The jobs of the future are made up of vocations you may already be familiar with and those you may not have even known existed. The evolution of science and technology will continue to change the shape of and need for products and services consumers use every day.
Future in-demand careers will not necessarily make you big bucks, but those in these vocations will have an edge over those who have basic job skills in vocations with average growth.
When Liz Bronfman decided to major in architectural engineering, she thought she had to go far from home to do it. After high school, she headed halfway across the country to Boston University since no schools in her home state of Missouri offered the program.
After a year and a half at BU, Liz was homesick for the Midwest and nervous about the large amount of student loans she was accumulating to pay for private, out-of-state school. She wished she could go to school closer to her family, but didn’t want to change her major.
That’s when Liz discovered the Midwest Student Exchange Program, a tuition reciprocity program that allows students from Missouri to attend school in Kansas, but pay the same tuition as an in-state student. She looked at schools offering architectural engineering and found Kansas State. She was sold. That spring she transferred and, four years later, graduated from one of the best architectural engineering programs in the country.
Those who study science, technology, engineering and mathematics are in high demand.
As I think about where I will land next year at this time, money would be the factor that could limit my future.
