It’s that time of year again. The once vibrant leaves turn shades of brown and fall silently to the forest floor and the morning air takes on a crisp chill. Yes, the calendar year is coming to an end. But more importantly, a new year is about to begin. It’s that time of year when you begin to take stock of your career goals and evaluate your progress. It’s also time to look at the 2020 job market.
So let’s get things started by asking, “Where will the jobs be next year?”
The 2020 Job Market
A lot has changed since this time last year. The economy has begun to plateau. Global political turmoil has led to instability and uncertainty in many financial sectors. As a result, some say the future is primed for significant upheavals at home and abroad. All of this has people asking themselves, “Where will I be able to find work in the coming year?” Doom and gloom aside, the answer lies in the same place it always has… in those industries poised for growth.
The trick, of course, is determining the industries that will fuel the 2020 job market.
If you had to make a career move today or even start your own business, you’d of course want to focus on an industry that was going to be growing. This infographic from Nextpunch.com reveals the 10 fastest growing industries between now and 2020. As you’ll see, healthcare sectors continue to lead the way. Your career taking you onto a more trade-oriented path? Or technical? Check out the growth in masonry work or satellite communications (with an anticipated annual salary of $89K!).
Take a look at these trends. Make a confident prediction of where the market is heading. Then prepare yourself for a potential career move in the coming year.
The future is always uncertain. So prepare for the adventure!
