Best jobs for the future/ Best Jobs in Demand
1. Social Media Professional
Future High Demand Jobs
When I started writing online in 2007, there was only Orkut available and LinkedIn was taking shape. I didn’t have presence on social media that time. In last 4 years I have strong presence on Facebook and LinkedIn. I recently started sharing my posts on Google Plus too.
I wanted to increase the presence of FinanceWalk on social networking sites, I contacted a few of my friends and came to know how busy they were. Almost all of us have presence on these social networking sites, but have you thought of making a career in it? I just typed ‘Social Media’ on SimplyHired’s site here and got 36,510 results for jobs available in social media in USA alone. This, of course, excludes the jobs that are not advertised as 60% of the jobs are never advertised and filled through references. So, social media marketing effectively is important for people who want to make a career in this area.
Those of you interested in making career in this field should be well trained in LinkedIn, YouTube and other social network marketing. I came across these exceptionally useful training resources available online. Have a look at VTAAcademy and LinkedInfluence. You can become expert in Search Engine Optimization (SEO) by joining this training program.

Think of this: According to one study, people who are under 40 today, will live over 100 years. The increasing number of jobs in healthcare can directly be attributable to the growing age of the population.
People are living longer, so obviously the doctors and support staff required for this population will be in demand.
Medical technicians,physician assistants,therapists,dental hygienists and support and administrative people will be in top future careers.
