In 8 years, the following most demanded professions are assumed 👇
Tech industry jobs are expected to grow and stay in high demand
The tech industry is one of the fastest-growing industries in the world and in the United States. Many jobs fall under the umbrella of the tech industry, including computer programmers, information security analysts, computer support specialists, software developers, network and computer systems administrators, and more. Even within the tech industry, advances in technology mean that some jobs become obsolete and new jobs become necessary, allowing for a fast turnover and a vibrant, dynamic industry.
Food service careers in restaurants and fast food expected to see fast growth
The population is growing and with it the demand for catering services. Restaurants, fast food establishments, cafes, food service outlets, bars and other related services will grow significantly in the coming years. A busy workforce with a high need for the convenience that food delivery can provide is also fueling a rapid increase in food service jobs.
Jobs in the healthcare industry will continue to be in-demand as the population grows and ages
The healthcare industry is a broad category that includes a wide range of different professions. Many of these professions will grow in the coming years as a result of many factors. First, human life expectancy has increased, which means that the planet has an aging population, so more and more people will need health care and medical support as they age. Secondly, a recent report from the International Center for Nurse Migration states that by 2030 a large number of nurses are likely to retire, leading to an employment vacuum and many open vacancies that will need to be filled.
A projected growth in arts and entertainment careers indicates a demand for joy and new knowledge
Another area expected to experience significant growth in the coming years is arts and entertainment. Like healthcare, this is a broad category that includes many different occupations. Some of these areas may be experiencing growth because of an increased investment in joy, escapism, and new learning opportunities. As with the food service industry, many areas of the entertainment industry experienced shutdowns in recent years, so some of the new growth is expected to make up for that deficit. Film and television, music and dance, fine arts, and other forms of entertainment are all included in this category.
There will be a continued need for teachers and other educators
Education is an area of employment that is guaranteed to have a constant need for new workers. The world’s population is growing, which means that there is a growing need for teachers to work with students of all ages. Teacher shortages are quite common, especially in countries where education is underfunded.
Jobs in travel and transportation are expected to be of higher need
Modern families today can live in 5-10 different parts of the world: parents in one country, children in others, grandchildren in others. Technological development has expanded the opportunities to be a citizen of the world. Therefore an increasingly globalized world means that more people need to travel for work or to visit family, relatives, friends in other countries. Jobs in travel and transportation can take several forms, from people who drive or pilot passenger vehicles to those who provide customer service and hospitality to travelers. While some travel-based jobs are becoming outdated, like travel agents, many others are becoming increasingly popular and necessary.
Business’ environmental impacts on the world have resulted in a higher demand for environmental careers
Some examples: scientists and specialists, conservation scientists, and foresters. Some environmental careers are currently expected to grow more slowly than average, like zoologists and wildlife biologists (5%). However, new opportunities may soon arise.
Environmental jobs tend to require post-secondary education in the natural sciences. Most of these jobs require at least a bachelor’s degree, though environmental science and protection technicians typically require an associate’s degree. Jobs in environmental conservation often require field work, sometimes working in delicate ecological areas or places that have experienced the consequences of natural disasters or pollution. Many environmental workers work for non-profit conservation agencies, though any company might hire a conservation officer to ensure compliance with environmental efforts.
Skilled trades such as construction workers, plumbers and electricians will continue to be in high demand.
