From the UK

It is no surprise that one of the fastest growing areas of employment in recent years relates to computer technology. Another guaranteed growth area is the healthcare sector. The increasing number of healthcare jobs is directly attributable to the growing age of the population – people are living longer so there are more people in the older age groups – and the expansion of treatments available for medical conditions, whether delivered in the primary healthcare sector or within hospitals. Consequently, there is also an expansion in the number of administrative and support roles needing to be filled.

New services are developing that are opening out into recognized career fields. Many of these are provided directly to the consumer. Counselling and various complementary therapies are obvious examples, as well as physical training instructors and coaches.

From Australia

Assuming you’re looking to find a new career, there are two directions you might want to consider: computers and health care.

Why health care?

As baby boomers age, the health care system is facing greater demands, creating better career opportunities. Health care careers are varied, offering lots of options.

Joe Powell, managing director for Seek employment says that the five categories that are consistently Seek’s largest job boards — IT, sales and marketing, accounting, healthcare and administration — will continue to grow.

From the US

With an aging population, the demand for healthcare is expected to double over the next decade.

Tomorrow’s employers will put a premium on skilled and semi-skilled workers, especially in computers, health care, science and technology.
