Jobs in demand are changing all the time. 10 years ago if you told someone you spent your day on Facebook and Twitter for work, they would look at you like you were crazy. While new jobs are being made, older jobs are needed less and less. New software and technology makes some jobs obsolete. For example, when new technology came out, it made many phone operators completely useless, resulting in thousands of people losing their jobs. Today jobs, software, and technology are constantly changing and getting better and more efficient. According to recent studies by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, here are top 10 careers that are slowly dying out.
