Top 20 Emerging Jobs….

“To Stand Still is to be left Behind”

Times are changing. Often what we think would last forever, changes in a moment–without warning, and without notice. No one is exempt. If you are a business leader, you may be contemplating industry changes and its impact on your business. On the other hand, you may be an individual thinking of a career change or better yet, if you are thinking of staying put in your career for many more years to come, it might be a good idea to take a look at LinkedIn’s Emerging Jobs report, that was recently published. The report provides information on the changes in jobs/careers. Jobs will grow to over 11.5 Million by 2026, as reported by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Technology…The Enabler

It’s no surprise that most industries are being penetrated by the enabling influx of technology. The areas covered are:

  • The high Growth in Technology jobs
  • The importance of Soft Skills
  • Jobs with High Mobility (Freelancing anyone)?
  • Jobs that exist with a Low Supply of Talent
  • New and Emerging Skills

But before you rush to cry out in alarm, may I suggest that you look deeper. Though your career path may be included in the evolution (see Mnemonic pictorial graph), check ways in which you may Conjure up the courage to go full speed ahead and embrace the change. This not only pertains to individuals, but to employers who must keep in tandem with the change to see what’s happening in the global and local marketplace.

Remember, to stand still is to be left behind.

If you are an organzational leader pondering what’s holding back your organization from achieving success, or an individual that wants to ensure you are prepared, let’s connect.

Cheers!
