So, Yesterday, I posted "The Top 10 Most Stressful Jobs" according to Careercast.com. While I was compiling that list, I saw ANOTHER Top 10 that caught my eye. "The Top 10 Most Endangered Jobs". Now, this is NOT to say that your job is in jeopardy right now. But, if you're in one of these fields, you can expect to see a decline in the number of jobs in that field by the year 2024, and it probably wouldn't be a bad idea to keep a fresh copy of that resume' handy. In any event, here's ANOTHER list for ya!
