Millennials should be aware of how automation could eventually impact their chosen careers.

The good news for millennials: many are looking for jobs that most likely won’t be replaced by a robot. The bad news: about half are desiring occupations that are prone to automation, according to a study of clicks of job postings on the Indeed jobsite.

“Millennials show a considerable amount of interest in occupations that face a threat of automation,” Indeed Hiring Lab economist Daniel Culbertson told the Washington Post. “That gets lost when people talk about millennials being so highly educated and more interested in tech roles.”
