    Choosing a college major is one of the most challenging life decisions.

    Gone are the days when you could make a decision based on your personal interests.

    There are many factors to consider when making the decision.

-------------------------------------

It is crucial to choose a college major that you can depend on for the rest of your life. Technology is changing everything. That includes our career choices. Before making a decision on what to major in, you should ask yourself if it will remain relevant in future.

What majors should students avoid?

As said before, technology is bringing some careers to an end. With computers, people can carry out different tasks at the comfort of their homes.

Top 5 Future-Proof Career Fields:

It is okay for you to make your career decisions based on your academic strengths. However, you should also ensure that you will still benefit from it in future. Here are the 5 best careers for the future:

1. Health professionals

Some roles are not going to be taken over by machines. Physicians, registered nurses, surgeons and other health practitioners will remain relevant. With the growing population and elevated access to health insurance, the demand for health practitioners will only increase. What’s more, they are among the highest paid people in the job market.

2. Data Scientists

Computers will be used extensively for the analysis of data. However, researchers will depend on statisticians and data analysts to collect and interpret data. They will have to keep updating themselves on the use of various statistical packages. The technical skills of data scientists will still be needed to solve various complex problems.

3. Software Engineers

With every passing day, computers are getting better and there is no turning back. The future is all about high-performance machines. More software developers will be needed to achieve better results. Plus, we will need programmers to develop the robots.

4. App Developers

Every industry is looking for a way to deliver services faster and more conveniently. Mobile applications are making it possible. The demand for app developers will keep on increasing. They will need to develop apps for different purposes.

5. Chefs

Scientists can design robots to carry out different tasks, but they will never have the human sense of smell and taste.They might do the basic cooking but we will still need human chefs to create new dishes.

It is almost impossible to tell if some jobs will be fully automatized or not. If that is possible, how long will it take? However, inventions like electricity and the internet are proof that anything is possible. Therefore, it is better to be on the safe side and make a good career choice.
