Choosing the right career path and profession will be – again, as every year - a familiar plight for a lot of young people and their respective parents, who want to make sure their offspring chooses wisely. Suddenly, becoming a popstar, a football player, a princess, a ballerina or a train conductor give way to more realistic options, based on individual talents and interests. School helped get here as well, by offering the opportunity for career days, counselling and internships. Next to personal talents and financial security, the actual offers and opportunities delivered by the job market are also of utmost importance. We’ll try to look into the future and consult our very own crystal ball to tell you, which jobs are future proof. The list below is no ranking.
1. Technical professions – there’s always going to be a need for good engineers, because regardless whether we want to produce clean energy, build more efficient means of transportation or send manned missions to outer space or the deepest bottom of our oceans, we’ll have to rely on them finding brilliant solutions.
2. IT – informational technology is already an important part of our everyday lives and that is very unlikely to change. Programmers, system administrators, network engineers etc. will keep on making sure that we, the regular user, have the easiest time using technology. And answering all of our ignorant questions.
