    As the world evolves, so does the demand for jobs. There may be departments and workloads the world now doesn't have. What would be the classified ads look like in the near future? In five years? Perhaps 10 more years?

    What does it concern you if there will be new jobs?

    Westhill Consulting and Employment thinks it is important to structure your career now so that when the time comes for your work to be in demand, you will on the top of the game. In recent reviews, here are the top careers predicted to have a big impact in the future:

    1. Healthcare



    According to recent Labor Department data, an aging population will put healthcare workers such as doctors, nurses, physical therapists, home health aides, and pharmacists in more demand.


    Developing nations will need more and more health workers as the world begins to turn its back to a healthier lifestyle.

    Less-skilled and lower paid workers such as aides may require as little as a certification course, depending upon the state they are living and working in, while doctors, nurses, physical therapists, and pharmacists require specialized schooling after graduating from college.

    2. Information Technology

    This may be one of the obvious fields to boom in the near future. Think of all the technology we didn't have just a few decades ago. Computers, internet, smartphones have changed business and communication. As technology slowly becomes more developed, IT professionals such as programmers and security specialist are in high demand.



    Those in this kind of field are enjoying analytical skills but should also be creative problem solvers. Asia is currently considered as home of IT specialists with promising practitioners from India, Jakarta, Indonesia and Singapore

    3. Alternative Energy

    People are currently realizing the problems we are facing in the environment. With warnings on natural hazards, calamities and disasters, people have become more conscious of energy utilization and will continue to do so. In response, alternative energy is being sought after as solution to the worsening uneven global climate.

    Don't say good-bye to oil and gas quite yet, but alternative energies such as wind power, hydrogen power, geothermal power, and solar power will create dozens of new careers, from mechanics and plant managers to scientists, engineers, and even sales and marketing professionals, as these energies become more mainstream

    4. Ethical Hacker

    Is it possible for a hacker to be ethical? It turns out that many companies hire these experts to purposefully hack systems in order to pinpoint problems in security measures before their less-ethical counterparts get the chance. You can even become a Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH), a professional who's tasked with network policy creation, intrusion detection and virus creation.
