Hi Kassidie,

The top jobs that are in great demand now and in the future are the following:

1. Physicians - due to the aging population
2. Software engineers - we've move to an all digital world and more companies need this skill to continue to offer online services and products
3. Sustainability - the world needs more people in this profession
4. Pharmacist
5. Product Manager

Hi Kassidie,

Jobs are every changing in the need for them. That has been true since COVID came into our lives in 2020. I would say that you should consider what you already seem to enjoy and start there. What natural skills and abilities do you have? Mine is writing. I am sure that you can think of many jobs where writing would be a benefit. You should then consider how you want to use that skill and talent. I use my writing to train people. I could use it in marketing, to help write technical manuals, write movie scripts, and many other things.

Hi Kassidie,


Great question! There are a lot of great resources online about up and coming career fields. I've listed a few below for you to look at. I would suggest as you look these over and see what interests you to keep in mind that some of the fields require more education than others. For example being a registered nurse would take a four year education or a bachelors degree while being a physical therapist is going to require 6 to 7 years which means completing a bachelors degree first and than pursuing a masters degree. Also keep in mind a larger salary does not equal happiness in your career. If a career in engineering offers more money but you don't enjoy math than you probably wouldn't be happy as an engineer. A few good questions you can ask yourself to help you narrow down a field that you find interesting are: what do I enjoy studying? what am I good at? what kind of work environment would I enjoy? Quick paced and busy or low-key? How much control do I want over my time? If you are able to do an internship or even go "job shadow" in the field you think you may be interested in that could help as well. In the mean time check out these articles to give you an idea of jobs that will be in-demand over the next 10 years.
