7 High Impact Careers

All ethical work is impactful and that’s why people want their job to be impactful.

As part of continuing development, millions will now have the opportunity to advance to more engaging and intellectually stimulating jobs (with some investment in upskilling), which is the ray of hope in the grey skies of job losses. While the job setting is predicted to undergo major changes, here are what appear to be the most demanded jobs that will open up in the next three-five years. Every job sector undergoes variations over a period of five or ten years, so you have to constantly adapt to the needs of the industry to stay relevant. But if you’re thinking higher, perhaps this list will be useful. These seven careers are likely to yield major impact:

Computer programmers, Software developers and Information security analysts: Jobs that fall under the computer and mathematical professions will grow in the next five years. So IT-related training is still going to be in-demand. Cyber security professionals and analysts can anticipate many opportunities as organizations gear up to increase cyber security measures to protect information and data. 

Teacher or tutor of high-potential children: Helping intellectually gifted kids live up to their potential can yield great ripple effects. Fully flowered, these kids as adults are the most likely ones to cure our diseases, create more useful products, and become wise leaders.

Competent and wise leaders help their employees and the quality of the organization’s products or services, which indirectly profits the customers and other stakeholders. Disturbances across Industries will also need a new type of senior leaders to help companies sail across the rough waters of change. As the seasoned boomers get ready to leave the workforce, many of them will have fabulous opportunities to consult and mentor new leaders.

Executive coach: People who help managers and leaders become more proficient also have a great ripple effect. Some of the most rewarding work is in helping leaders improve their planned, communication, and time-management skills.

Data analysts and statisticians will become important across industries by 2020. As complexity increases and also the dependence on data, they will be required to help make sense of all of the data generated by technological disruptions. Analytics is going to be at the core of managerial decision-making. Data analysts or statisticians will continue to be in the reckoning.

Human resources and organizational development specialists: They are needed to help reskill workers, plan new training schedules and drive change. With technological and socio-economic changes some jobs will fade completely, while new jobs will get created and more people will be needed. Companies are  finding the talent needed for new jobs by training existing employees with new skill sets. So, organizational development specialists and human resource professionals will be required not only for hiring but also to help employees develop new skill sets.

Architecture and engineering: During the next five years, the demand for those skilled in architecture and engineering will continue to increase. The prediction by 2020 is that 2 million jobs will be created worldwide in the computer, mathematics, architecture and engineering related fields, according to the World Economic Forum report.

The rule for millennial is: “You can have a career for life.' You have to constantly get used to to the needs of the industry to stay significant.” Jobs will be the same, but the skill sets required will be diverse. Earlier, you used to get a degree, appeared for an interview, and secured a job and keep it for life. Both educational bodies and recruiters are pushing the envelope each day, looking for applicants with multi-dimensional skills, flexibility and envision future. Every job sector undergoes modifications over a period of five or ten years, so you have to constantly adjust to the needs of the industry to stay relevant.
