10 In-Demand Professions in The Near Future [INFOGRAPHIC]

Whatever behavior the economy displays that impacts on the job market, there are other major factors that influence the landscape of jobs and careers in the future.

Yes, we live in the digital age and this has a huge influence on all sectors, but not everyone is going to have to learn how to code or know how to design apps in order to find a satisfying career in the future.

Using various sources, Mary Kleim and Kate Simpson at Assignmentmasters have created a very interesting infographic highlighting some of the professions that will be in demand in the future in both the UK and USA.

It is refreshing to see that there is a focus on a wide range of sectors and that information technology does not dominate, although it naturally does feature.

Graduates and professionals with soft skills such as interpersonal skills, communication and listening will find worthy careers in the future.

The inclusion of what we think of as caring professions is interesting with the view that nurse practitioners and physician assistants will be in just as much demand in the future as they are today – no doubt dictated by the increasing age of the UK and US populations.

The infographic provides a nice summary for each of the 10 jobs. There’s a short description, the key skills required and the current average salary (from data collected for UK and US government resources).

How these salaries will change with the demand for the jobs can only be guessed at, but it gives anyone thinking about these positions a good idea of what they need to gain entry and how much they can earn when qualified to standard level.
