I read today about 10 jobs that did not exist a decade ago. http://finance.yahoo.com/career-work/article/111973/jobs-that-didnt-exist-10-years-ago
It quickly came to mind jobs that are now gone, for good:
Telephone switchboard operators
Gas station attendants (who used to wipe our windshields and check the oil)
Milkman, mailman, newspaper boy (fewer jobs)
Typist – (transcription)
Answering service operator
Borders bookstore owner
Shoe repairman or tailor
Toll collector (some States still have them)
Translator (gone soon)
Tutor (moving online)
Jeopardy player (Watson won)
The time, they are a changin! The press made a note that he wasn’t on top of his performance in Las Vegas (I did not see it at the Grammys).
Again, everything is “blowing in the wind”, including jobs from a pre-digital bygone era. Photo copy clerks should learn Search Engine Optimizing skills to get jobs in the 21st century. But then, watch out for Google algorithm.
Found this in WSJ Opinion page, which went much more in depth about the disappearance of traditional jobs.
