As the times change, so too do the needs of society and the ways in which those needs can be met. Sometimes a given society will cease to have an interest in a certain commodity or pastime; sometimes a new technology will come along that revolutionizes the way a certain task is performed. Thus it is that many jobs cease to exist. And we don’t mean a large number of jobs of a given description are “lost”; we mean the entire job description itself vanishes. If one of these professions is on your resume, you might want to do a bit of updating before your next meeting with a hiring manager.
