Healthcare, Education and Clean Energy Cited as In-Demand Jobs of Tomorrow

TAMPA, Fla., Aug. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- In the late 1980s, everyone wanted to study business management. Colleges and universities churned out millions of graduates who had watched Michael Douglas in Wall Street and believed they were going to be the next Gordon Gekko. Imagine their surprise when, in the early 1990s, corporate hiring trends shifted to heavily favor technology jobs! Certainly some of these graduates did just fine in the business world, but how many would have been happier and more successful with a computer degree?

While technology jobs have remained relevant, and almost certainly will continue to do so for the foreseeable future, the trend is changing again. In their report entitled Preparing the Workers of Today for the Jobs of Tomorrow, the President's Council of Economic Advisors notes that three fields are likely to grow faster than any other: healthcare, education and clean energy.

People are living longer lives as amazing medical advancements are made almost every year. This combination of an aging population and new discoveries has created a huge demand for healthcare professionals. Healthcare credentials at any level - from one-year Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) certifications to eight-year Medical Doctor (MD) professional degrees - can provide you with job security and good pay for decades to come.

The President recently challenged all Americans to pursue additional education. Better schools and more teachers are on the agenda of almost every state in the country, and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that universities will expand their teaching faculty by almost 30% through 2016. Teaching, especially at the elementary and post-secondary levels, can promise plenty of job opportunities if you earn an education degree.

In the summer of 2008, gas prices topped $4 a gallon all over the country. More and more often, we are forced to purchase the oil we need from nations that are hostile to our interests. And no matter where you go today, people are concerned about climate change. Clean energy sources offer real solutions to these problems, so both corporations and governments are investing billions of dollars into developing biofuels, solar power and other forms of alternative energy. A degree or certificate in environmental engineering or environmental science can help you join the rapidly expanding "green" job market.

Education Is Great - The Right Education Is Even Better

The millions of jobs that were lost during the recent economic crisis have made many Americans realize that they don't just need an education - they need the right education. Those with their sights set on success should take advantage of knowing what the in-demand jobs of tomorrow will be; it is degree and certificate programs in fields like nursing, teaching and environmental engineering that will allow students to enter the fastest-growing careers of the next decade.
