With high unemployment and gloomy job forecasts, it's easy to become depressed about finding a new job.

Yet good news about the job market may be here for those who take the right approach. "Jobs are out there," says Roy Cohen, career coach and author of "The Wall Street Professional's Survival Guide." The key, he says, is to make yourself attractive to new employers and then keep a positive attitude during the job transition phase.

To make the leap from one job to another, you'll first need to understand what's happening in your industry, then identify your strengths and develop a plan.

Here, Bankrate has listed six jobs that are quickly going away, according to Yusuf Wilson, president and senior consultant of Wilson Training and Consulting Systems LLC in Bear, Del. Note the salary range of each job, as reported by Payscale.com. Then soak in expert advice on what to consider for a good replacement job.
