Here at Employment Guide Headquarters we ran across an article from US News on the 30 Fastest Growing Careers for Older Workers. We are all well aware that retirement funds and government programs are not enough for many in America that would be retiring and enjoying life on a sunny Florida beach.
Even for those in their late 30's or 40's, a career change may be something to spark your career and lifestyle.
No matter where you are in your life, the career you choose is very important, not only for you but for your family and your future. You can read the entire list of growing careers here or look at some highlights below:
- 6 of the top 7 fastest growing fields are in health care with everything from nurses to home care aides and medical assistants.
- Teaches and child care is another industry with many opportunities in many sectors from day care to primary school teachers
- Office clerks, managers and technical/computer fields are also on an upswing
The source of the data came from a Northeastern University analysis of Bureau of Labor Statistics and Census Bureau data.
As a continued resource to the local community, please check out WiserWorker.com for jobs to the 40+ crowd and for those interested in a health care career, listen to the first HealthCareerWeb Podcast that was posted yesterday.
Happy hunting Orlando!
