Cloud computing is enabling Remote jobs and projects to be executed in no time. Also, Artificial Intelligent is taking over the employment space, we are in a Digital World and information age; those who fail to evolve with time might go into Oblivion. This goes for all aspect of our lives; employment, raising families, educational systems, infrastructures, Government etc.
In the context of my Blog, Smart Job or Smart Working is when an individual legitimately earns a living from the comfort of his or her homes or office, condos without going through stress and hassles of normal jobs. The concept of reporting to an office is eliminated and sometimes it has no need for a chain of command or division of Labour of a regular working place.
The concept of Smart Working is synonymous to technological advancement, both developed countries and developing ones now embrace this means of making a living that boycotts daily stress of life, that also requires little or no "Boss" clause before making a livelihood legitimately. One of the features of Smart Working is soft skills which require the use of computers and devices for remote working i.e your bedroom, Workspace, Sitting room, Kitchen and so on; so far you do not have to go to a Physical office to get any task or job done.
Day Jobs are nothing compared to working Smart, as a worker you need to report to an office daily and promptly in most cases before getting paid, you have to do paper works and be subjected to the hierarchy of command. A critical fact is that. you have to endure a great deal in human relationships and environmental factors. Another fact is that you could be employed for a day job to do a smart job, exclusively; smart Job Hives you independent unlike working for a Boss. Most smart Works are privately owned by the individuals involved. Below is a Juxtaposition between the Two ways of making a living:
|SMART WORK/JOB||DAY JOB|
|Mostly working for yourself||Working for someone, a Boss|
|Requires no long hours of work||To make or earn more, you have to work more|
|Requires Soft skills, Computer Knowledge||Not necessarily a computer skilled job.|
|Little or less Educational qualification||Experience and Qualifications matter as per wages|
|Virtual interactions i.e might not require physical interactions||Must involve other employees or a boss interaction|
|Working Remotely from anywhere in the World||A site, workstation or Office is mandatory.|
|Can be an expensive means of Work e.g cost of electricity, the internet could be high||The company/Boss provides everything needed to work with.|
Everything in life has its good and bad sides, but Smart Working is more beneficial to humans as regards health and safety issues. But what is good for A might not be of benefit to B!
