Making furniture? Rebuilding engines? Building houses?
Why Millenials? Do they need different skills from the rest of us? If so, who says? My uncle told me in 1955 I'd never get by if I couldnt weld repairs on a hay baler...havent ever needed to do that since.
I don’t understand the context of the question. *shrug*
I guess I want to know what labor skills will carry over as technology becomes more prevalent.
HVAC & refrigeration repair!
How will old people survive in the present and future where their only skills have been rendered obsolete by advances in technology, infrastructure, and their own poor choices?
That is the question I want answered.
You will need plumbers, electricians, carpenters, masons, auto techs...
The list goes on.
Interpersonal skills comes to mind.
Tech heads don't want to acknowledge it, but the mechanical world isn't going anywhere. In addition to the above, we have planes and ships that need to be maintained (everything being manufactured overseas). Clothing still has to be made. Maybe not in the US, but you still need worker's to produce goods. Farming requires lots of physical skills.
The list goes on...
I would advise against that as a career choice.
SOMEone has to do it. Self driving or otherwise, internal combustion or electric, we Wil have cars for a while.
This guy outlines essential skill sets, emerging jobs/industries, etc. Essential viewing IMO.
I get that.
The automotive industry
Hopefully it will be someone other than myself doing it. 36 years in the business and it's become nothing more than a race to the bottom...... everything is free free free and if the tech can't get any upsells on a $14.95 oil change its his fault and he doesn't get paid.
I'm so sick of the way the industry works, I'm ready to bail out tomorrow.
Never hurts to know basic DIY.
The most important skill is logical and well considered problem solving. If you can solve problems, you can be taught physical skills to be productive. If you have physical skills but can't solve problems, you're stuck doing trivial tasks.
Plumbers. As long as people have to poop , there will be plumbers.
