Here’s 5 Jobs To Avoid.

Actually it might be easy to avoid these jobs, since they are drying up quickly! It’s a new week and if you are getting a new start on a life or a career, these would be choices I’d stay away from, if you want to be gainfully employed.

This story from Yahoo Education “5 Jobs With No Future” explains

“Information Clerk”

Expected Job Growth 2012 – 2022*: -2 percent

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, information clerks perform clerical tasks such as collecting data, maintaining records, and providing information to customers. They also prepare routine office correspondence like bills and orders.

Why It’s on Death’s Door: The world is going digital, and that has some serious consequences for these professionals.

According to the Department of Labor, growth will be stunted as businesses automate and consolidate their administrative functions.

Or “Office Clerk”

“Expected Job Growth 2012 – 2022*: +6 percent

Office clerks take care of a variety of administrative tasks, such as answering telephones, typing, and maintaining records, notes the U.S. Department of Labor.

Why It’s On Death’s Door: While it’s true that offices won’t be disappearing any time soon, don’t expect lots of job growth for general office clerks. The main reason for the bleak years ahead for this career is increased digitization and automation, says Heathfield. So there’s less need for office clerks when computer programs can do so much.

So find a job as Web Developer or an Event Planner. THOSE jobs are expected to grow more than 20% over the next few years. Good luck!
