The job market has been particularly volatile in recent years as the economic changes around us have taken effect. So in light of this, what are the best jobs for 2013? Which skills should we use learn to put us in a good position for these jobs?
Information Technology Specialists
The information technology business is booming and only set to continue – it really is a revolution. This survey from Computer World shows what areas of IT were in demand for 2012 and 2013 will be about building on these skill sets.
As we are now living longer, healthcare continues to be a good, reliable field to enter. Occupational therapists, dentists, doctors; these jobs are always needed and can open up many opportunities including the opportunity to travel and move around as well as many transferrable skills . There is also the booming area of alternative health care (massage therapist, acupuncturist, reflexologist etc.) which is now becoming more and more mainstream and often offered within the traditional health care strands too.
Education & Employment Advisors
In this time of flux, there is as always the demand for HR managers and the like, but also the need for education professionals, career coaches, specialists and advisors to help people cope with the changes afoot and to know how to make themselves as employable as possible in a changing employment landscape .
Financial advice is always a priority and even more so in 2013, as the impact of a global recession continues to have effect and people take more responsibility for their personal finances. Accountants and financial planners are needed to help people to really know what is happening with their money and avoid the mistakes of the past.
