If this happens to
be the year you finish your formal education and are now looking at career
opportunities, this is indeed an exciting time. If you are going to spend
around 40 years working on something, it should be of high interest, indeed, having
a passion for something is the best reason in the world to make a career out of
your search for knowledge.
Here are our top 5 sectors that hold very
promising careers in more ways than one.
& Robotics – The
majority of UK factories and warehouses are either semi or fully automated, and
a career in robotics offers a challenging and very rewarding experience. You
could either be involved in design and manufacture or the installation and
maintenance, both are excellent fields, and by getting into an industry in its
infancy, you will develop along with the sector.
- Hi-Tech Logistics – A growing industry, large and very
complex digital equipment needs to be transported, set up and configured ready
for operation, a service offered by Tecdis, a leading UK white glove provider that is always looking for new
graduates to join their organisation. This is a challenging career, and you
would need to acquire a range of skills, with visits to manufacturers to learn
more about the products you are working with.
- Blockchain Developer – Blockchain is relatively new, and this system of storing data is
impregnable by hackers, with digital currencies like Bitcoin using a blockchain
platform. This industry has a very rosy future, as the entire world switches
its critical data to a blockchain that needs to be created and managed.
Regarding salaries, take a look in the jobs sections and you’ll be pleasantly
surprised to see blockchain developers are right at the top of the scale.
- Health & Well-Being – More and more people are becoming health-conscious
and moving into natural health would be an exciting career, and if your
passionate about fitness and nutritious food, you could start as an assistant
to a natural health practitioner. A fitness instructor will always be in
demand, plus you will always be in great shape!
- Digital Marketing – The SEO sector is the
fastest growing tech group, and a good SEO expert can command a high salary. If
you like using computers and have a good understanding of the Internet and
digital technology in general, then you would be ideally suited to learn about
digital marketing. It is a complex industry that follows search engines like
Google, trying to make their clients’ websites more prominent, and then there’s
social media marketing (SMM), which is interesting to learn about.
It makes complete sense to think long and hard about a career you wish
to pursue, and remember two things: always follow your passion, and apply
yourself fully to all tasks that are given to you. If you have the right
attitude and a desire to work hard, you will go a long way and enjoy a very
regarding and comfortable life.
