I am a firm believer that the world will be overtaken by machines in the future. Maybe, we will be able to live the real-life Terminator scenarios. But, the overarching fact is that the world is true, being taken over by the machines and new technologies. Slowly, we have been more and more inclined to depend on technology than we used to. With a good fascination with computers, I was always aware of this as I always wanted to know more about how the technology worked. So, as a self-proclaimed technology enthusiast, I have been studying Computer Science at the college.
I was never sure what I was going to do after completing my degree and had to research about the job opportunities I would supposedly get after finishing my studies. After making a long list of job options, I was pretty sure that every one of them was as complicated as the job title they had. I will tell you, it was 2 years ago that I made the list, but now it is clear to me that it is as hard to complete the degree in the first place. So, I can imagine that the work I must put up with the jobs ranging from an IT manager to web designer will be hectic. However, there are so many things you could do with the degree that I am still not sure what kind of job I will be doing 10 years from now.
It is believed that technical skills will be high on demand in the near future. The ability to manage and discern a massive amount of data will be of high value. Software related jobs will grow by 18.8% in 2024. But it is just the tip of the iceberg. With the rise of machines and technological advancement in the work field; it is evident that the rise of jobs relating to the servicing, repairing, programming, and other software and hardware related jobs will be on the rise. It has been estimated that about 5 million jobs will be lost to automation by 2020. Therefore, I am convinced that with the background of Computer Science. I will be doing a boring job like programming software for an application or a machine for different companies. But the most fun thing I could be doing 10 years from now would be developing games. Gaming is also one of the rising industry and programming games, for me, has a nice ring to it. To my dismay, being a game developer is harder than it sounds and as the gaming industry is still evolving; they are trying to make genres that are more appealing to the buyers which make the future it holds for game dev, ambiguous.
Being a programmer is hard, and you must be a quick learner to understand what has gotten into while studying Computer Science. This holds true even after you finish your studies, as the programming languages being used for applications and software are always being updated; and you never know when a better programming language pops up out of nowhere and you have to learn it from the scratch. This is one of the never-ending battles a programmer must face. To my dismay, it is very possible that many new programming languages will rise up and I will have to learn the languages from the very start just to keep my job. This is a very evident scenario and it is possible that computer scientists will have to learn new languages throughout their lives just to keep their job.
With some astounding space exploration companies coming to surface, it is evident that computer science has offered many avenues in the field of space exploration too. By applying robotics and software enterprise, computer engineers have been building robots, gadgets, and spaceships to help explore the space. In the near future, space exploration may turn out to be a norm and it is very possible that a surge of increase in demand for computer programmers will be created. Developing software and application for space programs could be a possible job for me after all.
No one can precisely foretell the future. 2025 A.D. could be the year that the world will end, you never know. As far as I know, my job, as a computer scientist can very sure be writing codes; a lot of codes for businesses, managing websites, programming and maintaining automation, accidentally building a killer defense system AI that will try to annihilate humans. I cannot predict what I will be doing then but I can surely tell that it will be very hard to get and keep a job by then. The competition has been rising and every passing day, it is getting harder and harder for people to get a job that they were hoping to get from their degree. The rise in computer-automated “workers” doesn’t help either, as it is helping considerably to increase the numbers of jobless bums. In the year 2025, maybe you won’t have to work, and the government will give you a steady amount of money; who knows? But, what If by 2025 there will be machines and robots built, that can repair and update themselves rendering the need of programmers and repairmen obsolete? With the rise in technological advancement, in the near future, this can hold true. Although it might take more than 20 years of technological advancement for that to happen, people might find themselves jobless because of the rise of automated machines in job culture. If these kinds of events unfold and I was to be jobless, I always imagined I would be a beet farmer.
