People always joke about how robots are going to take over the world, but maybe that “future” is a lot closer to home than we realize, as CGP Grey explains in this video. While it certainly isn’t time to jump ship and give up all hope at obtaining a job, this could be just a little food for thought.

Make sure that the skills you are learning now in school are ones that will be harder to duplicate, whether your competition is other potential candidates or robots. Even though robots have been making significant strides, they still lag behind in excellent writing skills and interpersonal skills, which are highly necessary skills for a lot of jobs, and they’re also very easy to build while still in college. Don’t wait until it’s too late!
