If you’re going to spend time and energy on developing a career, then you’ll want to ensure that at the very least, it’ll still exist in the future. Yet this is not necessarily the case. Studies have shown that around 40% of jobs are at threat of being lost in the next decade or two through the rise of automation and AI. And these jobs aren’t just in the manual labor sector; there are plenty of professional jobs that are under threat, too. As such, it’s recommended that you dedicate your time and energy to a career that won’t just exist in the future but which will be thriving. You’ll find it much easier to reach professional fulfillment if you’re in an industry that makes success possible. 

In this blog, we’re going to take a look at some examples of jobs that you can start today and which will have a bright future. 

IT Security

There’s value in working in more or less any aspect of the tech world. But the one that is expected to experience a boom in the coming years is IT security. We’ve seen in recent years a growing number of damaging data breaches, which has made the need for IT security experts all the more urgent. Indeed, if the past decade has seen a race to get everyone online, the forthcoming decade will be to ensure that everyone can be online securely. The threat of cybercrime is not going away anytime soon. If you can train yourself to always be one step ahead of the criminals, then you’ll find that you can always get work.

Understanding Data

There’s a lot of data in the world. And, of course, websites and companies are still collecting the data. The issue is that there aren’t enough people who know how to make sense of the data. Data has the potential to be the new oil, but only the potential. If there’s no one who can look at the data and make some sense of it, then it’s of little value. This is an emerging market, which has cons and pros. On the one hand, there’s no established route for getting into the industry. On the other hand, if you can get in on the ground floor, you’ll be on the cutting edge of an industry that will be huge in the coming years. 


It’s easier than ever to get a company started these days. But this can also make winning customers a little more difficult. After all, there’s just a lot of competition! If a company is going to find success, then it’ll need the help of marketing experts. If you can always get a feel for a brand and know how to communicate ideas to a large audience, then you’ll find plenty of opportunities available to you. It used to be that only large companies would hire marketing experts. But these days, they’re essentially a necessity for companies of all sizes. If you’re going to go down this route, then it’s best to find a speciality. Could it be social media, or blog writing, or Google ads? Or a mixture of all of the above? 

Healthcare Needs

People will always need nurses and doctors. After all, there aren’t too many things — if anything — that people value more than their health! And actually, healthcare professionals are even more in demand now than they have been in recent years. The changing demographics mean that the demand for nurses is expected to grow significantly in the coming years. There aren’t too many jobs for life around anymore, but this can be one of them! There’s also plenty of scope for growing and developing your nursing career, too. If you want to step up, then you can look at accredited online msn programs. They’ll make you eligible to apply for more advanced nursing roles.

Global Logistics

The world is getting smaller, but it’s still a pretty big place. There’s increasing levels of trade taking place between countries in all corners of the globe. But of course, those trades don’t just happen. They’re the result of robust logistics. If you have a creative mind and know how to handle complex problems, then perhaps a career in logistics will be right for you. There’s already a lot of trade between countries, but it’s expected that the trade will become even more pronounced in the coming years. 


As with healthcare, teaching will always be in demand. There will, at some point, be a push to teach the next generation with robots, but it won’t work. There’s too much of an emotional connection between students and teachers for humans to be taken out of the equation. There is a wide range of options when it comes to teaching. You can teach tiny kids, teenagers, adults, and more. If you’ve got a passion for teaching and want to make the world a better place, then this might be the path for you. 


Creative Arts

Robots will do many good things, but they won’t move us in a way that an artist can. We appreciate outstanding examples of art, writing, music, and so on because it has been created by a human. Of course, entering this industry is not a walk in the park. You have to be very good to make it as a writer or musician. But it is an option! And you know what they say about following your dreams…

Cheffing and Restaurants Chef

It doesn’t matter how automated and robotic the future becomes. People will always want to go out for dinner, and they won’t want their food prepared by a non-human. Robotics and automation are about improving efficiency, but eating at a restaurant is not an efficient process — it’s a luxury. If you have a love of food, and also, more broadly, have a love of social gatherings, then working in the culinary industry might be the right choice for you. You can work as a chef or as a restaurant owner. It’s hard work but can be highly enjoyable!
