According to a new survey from CareerBuilder, 21 percent of companies have replaced employees with technology. Among companies with more than 500 employees, the number is 30 percent.

The truth is, as it’s been for a long time, that workers are competing against each other for jobs – as well as competing against machines! As if the rat race wasn’t hard enough …

Well, there is a bit of a silver lining. While technology and automation eliminates some jobs, it also creates different ones.


The trick is to keep your eyes open for these new opportunities – and stay very flexible.
