Career counselor Helen Godfrey said be wary of job "trends".

“When we think about the 1980s, a little bit of HTML could get you an $80,000 a year job. Now, that’ s not the case. So, if you just went in it for the money, long term, it probably would not be a good fit for you,” said Godfrey.

She said jobs on the decline includes manufacturers, travel agents, cashiers, bank tellers and stock managers.

Brick layers, are also probably going to become a thing of the past because right now, there’s a machine that can lay 1,200 bricks per hour, compared to a person which is between three and  500 bricks an hour,” said Godfrey

She added automatic cars might cause taxi drivers to soon be out of a job. In Germany, there's a voluntary milking system in Germany allows cows to go get milked when they feel like it.

Godfrey said go for something you love and that's sustainable for a lifetime.
