As I near the age of having to go to college, I often think of something. Nowadays, there are really only two types of jobs; highly specialized jobs, and unspecialized jobs. By this, I mean jobs that require going to school for a specific topic (i.e. being a surgeon or architectural designer) and jobs that just require hard work (i.e. builders or firefighters). The course I am currently on (Prep School, etc.) points me towards having very specialized carrier options when I leave college. Which can be an issue. There are a lot less specialized jobs then there are specialized workers. However, there are an endless amount of unspecialized jobs. With the role of technology/computers/robots taking up a lot of the 'middle' sorts of jobs, there is a much larger gap between being specialized and not. And honestly, it is frightening.

What are your thoughts on this? I am interested to hear.
