Back in the 2000s, I worked as a travel agent and was constantly being told that one day a computer would take my job. 20 years on and we've seen incredible advancements in online booking engines and apps for travel, yet you will still see half a dozen retail travel agencies still open for business in most shopping precincts.
Today, as a Talent Consultant, I'm still being told that one day a computer will take my job. It's something I've always scoffed at, but upon reading this article it dawned on me - if no-one ever moved job, I would be out of a job!
