Best Career 2015 - 2025

With the improving (slowly) job market, following are the 10 jobs you should aim to grab onto in 2011. Few are the usual suspects and some of them are jobs created with growing awareness and economic disaster this century has presented.

  • 1. ACCOUNTANTS
  • 2. FILM AND VIDEO EDITORS
  • 3. TECHINICAL WRITERS
  • 4. SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGISTS
  • 5. SPECIAL EDUCATION TEACHERS
  • 6. CIVIL ENGINEERS
  • 7. FIREFIGHTERS
  • 8. COMPUTER SYSTEMS ANALYST
  • 9. HYDROLOGIST
  • 10. FINANCIAL ADVISORS

1. ACCOUNTANTS:

Accountants work with numbers; they crunch them together to deduce financials for companies. To make this profession your livelihood, one needs to have a love affair with numbers. If you have that, you are all set for 2011. With more and more companies dragging themselves out of the recent economic crunch, they require thorough analysis of their economic and financial situation to move forward tactfully. This analysis is reached after assessment of financial statements, which the accountants make. This job also provides for flexibility to move upwards in the business, with people starting off as junior auditors and rising up to the ranks of managers and even partners in firms. In case of monetary benefits,

The best-paid 10 percent of accountants are looking to make more than $104,450, while the bottom, 10 percent less than $37,690”.

2. FILM AND VIDEO EDITORS:

Editors take a phenomenal idea and nick and tuck into a brilliant one. The world of cinema demands the most skilled who can revamp their product and turn it into a block buster. The global recession questions itself seriously only in the cinematic world, despite the movie goers on budget, the movie business seem to be earning well. So again this year, the demand for highly skilled editors only looks to find itself in an upward trend.

Salary wise the profession is worth the work, as a basic bachelor degree can get them started to “a median of $90,790 annually, with the top 10 percent earning six-figure salaries”

3. TECHNICAL WRITERS:

Technical writers make the tech world and its many many gadgets easier for all of us. They write up manuals and instructions on how to use gadgets so we can stop feeling so old and confused. With ever increasing series of smart phones and their sequels, which come out barely a year apart, technical writers can ease themselves with financial stability this year; they will surely be in demand. The biggest advantage? No fixed cubicles, technical writers can work from anywhere as long as they have an internet connection.

“Median pay for technical writers was $82,700 in 2011. The lowest-paid technical writers earn less than $37,000, and the highest-paid positions earn more than $100,000”,

not a bad deal if you ask us (or your neighbor, who has big sign of “foreclosed” on their front lawn.)

4. SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGIST:

In today’s world, when there are barely any jobs out there for mom and dad, imagine how the kids feel (i.e. the future workforce). With ever shrinking international boundaries and forums such as social networking leaving little to the imagination, children today are under pressure and overwhelmed, bullying being a major concern. For all the hardships, there is only profession standing to gain from it, yes you guessed it, PSYCHOLOGISTS!

“Annual earnings range widely, from less than $70,000 to more than $129,000”.

All of that to listen kids talk and tell them everything will be “alright”, where do I sign up?

5. SPECIAL EDUCATION TEACHERS:

This type of the profession is what we call ‘acceptance’, which is there as a result of the modern world. Accepting the needs of special children and helping them look beyond their disability; it is a challenging job, more so emotionally then physically, and more and more institutions are realizing that, and embracing that. 2011 looks like another bright year. These teachers not only work with the children but they work with their entire family.

Special-ed teachers at the middle-school level brought home about $62,000, while secondary school special-ed teachers made slightly more, about $53,000”.

A good salary and a satisfied conscious. A Job well done!

6. CIVIL ENGINEERS:

This is the oldest and most satisfactory profession in the book. “The top 10 percent of engineers earn more than $118,000”. It pays for all the hard work that goes into getting a civil engineering degree and licensing to practice.

The end of the recession is going to bring these professionals in demand in 2015, between working on buildings, roads, bridges, water-treatment plants, pipelines, hazardous-waste facilities, reservoirs, tunnels, airports, power plants and traffic concerns on residential streets, wetlands management, they certainly will have their plates full.

7. FIREFIGHTERS:

No matter how good looking these professionals are, you do not want them near your house. But unfortunately, there is a quite business that can be built on tragedy and just plain bad luck. Just as the name suggests, they fight fire. With educational degree required as low as a high school diploma, strong and fearless individuals who have no desire to study, ironically, are looking towards a very stable financial 2015.

Firefighters earn between $32,000 and $59,650, with senior management jobs in a typical department pay between $80,000 and $125,000.

8. COMPUTER SYSTEMS ANALYST:

This job creates computer systems that give companies the tools to run their businesses. Clearly this digital era necessitates employees with such skills, as the technology is ever changing; companies need these analysts to incorporate system changes. This job is surely stressful and complicated but the pros are outweighing the cons greatly.

“Median annual earnings are about $77,000 with the highest-paid 10 percent earning upwards of $159,000.” With only bachelors as entry requirements, these jobs are a gold mine in the making, as they provide with the maximum gain.

9. HYDROLOGIST:

Hydrologists study bodies of water, rain (sleet or snow), and all the stages of the water cycle. Sounds boring? Do not worry; they have many very cool technologies they get to work with. Educational degree requires bachelors and can go up as high as a P.H.D.

Entry-level hydrologists can make closer to $86,000, while the highest-paid can earn more than $170,000.” With a comfortable salary and a great prospect in their jobs, this is a good direction to head this year.

10. FINANCIAL ADVISERS:

This is a hard core profession which has numerous career pathways. Everything from working for large financial servicing firms to boutique advisory practices. These advisers can also have a private practice. This is one of the fastest growing professions today and is in a rapid demand. The educational degree requires bachelors as well as an advanced degree.

With the “highest-paid 10 percent earning more than $166,400”, this is a solid fixture which is sure to be proven fruitful. Your hard work will not go waste on this gamble!
