the most vulnerable to AI include tech jobs (from coders to software engineers) and media jobs (from content creation and journalism to advertising).

I install elevators for a living. We are so, so far away from building any machine that has all the physical abilities to get it done, and just as far from making AI that has the wits it takes to figure out how to even do it.

Construction on sites in general, it involves a lot of “figuring it out” and “working with what you have”.

Some media companies are already working to integrate AI tools like ChatGPT into their arsenals. For example, tech news site CNET is already using AI to write some articles. However, they’re far from perfect and have to be corrected. Meanwhile, BuzzFeed is using AI to generate new quizzes and travel guides.

Other jobs vulnerable to AI include legal professionals, market researchers, teachers, financial traders, accountants, customer service agents, and graphic designers.

If you feel that you’re affected, first of all—don’t panic. Breathe! It’s natural to feel a tad worried about your future when the global job industry is being overhauled so quickly due to tech progress. While none of us can stop the rise and spread of AI, what we can do is change how we react to it. No matter our jobs, we can embrace these changes and adapt to them. Or, if you’re in an influential position to do so, you can do your part to help AI tools be used more ethically and less disruptively. 

From our perspective, it’s quite likely that AI tools are going to become integral in many white-collar positions. However, they (probably) won’t entirely replace human employees. AI is nothing if left unguided. You need talented and insightful workers with good managerial and editing skills to get the most out of them.

Teacher, especially for younger kids. Parents want their kids learning from a human because there’s important social aspects they must learn.

No-Survey7308:

Teacher! Sorry but if covid has taught us anything it’s the need for a real person standing in front of these kids. As a teacher for the last 22 years i can tell you that these kids are damaged from remote learning. Turns out much of my job is getting kids to be present in the moment. Not distracted by the window or the kid next to them,not the phones but the material in front of them. Phones (and the ai in it) are making it harder but they need human beings to guide them and train them to gain intellectual endurance. AI will never replace us.

At the end of the day, despite all of our guesses, AI is going to affect the global job industry in ways that we can’t even imagine. The best that we can do is to stay up to date with industry changes, get to grips with at least some relevant AI tools, and… consider learning a new skill or trade on the side.

Or, to put it simply: if you’re really, really good at what you do, you’re less likely to be laid off. So the best defense against becoming obsolete is to be great at your job. However, it’s not just our hard skills that are important. It’s our relationships and how we communicate that are essential, too. They can mean a huge deal if someone ever has to pick between saving/firing one of two equally skilled workers during cutbacks

 A fine-dining chef/cook. Sure, you could make a robot that throws ingredients together in a pan, and perhaps even beautifully plate it, but they lack the ability to taste. A cook needs to taste their food to make sure it tastes the way it’s supposed to. Also, we use our ability to smell to reveal if certain foods have gone bad/rancid/rotten. If a human open a tub of chicken, and it smells sour and rotten, you throw it out. AI/robots can’t smell, so might serve rotten food.

Someone who is empathetic, knows how to navigate conflicts, and inspires colleagues with their leadership is invaluable. Now, contrast that with someone who is cynical, unfriendly, rude, and widely disliked by their team. If you had to make the hard decision to let one of these people go, who would you choose? 

We’d love to hear your thoughts on this topic, dear Pandas. What jobs do you think are going to be the most vulnerable in the Age of AI? Which professions do you personally believe are the safest? How worried are you about getting replaced in your line of work? Are you a techno-optimist, realist, or pessimist? If you have a moment, tell us what you think in the comments at the bottom of this article.

First responders.

I saw a fire break out once, near my office. It was an old factory where some junkies sometimes gather, so it naturally went up one day. There is a big heavy gate at the entrance of the yard with heavy steel bars and barbed wire. People from around the yard tried to open it before the firefighters came, so they had an easier job, but no one could open it, and there is a metalworking factory near it. Angle grinders, saws, nothing could cut it. The junkies used a small hole to get in.

Haxomen:

The firefighters came, took out some contraption and took the fire out through one of the windows of the factory. Using the Bernoulli principle. They never entered the yard. The fire raged 20 minutes and was done in 5 minutes after they came. I can’t see a situation where AI is so responsive to really complex situations. Maybe some future AGI, but then we will achieve post scarcity.

“Conversely, jobs most vulnerable to AI disruption are those that can be easily automated without extensive manual labor. Roles such as data entry, data analysis, telemarketing, bookkeeping, cashiering, writing, and even aspects of investing fall into this category, as they involve tasks that AI can readily undertake. It is crucial for individuals to adapt and enhance their skills to remain competitive in a job market influenced by AI,” Dogen said.

According to marketing psychology speaker Johnson, there are things that all employees can do to become less replaceable by AI. “Employees can focus on developing skills that complement AI rather than compete with it. Put simply—your job probably won’t be replaced by AI itself; your job will be replaced by someone using AI,” he stressed.

“In order to cultivate a better partnership with AI, employees will want to think about honing their skills in areas like data analysis, programming, and machine learning, which can enhance their ability to work alongside AI systems. Additionally, cultivating soft skills, such as creativity, emotional intelligence, and complex problem-solving, can make individuals more valuable in roles that require human interaction and nuanced decision-making,” Johnson shared.

Community work/ social work. The more human you are in this field, the better. No one would tolerate or even bother engaging with an AI.

Honestly? IT

There’s always going to be something going wrong with computers that are so dumb and unique that AI won’t have any idea how to fix it.
