Others, such as animator, internet executive, and cosmetic dentistry, may be an interesting new job but there are probably very few jobs available in these newly emerging occupations.
Not bad guesses, but maybe not good ones either. What is missing on this list are several other jobs that clearly are hot ones for the decade ahead. Most of those jobs are found in the rapidly growing fields of computers and medicine and include such occupations as a dental hygienist, medical assistant, physical therapist, speech-language pathologist, an audiologist, computer programmer, computer scientist, and webmaster. There are other hot jobs for the upcoming future include management analysts and let not forget about the consultants, public relations managers, paralegals, and the best chefs. What if you are in sales, marketing, engineering, travel, and the elementary and secondary teaching, your jobs prospects look excellent in the decade ahead.
The future will eventually tell us whether or not these and other jobs were really will eventually tell us whether or not these and other jobs were really the best ones. For now, if you are already in one of those jobs, such a list will probably make you feel really amazing, and making it really good one list if you are near the top of the best job list.
As we will start to see later, these ranking are going to be very close to others’ rankings in the next few blogs. Here is a question that is on a lot of people minds but what do they suggest to you the curious reader or job seeker? Are these the type of jobs you want to pursue? Are they offering a brighter career future for you in terms of earnings, security, job satisfaction, and location? Are these type of jobs going to undergo dramatic transformations in very near future or decade ahead? What are the new skills, schooling, and training are you going to need in order to attain the jobs and level of income you so dream of. Ask yourself if you have the proper mix of interests, skills and the motivations to continue long-term goal in these jobs?
What is so common about most of the top jobs on these and other lists is the fact that most such jobs require relatively high levels of schooling and training. High earning and job security will go to those who are skilled in the job markets of today and tomorrow. There have been studies that have shown a relationship between education and earnings. Here is an example, a lifetime earning of individuals with only a high education like mine is estimated to be about one- fourth of those with a degree, such as in medicine and law, and about one-half of those with a bachelor’s degree. A person without a high school education will make about one-third of those with a degree. According to the U.S Department of labor’s for this year is about 18 of the 25 occupations with the largest and fastest employment growth, which also includes high pay and low unemployment, require at least a bachelor’s degree. These studies tend to confirm what we have known for a long time – schooling is closely related to earning: the higher the educational level, the higher the earning. Education and training also increase the career mobility of people. So in all thought the higher the education level, the greater the possibility of the career advancement and the ability to successfully change jobs and careers.
