37 jobs that are quickly disappearing in the US

Thanks in part to email, Facebook, and Twitter, mail carriers may be all but obsolete in the not-so-distant future.

By 2024, the Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a 28% decline in postal-service jobs, about 136,000 fewer positions than 2014.

But mail carriers aren’t the only ones whose jobs are disappearing. Technology and market shifts have affected a variety of fields.

Based on the BLS’s occupational outlook data, here are 37 jobs that could be on their way out:

37. Computer operators

They monitor and control electronic computer and peripheral electronic data-processing equipment to process business, scientific, engineering, and other data according to operating instructions.

Predicted number of people who will hold this job in 2024: 49,500
