GETTING INTO TECH

The TECH influx

FOMO or not?

  • My field will become irrelevant in the future. While this seems like quite a strong reason, more often than not it is usually backed by FOMO (Fear of missing out). Yes, most of the people with this reason are just scared without good reason. I agree, some jobs will become less relevant which is common for every stage of industrialization. However, the major problem here is, most people never carry out any form of research on how technology will affect their fields or jobs. If more people did this, how beautiful it would be. Firstly, I believe whatever skills you have gained over the years working should never go to waste, there is always something of relevance that can be leveraged there. Lawyers, doctors and farmers are some of the people I admire the most in this regards because they have found a way to embrace this change and leverage it. We see lawyers who have taken several courses and achieved certain certifications to be able to handle technology based cases because these tech firms and businesses do need the lawyers to conduct their businesses, interpret the laws governing their businesses to them, help draw up contracts, cybersecurity laws, data protection laws, and so many things. Farmers leverage data and analytics for crop production, cattle rearing, diseases control and so on. Today, with the help of IoTs and proper data analysis, doctors can diagnose diseases several times faster, identify patterns and develop cures or adequate preventive measures for ailments. They have all had to go the extra mile to do some form of studying or learning but they are all getting a piece of the pie too. So, what is your decision?
