What will the employment landscape look like in the year 2020? What about 2030 and beyond? What’s next? Where will the jobs be located? What industries?
Technology is moving so fast I don’t think anyone knows what the employment landscape will look like in the future. We can make some educational guesses based on history, but that’s about it.
My guess? Just based on my life and the changes I’ve witnessed in my 47 years, technology will rule the day. That’s obvious, right? But the crazy thing about this technology boom is how fast things are changing. You buy the newest technical gadget and in a few short months it’s almost obsolete.
Technology and anything to do with it is a good industry for the future. Remember, you are dealing with technology and the rapid changes, but so are companies.
If companies don’t keep up with these changes they won’t be around very long. So companies are trying everything to make their jobs quicker, easier, and more productive.
I personally like the medical, technology, construction and engineering, transportation, accounting and legal fields for the future.
In these industries you have to physically do something. Perform Surgery, hammer a nail, design a building, transport all those wonderful products we buy, count the money and prosecute and defend us in court. These industries will change, yes, but they won’t go away. If you’re just starting out in your career or changing careers, look at these industries. I hope this helps.
Good luck to you!
