Are You Ready to work in a Job that's In Demand?

TIME Magazine just released a feature on "Nine Jobs of the (Near) Future," which provides ideas that you might pursue as you look forward to your future.

In the workforce, supply and demand dictate that high-paying jobs aren't necessarily jobs that require a lot of college.  For example, underwater welding specialists (pictured) make up to $150,000 a year.  That's a lot more than teachers, as well as many lawyers and doctors.

For example, one job that would really interest me is a statistician.  In school, I was always good at math, but I never really knew that I could make a career in it.  Most of the math majors I knew in college became teachers.  Statisticians make $200,000+, and they use numbers to predict and interpret huge amounts of data.  If I knew then what I know now, I would be a statistician, I'm just saying.

BONUS:  Look through the selections that TIME provided.  Are their any jobs that you might be interested in getting into after high school?  Why or why not?


  1. Out of the available selection, I'd have to go with Cyber Security Specialist. My grandfather worked on tanks' technology, my uncle is a computer programmer, and my father is a hospital tech repairman. I've learned enough from them, and from practicing graphic design and being an administrator to the family laptop, to be able to learn how to fend off hackers.

  2. I'm glad you didn't become a statistician. We would have missed an excellent English teacher. Can't believe HS Principal didn't make the list.
