Jobs that are in decline

Posted on December 23, 2017 at 11:31 pm

Over the past few decades there has been so many technological advances that certain jobs seem to be at risk of decline and possibly extinction in the near future.

Company owners are quick to realise that if they can automate a process by machinery or computers then they can save on salaries and make more profit in the long run. For this reason many jobs in manufacturing for example have started to be harder to find as they simply are not required as much as previously.

Although it is inevitable that this will happen over the next decade or so, it is important to remember that sometimes automated processes simply cannot replace a human being and in certain situations it may not be right to try and go this way.

Book publishing is another industry that has seen a massive decline over the past few years. Since the release of e-readers and phone / tablets that allow you to buy and download digital books, not as many people are buying physical books so there is less demand for them. Over time if this does not change then publishing may become a thing of the past.
