Test automation wants your manual testing job





Automation will leave many people without a job. 

I am not talking about test automation being a danger to many manual testing jobs. 

But about automation in a more general perspective. 

In Canada, in the next 10 - 15 years, up to 7.5 million jobs (out of 18) will be lost because of automation. 

This is what Huffington Post says and I agree with them. 

The key points of the article are below: 

  • Canada faces the loss of up to 7.5 million jobs to automation in the next 10 to 15 years 
  • Even people in high-income jobs won’t be spared, as automation will reduce the demand for doctors, lawyers and engineers, among others. 
  • Autonomous vehicles are already on the road, robo-advisors are dispensing financial counsel and even lawyers and reporters are starting to see automation take over routine functions. 
  • The study’s projections found a broad range in the number of jobs that could be lost — 1.5 million at the lower end, and 7.5 million at the high end. That amounts to between 8.3 per cent and 41 per cent of the 18 million jobs in existence in Canada today. 


So the demand for doctors, lawyers, engineers, reporters, etc will be reduced significantly. 

Should we hope that this will not happen to testers?

  1. its better to learn not only automation but you have to improve your skill set because technology is growing at very fast rate. Even developers are struggling and everyone who is not improving himself day by day will face some problem
