G. Mark’s Answer

Okay, first let me be "that guy" who does a buzz kill by giving "sage advice". Don't look for a six-figure salary first. First look for something that makes you happy. Sure, a six-figure salary will help with that, but hear me out. I tell my students to do what they like. Sure, I'm not saying that if you only like to watch clouds and sit on the beach that that's necessarily a good life goal. But let's face it -- making a lot of money at something you hate is not likely to be pleasant. That being said, I'll get to what you really wanted to hear. IN GENERAL (obviously there are exceptions), there are several areas that will pull in good job security, money, advancement, etc.. These are hot areas. Internet of Things (IOT) is making huge strides and finding applications everywhere. Why? Because, well... it's the INTERNET. And it's EVERYTHING that's connected to it. Another thing is Artificial Intelligence. After a few decades of fits and starts, AI, and in particular Machine Learning (ML) is hitting its stride. You can see evidence of it in all aspects of business and everyday life. Talk to Siri? Cortana? Amazon Echo? How about Markov Chains being used to predict natural language processing and translations? Virtual Assistants on company websites? And where do you think AI is getting all that data to learn from? Big Data. Why? Because the IOT is generating incredible amounts of data every second and ML is learning to find patterns and predict everything from physics to human social interaction to the stock market. And robots don't forget. As time goes on, the old aphorism "those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it" will be apparent not to apply to robots -- Machine Learning. So you want a job that's 1) likely to be secure, 2) make some bucks and 3) extremely awesome, go with those. Sure, you can find instances or jobs where you won't get six figures. But if I were to bet, I'd say those three areas look pretty sweet. When I was younger, saying you were "in computers" was cool enough. But let's face it, today if you say you're "into computers" you'd probably get a response like, "Yeah, so's my kid." AI, IOT, Big Data -- inescapable and very, very entertaining.


Thank you so much for your answer! I definitely want to do something that makes me happy I just don't exactly know what that would be but I will look into your suggestions and try to figure some things out. Once again I appreciate it. Axel L.

Very true follow your heart and stick to it rest will come. Naresh Tikader

Ani’s Answer

Refer to this article below for the list of top 8 high paying engineering jobs:

https://newengineer.com/insight/8-of-the-most-in-demand-engineering-jobs-for-2019-1126177

As you can imagine, Data Analytics is currently the field that has the highest demand and pay. Data Analytics, Machines Learning, and Artificial Intelligence will be the game changing areas that will revolutionize the field of automation. It might still take 5-10 years for lot of things to get automated, so at least for a decade this skill set will be high in demand.

Also I strongly feel a Cyber Security engineering job will also be in high demand considering how companies and countries are subject to Cyber attacks these days.


Anything in computer science. There is a need for software engineers. I echo what Ani said as well. Of of those careers in in extremely high demand. Natalie Javid

With all businesses now in a place of more uncertainty, some of the best advice I can give would be to start learning the technology industry.

Hi Axel,

Don't go just with the money...think you will have to do that job/service for the next 50 years...so it has to be something you like. And when you are doing something you love...money will come. First find something you like to do or you are very good at it. If you have no idea...start volunteering and try different things. During this crisis, Finance and IT people are unlikely to lose their job, which is great. For future, I would suggest degrees/majors for Artificial Intelligence:

Charles’s Answer

I would say Data Science or Data Analytics. Data is the new gold. It's not just about crunching numbers but also being able to tell the story represented by the data and help gather insights that can fuel business intelligence . Living in the Maryland area, Data Science is a rapidly growing field in the Federal government space.

Pradip’s Answer

You hardly ever run into a list of great jobs that don’t include Software Engineer, and for good reason. With how important smartphones, computers, and the Internet have become in our daily lives, companies need plenty of talented people to help them create cutting-edge technology, and truly skilled individuals can be hard to come by. In the future, this field is only expected to get hotter — the Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts a 24 percent job growth between 2016 and 2026.

I had gone through couple of answers and no doubt an engineer , medical practitioner, lawyer earns very well and good in demand. But advice here is be good in whatever you do. You will always find people who are just average earners irrespective of their profession being in high demand. Its depend on the continuous investment that you do in your career that makes you much in demand.

Thanks

2. Cyber Security

4. Cloud technologies

These are broad domains and need much more scrutiny as to what falls where.
I would suggest going through all the online course portals,Udemy,Coursera,etc(naming a few) providing nitty-gritty against each domain and you can start off based on your level (beginner,intermediate,expert), choose and complete them to see if these interest you.

Munwar’s Answer

From a career in Information Technology standpoint, cloud technologies are in high demand these days. So a course or certification in Azure, AWS or GCP is a nice to have. Some other practices like Cloud Migration/Adoption or DevOps are great career options these days.

Munwar recommends the following next steps:

Take a course in Udemy or Linux Academy and try to get certified in it.
