Is Your Job One Of The Ten That Could Disappear?

Some new research from Canadian job search board Workopolis suggests, as you might think, that when the world changes, so do the types of jobs that are in demand. But the site goes further and suggests that at least five types of work will disappear after ten years, and another five could be in danger.

Of course, given a prediction that half of all jobs today will disappear by 2030 because of massive changes in some industries, a handful of positions would seem nothing in comparison. But the difference between ten years and 26 is significant, and if Workopolis is correct, people in these jobs could get a head start on new careers before they lose their present ones.
