The job market is constantly changing. Due to increased digitization, automation, and artificial intelligence, some of today's professions may soon no longer be necessary. Does your job still stand the test of time?

Print media are increasingly being replaced by online media. Thanks to digitization, you can now read your newspaper or magazine online in the morning at breakfast, including updates.
Banking, insurance and investment are all increasingly done online. Bank branches will be smaller in the future and will have financial advisors and experts on staff.
