There are a number of trends that are currently having an impact on the job market. It is important to consider these current trends and how they are going to change the job market, especially if you are looking for a job or a career right now.
First and foremost, you should look beyond the country that you live in because there are going to be emerging markets all over the world, including Asia and Eastern Europe for example. Another good example is India, because India is trying to build a huge IT sector and they need as many as 8,000 more businesses in order to make it happen. The next decade is going to be all about international business.
Next, you are going to want to consider opportunities in wireless mobile. The wireless and mobile market is going to explode in the next decade, and will provide many fresh graduates with brand new and exciting opportunities in the process. Wireless access to information, wireless-specific functionality and rich graphics, real-time games, and video are all going to be big topics in the coming years.
Another concept to consider is growth within patents and intellectual property markets. As more companies are coming out with proprietary systems, software, hardware and ideas, patents and intellectual property law are going to be increasingly important, and so there are going to be a lot of new jobs in this sector in the coming decades. The number of patents being issued every year is growing significantly, a sign that this industry is only going to continue growing for some time.
The trends that impact jobs are going to change from year to year depending on what’s hot and who is sought after, but some things remain the same. For example, the tech and IT industries are only expected to grow, as they are virtually recession proof industries in the United States and around the globe as well.
