According to a recent article on usnews.com many of the top jobs of 2018 include both the technology and medical field. I’ve listed the top 25 below for you to glance at. One commonality you will find among these jobs is the amount of schooling required is a definite must. You can’t just graduate high school and be a dentist or a surgeon.
The two main factors that help determine whether or not these careers make the list is salary and economic need.
While salary and need are important…. choosing a career based on the economic need and overall salary may not be the wisest determination. Yes these lists can be helpful to gauge overall salary expectations but be careful to choose to be a software developer because in 2018 a news source listed it as the number one job on the market.
When choosing a career its important to look at these lists but also think about your passions, skills, abilities, strengths and your weaknesses. Be self-aware knowing that whatever you choose you may spend a lifetime doing.
