Whether you’re considering going to school or just want to choose a job that will have security down the road, it makes sense to gravitate toward industries that are currently strong and expected to grow in the future. Here are some of the top industries showing strength now as well as the promise of more growth down the road:
Pet Products and Services
Despite the economic downturn of 2008, jobs related to pets have appeared almost recession-proof. Perhaps this is because of the unconditional love that pets can offer when things aren’t going well in life? Regardless, jobs at pet supply companies as well as veterinarians and vet techs continue to show promise going forward. Groomers, pet boarding companies and trainers will all be in demand as well.
Jobs Related to Children
From child care services to products that kids can use, jobs related to children show no signs of slowing down. If you love kids, consider pursuing employment in child care or working for a company that manufactures toys or educational products geared toward kids.
Eco-Friendly Products and Consulting
From buying eco-friendly home goods to using “green” construction products, more and more people are conscious of living and working in a way that’s friendly to the environment. The “green” trend shows no signs of slowing down, making it a strong sector to pursue for current or future employment. You’ll also feel good about your job when you choose a career that supports eco-friendly living.
The healthcare field is another industry that might be described as recession-proof. As the population ages, we all need access to quality health care. Some of the most in-demand jobs will include physical therapists, medical technology experts, and jobs in the eldercare field.
We should all pursue work that we feel a passion for, but pursuing work in an industry that’s thriving can make finding employment much easier. Consider these growing industries for your next job or career.
