We subscribe to The Kiplinger Letter to keep abreast of the pulse of the markets and insights on what lies ahead. His observations and predictions of what’s ahead are usually right on.
In one of his recent newsletters he was talking about job creation and where the big need will be moving forward as the economy starts to pick up. According to Kiplinger, 85% of future jobs will come from six sectors, Health Care, Hospitality, Construction, Manufacturing, Business Services and Retail.
Among college degrees – science, math, engineering, technology and health sciences have the best prospects.
Among skilled workers – plumbers, electricians and HVAC mechanics can count on good demands. What’s interesting is that Kiplinger says that 25% of these folks (licensed skilled workers) will earn a bigger income than the average college graduate.
