The automation of jobs has many advantages, like increased productivity. However, the main disadvantage is that people are concerned their careers may become obsolete in the next few decades.
A recent study showed that millennials in general choose professions that are more "future-proof," and less likely to be taken over by machines, but that still leaves many unsure of whether a robot will steal their job or not.
The world's number one job site, Indeed, has over 200 million unique visitors per month, which gives them an insight into what kinds of jobs are available, and what skills are in demand.
Based on this data, Indeed's EMEA economist Mariano Mamertino has come up with a list of nine career paths — exclusive to Business Insider — that are the least likely to be taken over by machines, or will complement their work.
Mamertino said that the occupations which will be harder to automate "often involve managing and developing people" and "decision-making and strategic planning, or creative work."
"Machines have the potential to make the workplace more efficient, by automating mechanical and routine processes, but humans will always play a key-role at the centre," he said.
