What Occupations Are Needed in the Future?

By August 8, 2019 No Comments

This is the time of year when college kids graduate, and high school students start to enter the college.  I know with my kids we have had many discussions about what careers they should peruse.

What industry may have the greatest number of new jobs created?

I found some statistics on the Department of Labor that they had indicated that three of the top four occupations projected to create the greatest number of new jobs Nationwide between 2016 and 2026 are in the healthcare industry.

Those three occupations are personal care aides, projected at 777,600 new jobs, registered nurses, with 438,100 new jobs, and home health aides, with 431,200 new jobs.

What does this mean for the future?

I think the strong demand for healthcare providers may be due to the rising age of the baby boomers.
