ChatGPT took their jobs. Now they walk dogs and fix air conditioners.

Writes the Washington Post:

Fein was rehired by one of his clients, who wasn’t pleased with ChatGPT’s work. But it isn’t enough to sustain him and his family, who have a little over six months of financial runway before they run out of money.

Now, Fein has decided to pursue a job that AI can’t do, and he has enrolled in courses to become an HVAC technician. Next year, he plans to train to become a plumber.

“A trade is more future-proof,” he said.

CGP Gray’s Humans Need Not Apply video is eight years old, but has never been more relevant. Leaning towards a profession more rooted in the physical world is a good instinct to have, for now.
