Question deleting "s" at end of words


I have a long list of professions, but they are all plural, meaning they all have an "s" added to the end of them. How would I go about removing the "s" at the end of each of the words all at one time, but without removing the "s" in other parts of the words?

Try a wildcard Find/Replace, where:
Find = s>
Replace = nothing
