Top 15 Jobs Threatened by Technology

Factory robot manufacturing arm.

Automation in the workplace has been a concern for hundreds of years, but new technology may bring it to unprecedented saturation. A recent study conducted by Oxford University studied the likelihood of various jobs becoming automated, and the results are a little surprising. Not only are simple, repetitive tasks in danger of being taken over by robots, but so are some jobs that require creative thinking and strong interpersonal skills such as retail sales associates and paralegals.

Unless you have an intense passion for a certain career path, it's important to consider long-term job stability when planning your future. What may be available today might be gone tomorrow. That shouldn't discourage anyone from picking jobs from this list below, but keep the trends presented by SFGate for the top 15 jobs threatened by technology in mind.
