5 Top Jobs for the Next Decade

Whether you have just graduated from high school and are trying to decide on a major or you are established in your career and looking for a change, navigating the job market can be confusing. With most job markets, there is an ebb and flow based on the demand for goods. However, some jobs are bound to stand the test of time. Skywalk Group has done the research and compiled a list of jobs that should be in high demand for years to come.

1.       Computer Programmers

No surprise here, one of the most in-demand jobs is for computer programmers. From security breaches to AI production, the need for this job has no end in sight. Although in the past, many of these jobs were outsourced overseas, the security risks have begun to outweigh the benefits and many companies are deciding to keep these jobs in-house.

2.       Elder Care Specialist

Baby boomers are reaching the age where staying home is becoming hard if not impossible. These older Americans are turning, in record numbers, to assisted living communities. Unlike the past, these facilities now have amenities that appeal to even the most demanding resident, which requires a specific workforce. Candidates with gerontology and health care administration degrees or those with medical assisting courses on their resume will be perfect for this role.

3.       Day Care Provider

Even with the economy on the upswing, it is hard for many families to survive on one income. With both parents working outside of the home, the daycare business is booming. A degree in child development or early childhood education will help you get started with this career path.

4.       Environmental Engineer

Former small communities are starting to grow with an influx of people and jobs. On the opposite front, established cities are beginning to see a breakdown in infrastructure as old water lines and electrical grids begin to fail. These engineers help to oversee both new construction as well as renovations of older sites. Degrees in both environmental engineering as well as environmental science will give you a jumpstart into this growing field.

5.       Networking Specialist

In contrast to the computer programmers we spoke of earlier, a networking specialist concentrates on keeping all of the various devices in an organization connected. This job is ever-changing as technology continues to grow and improve. Because this job requires onsite care, it will never be outsourced overseas. Degrees in network administration and security will help you enter this ever-evolving field.

Whether you love to care for people or enjoy tinkering with technology, there are a variety of jobs that will fit your goals. If you are looking to make a change in your career path, Skywalk Group can help you find the perfect fit. Reach out to us today!
