I just read an article about future jobs by Thomas Fray. Actually he has very broad insights about the future. You can find more information about him and his works from this link.

I totally agree that most of the jobs we see today will not exist in future. We improve technology so fast that i think most of us will witness this dramatic change. Thomas Fray listed 55 future jobs, and I took 10, which i thought was the most interesting.  Below I will detail most of the job titles in my own words, and you can access the original article from this link.
