Jobs of the Future

From https://www.cnbc.com/2021/09/17/the-10-fastest-growing-jobs-of-the-next-decadeand-how-much-they-pay.html, found on High Growth Jobs of the Future.

Young Christians interested in a professional job should keep an eye on these jobs. Note the strong emphasis on health care

  • Nurse practitioners,
  • Physical therapist assistants,
  • Home health and personal care aids,
  • Health services managers,
  • Physician assistants.

Lots of old people in the future, over the next 20-30 years. Some with money, some will not.

It will be tempting to work for the government”s health system. It’s not a choice I would prefer — their incompetence in the COVID freak-out is amazing — but that’s up to you.

Just be aware: there will be a time, after a lot of cost-cutting restrictions are places on your shoulders, when the government money will start to shrink.

“Lots of old retired people… not many young workers, a.k.a. taxpayers.”

Be prepared.

The nurses and the assistants are probably safe enough, post-Great Default. The health service managers, on the other hand, are going to have a Bad Time until they start up their own businesses.

Privately, I prefer the IT side of the equation,

  • Information security analysis

and have a soft spot for hands-on repair techs & trades (HVAC, plumbing, electrician, etc… but not carpentry).

  • Statisticians
  • Data scientists

Be careful here: an AI revolution is starting up, and these men are in the cross-hairs. Maybe some of these jobs will be spared, but it’s a real risk.

You might want to be the guy who repairs the robots, though.

For the same reason why I think we will have plenty of nurses centuries after 90% of physician positions are eliminated by AI and future medical technology.

  • Solar photovoltaic installer
  • Wind turbine service technician

These are OK jobs, but what you really want to be is a small business owner, running your own solar panel/wind turbine maintenance business.
