Looking around at the world today seeing how fast things are changing, you find yourself asking, what are the best careers for the future? Most of us were raised to believe that the way to success was to get a college degree and get a safe and secure job, if there is such a thing. There are some professions that require a college degree, but many of us find ourselves unsure of what we want and after graduating end up in a job we really don’t like.
Many college graduates come out of school with massive debt and end up working as say, a bartender because they simply couldn’t find a job. Couple this with rising tuition costs which make it tougher for people to even afford college, and we have a real problem. Some economists are reporting that the real unemployment rate in the US is close to 20%, and the layoffs and corporate downsizing continues.
There are many trade schools offering certificate programs that can help you land a good job. The medical profession seems like a good one, if you don’t mind the odd hours and hospital or doctor office setting, and can be very rewarding and pay fairly well. For example as of 2008 the median annual wage of a registered nurse was $62,450.
Now let us look at some alternatives you may not be aware of. When looking for the best careers for the future it is best to think like an entrepreneur and pay attention to emerging trends. You may be surprised at what thinking outside the box and doing a little research might uncover.
Two of the biggest trends today are in technology and the internet and they are revolutionizing the way business is done. Every day millions of people are looking to the internet for solutions. The home based business industry now generates an annual revenue of $427 billion in the US alone. With no prior experience and very little start up cost it is possible to join a team of professional entrepreneurs, receive the training and tools to create a six figure plus income in as little as one year.
Gone are the days of high traffic commute, answering to an annoying boss, or any of the headaches and stress our parents had to go through. The future and the new economy is about LEVERAGE and FREEDOM.
There is only one catch. You have to be UNLIKE most people out there today and take ACTION. Most people don’t think like entrepreneurs, they don’t think outside the box, and that’s why they remain right where they are.
