We all know that the robots are coming for our jobs. But there are still a lot of jobs out there that technology can’t replace, no matter how advanced it gets. These kinds of jobs require a real human element, and are also a safe bet if you’re concerned about job security going into the next few decades.

Morticians & Funeral Services, $43,812 per year
Although it’s a little morbid to think about, morticians will always have an important role in our society. While morticians ensure that the deceased are dealt with properly and prepared with care, funeral directors can provide emotional support, in addition to taking care of funeral arrangements, which most families find burdensome.
Psychologists & Therapists, $70,649 per year
Psychologists and therapists arguably have the most human-focused job roles. And as the world around us grows more advanced and more problems arise, the more we need people in these types of job roles. A robot will never be able to provide the same type of support you will find in a living, breathing human being.
Government Leadership Positions, starting at $61,891 per year
Given the current political climate, some people out there probably wish robots would take over these positions. Alas, that is not the case, and likely won’t be for the foreseeable future. Government leaders are tasked with being in touch with humans and the people they govern.
HR Managers, $61,639 per year
Even when robots finally do take over the workforce, someone has to be there to listen to the only humans left when they have a problem or need to get a salary increase.
