In this stage of humankind where we are regularly getting updated with the newest technologies. Do you think that the jobs which you compete for today will exist in the near future? By near we mean as near as 10 years.
With the fast development of technology, employment is decreasing day by day. And in 10 years there will be hardly any work left for humans to do as machines and AI will replace them. For instance, if we take the example of banks, earlier cashiers used to work hard the whole day. But now with the ATM machines all over hardly anyone goes and lines up in the queue of the bank.
