Every day a new robot comes out to replace a new task, from making toast to building cars. Will automation take my job as a blog writer? Hopefully not. It is important to prepare for more technology and the effects it might have on your career. Together, let’s look into automation.

Will robots eat my job?

Despite automation, there will always be a need for human employees in most industries. Take Medical Transcription, for example. Although speech recognition is becoming more prevalent, there will always be a need for humans who can spot errors that computer programs can’t. When it comes to dealing with important medical records, we simply cannot trust computers to transcribe doctor dictations with one hundred percent accuracy; there will always be a need for quality assurance editors. Most Medical Transcriptionists work from home, as this line of work does not require a physical presence in an office.

Will automation take my job as a Medical Transcriptionist? No chance.

Will offices cease to exist?

Take a look at administrative work. Nearly every industry employs Administrative Assistants. An integral role in the office, Administrative Assistants are responsible for tasks such as answering calls and emails, data entry, filing, bookkeeping, payroll, and transcription, just to name a few.

Administrative assistance cannot be completely automated; there will always be tasks that require a human touch, but most of them you can do from home. While offices will continue to exist, there’s a strong possibility that the future of administrative work will be conducted virtually. 

In fact, there is already a growing demand for Virtual Assistants, allowing you the opportunity to work as an Administrative Assistant from the comfort of your own home.
