What are the careers which are in demand and has a good remuneration now and in the future

Hi Niyaaz, thank you for your question! My suggestion is that if you haven't already done so, you might first want to ask yourself some different questions along the lines of "what am I interested in?" and "What are my talents / what things am I good at?". Then after this you can move on to investigating ways to turn your particular interests and capabilities into a successful career. Otherwise you run the risk of choosing a path which will not bring you long-term happiness or in which you may not be successful regardless of how hard you try or how big the market opportunity may be. Mind you that I'm not suggesting that you blindly "follow your dream" with no consideration as to how real your chances of success may be - rather that you first take a good inventory of the things that make you happy and that you do well, and then look for ways to match these up to available options for a successful long-term career. Best of luck Niyaaz and hope this may be helpful to you! Julian Clark

Frank’s Answer

Would recommend reading the book "The Future is Faster Than You Think" by Peter Diamandis as he shares the key technology trends that are converging and what new opportunities this will create in terms of future career opportunities. With artificial intelligence, AR/VR, quantum computing and other tech trends, many traditional industries will be disrupted and companies will be looking for next generation talent that can come into their company with these skills. Also, don't forget to focus on self learning and development, leveraging on-line free Youtube seminars, for example, where you can pick up basic skills (eg. coding, etc)

I agree with the others on digital and automations, it is the wave of the future. I have to say learning a trade of your own that you can be your own boss would be something to think about as well.

I spoke to an old wise man asking for his advice on a degree. He told me Sales & Marketing will always be needed no matter the day & age and I have to agree. Companies will always need to advertise & market and will need someone to sell their products.

Cybersecurity or anything IT is obviously promising as well.

To add to the other messages here, I would say the other career that will continue to be in demand, and if it is of interest, will be anything in Cybersecurity, with more being done online and in cloud environments, security will always be a great area.

To add to Michael's response, you must also see your interest in the particular career. There was a time when data science was so new and now kids are being taught python and machine learning. So with advancing time and technology, there will be a spectrum of careers that can offer everyone money but the career that interests you the most will help you work efficiently and also earn more eventually, in this competitive environment.
Hope it helps!😊

Hi Niyaaz,

As far as IT / Information Technology goes, I highly recommend learning Cloud Computing concepts as everything is increasingly moving towards Cloud in the field. It is becoming the norm for most offices and corporations to choose to have their applications and even regular servers hosted in the Cloud rather than on-premises.

There are multiple different paths for Cloud Computing, whether it's learning how to manage Cloud Computing architecture or going deep into serverless options such as AWS Lambda to making Alexa Apps, the field is gigantic and multifaceted. I believe this field will be in demand and even much higher demand as we move into the future of tech.

Michael’s Answer

To add on to the trend of automation, careers revolving around Artificial Intelligence seem to have been increasing in demand. Getting yourself some experience with coding fundamentals like Python would be a great place to start, and from there trying to learn the basics of algorithms and data structures. There's also a vast amount of courses on AI/ML available on sites like YouTube and Udemy, which can help you figure out if its something you are interested in pursuing for a career.

Tamisha’s Answer

There will always be a need for service support in most industries, even with the advancements of AI/ML. Understanding the basics of customer service can help you apply the information to tagging data which would drive the answers of the chatbots and other automation. Starting at the beginning can be a useful skill to apply to different industries either customer-facing or behind the scenes.
