Technology is developing at an unprecedented pace, and the job market is changing rapidly. Automation, artificial intelligence and changing consumer preferences are creating new professions, while others are becoming obsolete.

According to some predictions, many once-popular professions may disappear by the 2030s. New Trader U named 10 of them.

1. Taxi drivers

The advent of self-driving cars is set to revolutionize the transportation industry, and taxi drivers are among those most likely to be affected. Companies are actively investing in technology that could potentially completely replace taxi drivers.

2. Cashiers

Self-service systems and automated payment solutions are becoming increasingly common in retail stores, gradually eliminating the need for the traditional role of the cashier. These technologies provide cost savings for businesses and increase convenience for customers.

3. Travel agents

The emergence of online booking platforms and advanced chatbots has made the role of travel agents less important in vacation planning. Now travelers can easily book flights, hotels and tours without intermediaries. The convenience and accessibility of these digital tools have greatly reduced the reliance on traditional travel agents.

4. Bank operators

The development of online banking, mobile applications and ATMs significantly reduces the need for banking services that are provided during a visit to the bank. Customers can now easily manage their accounts and carry out various financial transactions without leaving home.

As banks invest in digital infrastructure and promote online and mobile banking, the demand for operator services will decrease.

5. Data entry specialists

Advances in automation and artificial intelligence have led to tools that can perform data entry tasks more efficiently and accurately than a human can. These technologies can process huge amounts of data, eliminate errors and work around the clock.

6. Warehouse workers

Warehouses are increasingly using robots with modern sensors and artificial intelligence to manage inventory, sort goods, and place orders. The use of robots in warehouses increases efficiency, reduces the risk of human error and minimizes the need for employees. As robotics advances, the role of warehouse workers is likely to diminish.

7. Telemarketers

With the advent of automated callback systems and customer service bots driven by artificial intelligence, the work of telemarketers is becoming obsolete. Technologies can handle a high volume of calls, provide personalized responses and work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

As AI chatbots become increasingly better at understanding and meeting customer needs, the need for telemarketers will decrease significantly.

8. Receptionists

Hotels and offices are increasingly implementing automated check-in systems and AI-based customer service solutions, reducing the need for front desk staff. As these technologies become more sophisticated and more widespread, the role of administrators is likely to diminish.

9. Correctors

AI-based tools are becoming increasingly sophisticated at detecting grammatical errors, improving sentence structure, and improving overall text quality.

As companies and individuals increasingly rely on these automated solutions to improve their texts, the need for proofreaders is expected to decrease. The cost savings and consistency provided by AI proofreading tools make them an attractive alternative to manual proofreading.

10. Clock repair masters

People's transition to smartwatches and durable digital watches, combined with changing consumer preferences, is reducing demand for traditional watch repair services. Modern watches are distinguished by increased strength and functionality, which reduces the need for frequent repairs.

In addition, the widespread adoption of smart watches has changed the expectations of consumers, and many of them, in case of problems, prefer replacement rather than repair.
