As technology becomes increasingly present in our everyday lives, many jobs seem to have shifted, disappeared, or started to fade away
Here are six jobs that might disappear in 10 years, according to Bleu Bloom:
1- Retail cashier
As self-service checkouts and online purchasing become increasingly popular, the typical retail cashier might seem to be struggling in the future.
Technology has allowed human beings to be able to shop and purchase with no human interaction needed in between.
The phone is no longer the only way to communicate, in a world where you can text or email. Therefore, the job of telemarketing seems to not have a place with all the other methods and strategies of new marketing systems.
3- Travel Agent
You might not need a travel agent already, but in ten years it seems that travel agencies will have to shut down completely.
Why would you need a travel agent when you can simply book online, compare between the cheapest flights and hotels and collect your ticket.
4- Taxi driver
You will not have to shout the word “Taxi” anymore or walk down the streets till you find a cab.
As ride hailing apps are finding their way in the market, normal taxi drivers will either have to find a way to follow the trend, or simply find other jobs.
5- Publishers and printers
As print media is fading out of the industry, digital media is taking over. This means publishing companies might not exist in a few years due to this technology shift.
6- Postal workers
Email communication made it easier for people to send messages and receive them with less time, less effort, and less money. People who still enjoy sending postcards will probably have to consider using the email more often.
