  • Can IT Jobs Get Replaced by Robots?

    Can IT Jobs Get Replaced by Robots?
    For the last twenty years, high school and college advisors have been pushing students into the IT field as it has been a reliably growing job market. However, those numbers don’t seem to be holding quite as steady at this point. In the United States, IT job market prospects are expected to decrease through the end of the year following several devastating events, including hurricanes Harvey and Irma, wildfires, and the mass shooting in Las Vegas. Due to increased automation, Indian IT professionals are also facing a shrinking job market for the next several months. Senior IT professionals in India may even be facing layoffs. The overall job market in IT in India does remain positive, but this downward trending job market is the lowest it has been in India for many years and will cause shake-ups at major IT companies. Some IT professionals are hoping to quickly learn new cutting-edge technologies to keep themselves marketable as the IT job market shifts and changes. With each advance made in nanotechnology, artificial intelligence, and robotics, the need for human workers is eliminated; for example, The World Economic Forum’s Future of Jobs study predicts a job loss of nearly 5 million by the year 2020. In order to remain competitive, those in the IT field will likely need to acquire new and more specialized skills. Robots won’t replace us (not yet anyway), but they may change the way graduates prepare themselves for a career in IT.
