High In Demand Jobs
Despite the grim economy, there are still some high in demand jobs available. Certain professions are fairly immune to an economic downturn, and even better, they pay well. Below you’ll see a list of some of these in demand jobs. They do each require previous education, experience, and possible certifications, but if you’re looking for a good job with good pay, the more of these you have acquired, the higher your pay could be. The time and effort spent on education and certifications are well worth the advantage of a secure position.
- IT developers: The field of information technology is always advancing. Just like new cars, your personal computer is considered out-of-date the moment you buy it-imagine how quickly the workforce needs to advance to keep up. If you’re skilled in this field, as well as business savvy, you can easily find an open position.
- Web design professionals: Similar to IT in a way, businesses need people to keep their websites current, functional, and attractive. Most will want you to have related marketing knowledge and abilities, as you’ll be responsible for organizing (and potentially writing) their web copy. They’ll rely on you to help drive customers to action.
- Accountants: People will always be asking for help when managing their finances, especially businesses, and they will pay well for good help. Businesses need people that are certified, organized, technologically savvy, and can communicate well.
- Administration: If you have the right experience, you could be entrusted to help with budgeting and managing business projects. Administrators are needed to keep businesses running smoothly, especially when the market is tight.
- Health care: An average job search right now will turn up multiple listings in this field. Nurses, medical assistants, home health aides, and the like are always in demand. Certain positions require only minimal training and the right certification, but if you want the big bucks, invest in a full education and you’re all but guaranteed a secure career.
- Attorneys: They’re always in need, but in a time of foreclosures and busy collection agencies, attorneys are sure to be enlisted for legal help. The advice you can provide is worth a lot, and if you possess the right skills, including database management, internet searching, and exceptional computer abilities, law firms are looking for you.
