The Involvement of Computers in Future Jobs


Computer consulting is one of the important if not the most important
job of our time. Computers are the future whether we like it or not. Some
people dislike computers, because of the complications it takes to
understand the basics. Computers are not exactly the easiest tools to work
with, but they are the most rewarding, and they are the future. Future
cars will all be run by computer. You will be able to talk to a car and it
will take you to your destination. Telephones are technically
computerized. You will soon be able to talk to a person on the telephone as
well as look at the person you are talking to on a television set. Also
television is computerized. Soon we will have true three dimensional
television. We will be able to watch television like we never have watched
it before. We will be able to touch the characters, and feel the
characters like they were in the room with you. For people who don\'t know
much about computers, you will be lost in the future. You should learn
what you can while you still have the chance, because things will develop
to quickly for you and you will not be able to cope with new technological
events. Computer consulting is a job, I have chosen long before the
advances of technology. And now it has paid off. I now have a business of
my own, working as a computer consultant. I assist others in learning
about computers to be able to operate more efficently in their everyday
jobs. Computers will fall into careers and our everyday life more rapidly
then you think. Perhaps you would like to be a teacher. You will store all
class data, students work, names, grades, records all accessible by
computer. Or, how about a doctor. You will use computers to examine and
evaluate a patients problem quicker and more efficiently. These are only a
few examples. The bottom line is, computers provide worthwhile careers.

Having a job that involves computers, in terms of the conditions, is
very much similar to any office job. In most of the common jobs, the
worker will get to an office in the morning, sit at a desk, in front of a
computer, and will do very little manual labor except a lot of typing.

For example, the computer consultant we have already mentioned, might
do several jobs, a few being: Traveling to clients computers, writing
customized programs, repairing computer parts, and teaching/ guiding
students in learning. Only the repair aspect of this job, would require
actual manual labor. However, computers and computer parts are so well
built and shall continue to be even more well built, that repair is only a
small fraction of a consultant\'s daily routines.

Overall, conditions for the majority of jobs dealing mainly with
computers, shall include very little manual labor, unfavorable conditions,
and much knowledge, typing skills, and good communication skills in dealing
with people.

With computers and the computer industry being the most rapidly
changing industry and product in the world, the job outlook for any job
dealing with computers or the industry is almost completly unpredictable.

However, with the computer industry only being around for a short
period of time compared to the other industries of the world, we can still
get a somewhat accurate idea of where the industry is heading based on the
amount of change already inccured by the technology.

Firstly, computers have, over the years, been taking control of more
and more of the dealings of human everyday life, and because of efficiency
they have proven, it would be likely to assume that one major change of the
computer industry from today until tomorrow will be control of more and
more of our everyday life. For example, not only will our coffee be made
by automatic machines, like Mr. Coffee, but also, we will no longer have to
input the grounds, and the water to make the coffee. Computers shall be
controlling the temperature of the coffee, to know when to stop it, thus
eliminating our having to turn off the machine.

Therefore, the outlook on the jobs relating to computers in the
future, shall be not only enlarged in field, but also will encompass more
aspects of everyday life than anything before in history, except for maybe
sleeping. By this, it is meant that computers will not just be something
that you choose to know or learn in the future, but something that will
just be part of everyone\'s
