    There have been multiple article and OP ED pieces about occupations that will be overtaken by robots in the future. I admit I may not be reading carefully enough so could be missing the point. Many types of work that were once sources of employment have become less common. What is also true and perhaps the salient point is that few people can count on a job for life anymore so telling people that what they do will eventually be automated seems more like doom and gloom than useful LMI.

    found a survey from 2011 about public perceptions about career development and the workplace Certainly in AB the LMI has changed and that should mean seeking the services of a career development professional has never been more important. It is also disturbing to discover that career services in high school are being reduced at a time when they should be increasing. It seems that Alberta was once the leader and is now bringing up the rear. Could that be one of the reasons why our high school graduation rate is not improving meaning there are far too many students who do not connect what they are learning and how with their future ability to earn a living

    Citing multiple studies about automaton in the workplace does not prove the point. We all know automation is on the increase ditto AI however that still does not mean there will be fewer jobs it only means different skills will be in greater demand. I do not know what a colleague would say today however a few years ago he stated that one cannot use AUTOCAD effectively if one does not first learn to draft using pencil and hand tools. A variation of the advice that one must learn to walk before they can run . See also recent studies that continue to prove that the ability to use cursive writing is a key learning tool that literally connects the two hemispheres of the brain. Ergo to say that this is an old school skill just shows ignorance about how humans actually learn how to learn.
