Share this post



Today we’re going to talk about professions that are gonna be in high demand in five and ten years. There are also some professions that have no future according to Forbes Monster and Glassdoor. These are resources that have been researched for this article/video.

A lot of professions are getting automated. We have Amazon in San Francisco. People can check out without talking to others. They just go and they’re automatically built for what they have in their pockets. A lot of automobile companies are testing driverless taxis and driverless cars and trucks. So low-level jobs are getting automated. Robot.

What it means for us as human beings? It means that in the future we’re going to lose a lot of those low-level jobs, but it means that we have a lot more space for creativity. So today markets that are gonna survive are also analyzed. Here are those markets/professions that are going to survive in the next ten years:


1. Medicine

Openings on those markets have been growing really fast. Twenty six percent per year over here and if we compare 2010 with projections for it in 2020, we’re going to get that there would be 700,000 more jobs. And this not only applies to doctors.

And of course doctors are going to be in high demand. It also applies to people who take care of people who sit at home, like home care, because we started to live longer. There is a guy here in San Francisco and he’s in his fifties and he’s like I’m going to live till a hundred and eighty years and he’s doing its biohacking. He’s working on nutritious food that is going help you get all the vitamins.

But this means that we’re going to live longer and we’re going to need a lot more health care. Sometime second thing that is thriving on this market is IT in medicine. And yes a lot of doctors, offices are getting automated and yes we can create some processes that are happening in our cells in a lab and watch how we can affect them.

And there are also some magical things that are happening right now. There’s this machine and Stanford calls it DaVinci machine. You can perform a surgery without even being there. So it is kind of cuts in the human being and does whatever needs to be done.

You can have a doctor in the United States and that machine in Africa somewhere. The doctor from US will perform a surgery and IT in medicine is also a huge market. It’s going to reach more than a hundred billion dollars in valuation in 2020 and is growing 50% year-over-year.


2. Creative Professions

A lot of jobs are getting automated. All of the creative professions are going to thrive because we have AI. But it’s not that developed yet. It cannot create awesome photographs. That cannot create awesome videos. That cannot edit videos. That cannot write text for you. Yes it can do some kind of stuff, but it is not yet on a human beings level. So my idea of photographers, vloggers, content creators, video editors, you’re gonna have a lot of future and also designers, architects, there’s a huge future for those professions as well and action professions.


3. Sales people

There is so much technology that is automating sales. But what research says is that we’re looking for more individual care and chatbots cannot provide that yet, because again AI is not that developed. So sales people have awesome skills and selling stuff your field is growing 16 percent year-over-year and.

Again if we compare 2010 to 2020 we’re going to have 700,000 more openings on those positions. Good thing for all of us is that a lot of professions you can definitely learn them online if you have passion and if you have time. For all of the potential sales people out there is a course on a platform called Skillshare.

And Skillshare is an online learning community with thousands of classes and design business technology, etc. And if you get Premium Membership you’re going to get unlimited access to high-quality classes from experts working their fields and you can improve your skills and learn from somebody who’s from that market, not like somebody who’d just read a book.


4. Food Industry

There are machines that are automating the processes in the industry. somebody created Cafe X and this is a cafe that is automated in San Francisco. Click a button you get you a cup of coffee. You’re done and also there was this startup that created a machine that did sandwiches, but they shut it down. Anyway there’s this trend that some of the basic jobs are automated in the food industry.

But there is also a trend that people are making more money. They spend less time cooking. They spend more time going out and actually caring about what they eat. So nutritionists, good cooks and people who can create amazing food and amazing restaurants, you’re going to be in high demand.


5. Developers

Like any developers, software engineer, app developer, UX UI designer, product designer  is connected with coding. And created products online it’s gonna be in high demand, because there are still industries that are merging. They are going from offline into online and yes we need to help them do that and yes we need a lot of professionals to do that.

Those are really well paid professionals. If you look at the American market on average software engineer will make like a hundred thousand dollars a year. For this profession though you would need a bachelor’s degree. The projected growth if we think of like 2016 and go to 2026 the projected growth is more than 36%. Also we’re looking at projected of 1 million employment by 2026. What an attractive nice software market.


6. Education

Concentrate on post-secondary education. It means that people are learning languages, people are learning different skills. This traditional education -we just go to classes and follow the curriculum that is already set by somebody else- is fading away. Think of Finland where they pray this new school concept where kids don’t just go to classes that teachers tell them to attend.

They select what they want to do. If they want to sing they can sing the whole day. If they want to construct something then the school provide resources for that. Finland is just like the top country for education in the world right now.

It is going to be a trend in the future when people would not just go to standard school or standard university to get their bachelor’s. Maybe they would even skip some stages and go straight into getting some skill like one year of design and photography or whatever and go straight into workplace and get real life experience.

Teachers will be in really high demand but I would also emphasize that education is going online. And online education market is growing at fifteen percent year-over-year. A lot of universities are publishing the forces online and a lot of teachers are creating their curriculum online. So teachers who can bring their courses from offline to online are going to thrive in the future.


Professions That Are Going to Vanish

There are also some professions that have unfortunately -according to Forbes Monster and Glasser- no future in the next ten years. A lot of professions that are connected with agriculture, because a lot of them are going to be automated. For example farmers, ranchers and other agricultural managers.

Also anything that is connected with post delivery, like Postal Service’s mail men etc. They are also mentioning some professions that are connected with data entry, because again there are a lot of programs that can do that. Also data analysis since this can be done by a machine already.

On the other hand there are some professions that you cannot really learn right now, but they’re going to be in a huge demand in future. For example drone operator. There are already so many drones, but no comprehensive course for them, but in the future we’re going to have them everywhere. We should not only navigate them, we should also build systems for them to coexist with us.

Another professions are a designer of VR. You can design something like a spaceship and people going to go into space can train before they actually fly. Trash engineers are going to be in huge demand also, because we have so much trash and we produce so much trash. We need to utilize it without damaging the earth.

The next profession is educational advisor, because again we’re going away from this mass-market education. We’re going into a more customizable curriculum and if there is a person who you can talk to and who’s going to tell you so this kind of professions will be really in high demand in terms of education.

  1. I think there are also psychologists and therapists who will be in demand because more and more depressed people don’t know what to do with their lives, or because AI hasn’t been able to replace it. As more populations are paired with increasing unemployment, there is no need for doctors to know that we are in trouble
