Now careers like physicians and lawyers are as close to guaranteed as they come. But of course, they cost a lot of time, and tuition. Not to mention just because one wants to become one doesn’t mean one is able to. I am looking for careers the average person can realistically get. You know, a career that will require 4-6 years of post-high school education: a bachelor’s or master’s degree.
Now what careers are the safest career wise going into the future? What careers will have plenty of need for new employees, and what careers have the lowest chance of being outsourced or automated?
I was looking at medical technology(4 year degree), but it seems like it has a very good chance of being automated with the developing technology. Pharmacy(6 year degree) isn’t bad, but that’s a very competitive field. Accounting(4-5 year degree) looks alright, but I was looking online in my area, and didn’t see too many job opportunities.
So for the average person, what is the safest realistic career choice? Making 100k+ isn’t needed. I will gladly take a 40k-60k/yr salary if I am all but guaranteed to have that job throughout my life.
As for my interests and following it in my future job(as some like to suggest), my interest is being able to support myself throughout life. I will consider basically any type of career.
So give me some ideas!
I was just giving a low estimate with the salary. My point was I do not need to make hundreds of thousands dollars per year. I would be happy with a 60k+ salary.
