There are some occupations that may no longer be in demand in the coming years, due to technology, automation or economic transformation. Here are some examples of occupations that may be affected:
Factory workers: Increasing automation in factories, with increasingly sophisticated robots and machines, may reduce the need for human labour to perform certain tasks.
Postal workers: With the rise of digital media to communicate and send parcels globally, postal workers could be replaced by automated transport systems.
Administrative workers: As technology advances and digitalisation allows information to be stored and shared more efficiently, there is less and less need for workers to perform administrative tasks such as data entry and file management.
Bus and truck drivers: Autonomous cars and self-driving vehicles could significantly reduce the need for drivers to provide transportation.
Bank workers: As technology advances to manage financial transactions more efficiently, there is less and less need for workers to perform banking-related tasks such as processing transfers, credit analysis.
It is important to note that this list is not exhaustive, and that there are many other occupations that could be affected by technological and economic changes. It is important to take these trends into account in order to assess career prospects and adapt to these ongoing changes. It is therefore important to stay informed and adapt by continuing to learn and train throughout one’s working life.
