Jobs of the Future

dream job next exitA recent article in Fast Company discusses jobs of the future, and how to get them. Naturally, tech jobs are at the top of the list. But there are other, less obvious findings, too. Here are a few interesting points.

  • Construction and health care jobs will grow, as the economy rebounds and baby boomers age.
  • The fastest growing jobs are in business intelligence, UX design, and mobile development.
  • Middle management jobs are being phased out. The conclusion here being that being a highly paid professional no longer necessarily requires a fancy management title.
  • The new “career path” isn’t so straight and clear as before. As the demand for tech workers continues to grow, the range of backgrounds will also grow. For example, you won’t just see a graphic design major in a designer role; you may also see a psychology or other major in these roles, as long as that worker possesses important skills that translate to success at the job.

What do you think of these findings? Do you have any of your own predictions to add?
