According to CareerCast.com

CareerCast.com has released a list of the top 10 “endangered” jobs, which draws on data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The occupations are:

  • Mail Carrier
  • Farmer
  • Meter Reader
  • Newspaper Reporter
  • Travel Agent
  • Lumberjack
  • Flight Attendant
  • Drill-Press Operator
  • Printing Worker
  • Tax Examiner and Collector

As Forbes put it, “The theme this year seems to be paper.”

However, CareerCast publisher Tony Lee told the business publication that flight attendants appear to make the list because airline cost-cutting reduces the number of them needed on each flight, plus more of them seem to be staying in their jobs longer, meaning there would be fewer openings.
