Hi Anthony & Welcome to the Jobcase Community! Congrats on graduating from Manufacturing and Automation. Well done! There's one employment opportunity within the Philadelphia, PA area I'd like to bring your attention to but first I want to point out a very important detail. Warehouse Worker (what you have written in the title of this post ) and Manufacturing and Automation Technician are 2 very different job titles at totally different career levels and with dramatically different pay scales. Being clear with what you want will more than likely guarantee that you'll be happy with what you get.

First Quality has just posted a NEW! Industrial Manufacturing Technician job opening for their King of Prussia, PA facility. The job is designed to be similar to an apprenticeship program which makes it ideal for a recent graduate looking for a foot into the industry. Use this link to open and review the job description but please make sure you take these steps before you apply:

1 Go to the "About Us' page on the company website and learn something about the company. Make sure you understand what they do.

2 Carefully review the job description. Take a look at the duties and responsibilities for the job and make sure you meet the basic requirements/qualifications for the job.

3 Create or update a resume tailored specifically to that job so you can stand out as a preferred candidate. Remember, your never going to be the only or most experienced applicant for any job you apply for but a well crafted resume can help you stand out as the right candidate.

Got Questions? We can help. Upload the most recent copy of your resume onto your Jobcase Profile and reach out to me when you're done and we'll get started.

Hey Gilberto Conley , Happy New Year! Interesting comment but not surprised Elon Musk is making this type of statement.

75 million is an aggressive number but possible as Warehouse and Distribution companies like Amazon, UPS, and FedEx continue to grow. Logistics management is a huge industry.

Most of the job associated to logistics/distribution and manufacturing can easily transition into full automation.

SKILLS NEEDED BY FUTURE EMPLOYEES

Skills Desired By Employers in 2020 and Beyond

It seems inevitable: Technology is going to replace jobs, or more precisely, the people holding those jobs. Few industries, if any, will be untouched.

One survey revealed that "39% of jobs in the legal sector could be automated in the next 10 years. Separate research has concluded that accountants have a 95% chance of losing their jobs to automation in the future."

And for those in manufacturing or production companies, the future may arrive even sooner. That same report mentioned the advent of "robotic bricklayers." Machine learning algorithms are also predicted to replace people responsible for "optical part sorting, automated quality control, failure detection, and improved productivity and efficiency." Quite simply, machines are better at the job: The National Institute of Standards predicts that "machine learning can improve production capacity by up to 20%" and reduce raw materials waste by 4%.

In a world increasingly dominated by robots, artificial intelligence, and virtual reality, having a firm grasp of what employers will be looking for is smart. Interestingly, many of the skill sets listed are not yet considered important by employers. They may not be on their radar now-but they will be.

Top 10 Skills Desired By Employers By 2020

10) Cognitive Flexibility

This involves logical reasoning, creativity and problem sensitivity. It will mean the way you communicate to different people and your ability to adapt accordingly. You need to think critically about who you're communicating with, rather than say the same thing to everyone, and that's what employers will be looking for. This requires that you're able to listen deeply and be able to taylor your communication to the individual.

9) Negotiation Skills

This will be in especially high demand in math and computer related jobs, such as software development and data analysis. It will also be critical in the arts and design which will include commercial and industrial designers.

8) Service Orientation

Defined as actively seeking ways to help others. How much do you assist those on your team, your superiors, and people across your industry? How much are you known for that?

7) Judgment and Decision-Making

As more and more data is collected by organizations, there will be a greater need for employees who are able to not only analyze it, but also use it to make intelligent decisions. This also involves knowing how to get valuable input from colleagues or making a strong suggestion to a manager, despite it being an unpopular decision for your appearance. All of this would require an employee with good judgement in his/her decision making abilities.

6) Emotional Intelligence

Despite the abilities of robotics being able to do a lot, the ability to read people the way other humans can, is still lacking (at least for the time being). Those who are aware of others' reactions and feelings as well as their own impact on others, will be who employers will place a strong emphasis on hiring.

5) Coordinating With Other People

This is another social skill (notice a trend forming) that will be highly sought by employers. It involves collaborating, sensitivity to the needs of others and the ability to adjust oneself accordingly in relation to others.

4) People Management

The ability to motivate people, pick the best people for the job, and develop skills and talents of employees are what is included here. This will be especially in demand for media and energy industry managers.

3) Creativity

As the world is continued to be bombarded by new technologies, employers increasingly want creative people who are able to apply that tech to new services and products.

2) Critical Thinking

With the increase of automation, rises the increase for humans who are able to employ reason and logic. This is, in part, because machines must be directed ethically and optimally. Critical minded people who can evaluate the use or abuses of technologies power to benefit an organization, the people of that organization and the future are what's in great demand by employers.

1) Complex Problem-Solving

On the top of the list of future skills most in demand by employers. Technology can either make life easier or more complicated. For example, you could use wearables to help map the walking patterns of pedestrians at major city intersections to increase better city planning. But without a human being analyzing those results while also getting valuable input from pedestrians through conversations, you will likely end up with inaccurate data that could lead to dangerous results.

A Harvard Business report shows that 36% of all jobs across all industries will require complex problem-solving abilities as a core skill by 2020.

Final Thoughts

Take a look at this list in aggregate, and it's clear that if you want to prepare for 2020 and beyond, you should develop your social skills. Substantially.

This is backed up by David J. Deming, research fellow at the National Bureau of Economic Research. The title of his paper isn't even subtle: The Growing Importance of Social Skills in the Labor Market. He argues that strong social skills will only increase in importance as robots and automation take more jobs.

And take heart.

Automation will require people who are able to service and maintain this technology, therefore new jobs will open up.

Far from robots taking over the world, their rise seems to mean that it is the very things that make you human, your willingness to cover for a coworker whose parent is sick; your desire to help two radically different teammates work together; your heartfelt appreciation of a manager who had our backs, that will make you the most valuable.

This is fantastic Patrick Coppedge - the world of work is constantly changing, and it's only speeding up compared to what it used to be. It's important to be sure that you are honing your 'soft skills' in the workplace - they are the ones that will allow the most career flexibility over hard skills.

Thanks for sharing! I watched this video a few weeks ago, and your post just reminded me of it.

About #Automation

I don't want to upset anybody, but .... there are interesting Prof. Shoshana Zuboff's Laws:

  1. Everything that can be automated will be automated.

  2. Everything that can be informated will be informated.

  3. Every digital application that can be used for surveillance and control will be used for surveillance and control.

Not sure about that last point, but I agree we're moving towards an automated society. That's why it's important for jobseekers to stay informed and always learn new skills. Just my two cents!

Is your job being AUTOMATED?

I’m just curious how many people have lost their jobs due to automation or robots? If you did, what line of work are you in? I’m a mortgage underwriter and was laid off because it was slow. However, I have lots of friends in the industry laid off due to a new automated system the banks are using. Our jobs are very complex so it’s shocking! I have other friends in different lines of work all telling me their companies laid off because of a new automated system. I feel like we’re being eliminated all at the same time. Just wondering what others experience has been.

Hi Tamara J ,

That's a very interesting topic. There are a ton of people who are being displaced by this kind of automation and AI. I think it's similar to past inventions - technology will continue to make things easier, but at a cost to jobs. But like the past, new industries will pop up around it to support them and create new jobs.

I'm sorry to hear that you lost your job because of this. Have you been applying? While I am sure your company automated, there are probably still some who do not. Have you tried using the job search tool here on Jobcase?

Just follow these steps!

1. Click on Jobs & Companies at the top of the page, or head over [here] (http://www.jobcase.com/jobs/search)

2. Enter a job into the search field where it says Job Title, Keywords, or Company.

3. Add in your location by filling in your City and State OR zip code. Then click the magnifying glass to search.

4. Once the list is up, click on “View Job" of any you are interested in and then apply.

Wishing you the best of luck with your job search!

suggestions that employees have for management regarding automation.

Hi guys, I write leadership articles about the workplace. I am interested to know the suggestions that employees have for management regarding automation. I am basically wanting to know if you are seeing opportunities at a personal level related to this topic of automation? Let me make an example:

1) if your job is to punch in job cards into a system every day, and 2) that process becomes automated 3) an opportunity could be that if management gives you the authority to pull reports, they will more accurate and it will be a faster process, as a result 4) your role could be elevated where you are spending more time analyzing patterns of employee attendance using fancy reports that are generated automatically from the system, and 5) you may be able to start making contributions in management meetings around for instance - how to better schedule employees on shifts, and so on.

This is obviously just an example, I would like to hear your practical examples.

I think this is an interesting topic for you to learn and research about Faith Nhlapo - I don't have anything to contribute on a personal level, bu just wanted to say that Jobcase is very much aware of automation's affect on the job market and are working to empower the workforce to circumvent negative effects!

I can't wait to see about what talk about in this conversation!
