The Fastest Growing Jobs In America

Wondering how to plot out your career path during an economic crisis, or just tired of your current job? Before you plan your next steps, consider this data about the jobs most likely to grow over the next decade. These recession-resistant professions could offer you stable employment as well as rewarding work.

Balancing what you know about your own skills and interests against what occupations are likely to be in demand will help you make an informed career choice.

In many cases, the jobs considered to be the fastest growing require specialist training. Fortunately, it is now easier than ever to train for a new career while working at another. The expansion of the Internet has made distance learning easier and more rewarding than ever. Many accredited institutions now provide top-notch training to online learners.

Service Sector Jobs Continue To Expand

It’s obvious from the news (and from the labels on your clothing) that the United States is continuing to shift away from manufacturing consumer goods. This trend is set to continue through 2016, as service-sector jobs multiply. While the financial services sector and real estate sectors have taken a hit with the latest downturn, plenty of stable, remunerative service jobs are waiting for people with the right skills and training. The four fastest-growing areas in the service sector include:

Health Care

The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that the health care sector alone will add nearly 4.5 million jobs to the economy by 2016. The greying of the baby boom generation will drive a need for medical personnel, both at the highest level-doctors, surgeons, and related highly-skilled practitioners-as well as administrators, care givers, and technicians. Jobs that support the work of doctors and nurses are relatively easy to train for. In some cases, a two-year associate degree can help open the door to one of these medical careers:

” Personal and home care aides

” Medical assistants

” Nursing home aides

” Veterinary technicians and assistants

” Physical therapy assistants

” Pharmacy technicians

” Surgical technologists

In addition to medical health care, mental health and social-service related careers are also set to experience increasing demand over the next several years. In many cases, workers can train for a career as a mental health professional or social service worker as a part-time or online student.

Education

Expect about 1.4 million jobs in education to arrive in the next five to ten years. Just as a medical career doesn’t mean you need to be a doctor, an education career doesn’t require you to become a K-12 teacher. Other jobs that make up the education sector include:

” Teacher’s aides

” Pre-school workers

” Special needs teachers

” Administrative support personnel

” Library personnel

It can be relatively easy to move into education while you are mid-career in an unrelated field. In some cases, workers who already have a bachelor’s degree in one subject can qualify as teachers by taking their state’s teacher qualification exam. Other states will require more course work. Several online degree and credentialing programs exist that can help you make the move into an education-oriented career.

Information Technology

In spite of gloomy news about outsourcing, there are many jobs in the tech sector that must stay in the United States. These jobs, which frequently require a bachelor’s degree, will multiply in the near future. Job titles include:

” Network systems analyst

” Data communication analysts

” Computer application engineers

” Computer systems software engineers

” Network administrators

” Systems administrators

In addition to these back-office technology positions, there is an increasing demand for digital media professionals, such as animators and graphic designers. All of these professions can be trained for online.

Fashion and Beauty

Personal care is one of the mainstays of the service economy, and this sector will experience steady growth through 2016. While some positions, such as manicurists and pedicurists, are not especially remunerative, professional make-up artists who work with performers, skin care specialists, and fashion designers can command a good salary. Marketing professionals whose training focuses on fashion and retail can also benefit from the growth in this industry. Students looking to break into these jobs will benefit most from a blended learning approach that combines distance learning with on-campus experience.

All Allied Health Schools Helps Medical Coding Students Prepare for New Health Care World

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) July 21, 2009

The Obama administration has made it clear that health care reform, including improvements to health information technology, is a top priority for 2009. This means that students seeking medical coding and transcription training are in the right place at the right time. All Allied Health Schools offers help to these students, connecting them with medical coding and transcription schools, so they can get the training they'll need to take advantage of growing career opportunities.

The Department of Health and Human Services reports that improving health information technology will increase health care quality, reduce costs, prevent errors and increase administrative efficiencies. So it's no surprise that the Obama health care plan identifies health information technology as a key opportunity in health care reform.

As a result of this increased focus on health information technology, jobs in medical coding and medical transcription–already a growing segment of the job market–are set to continue growing faster than the average for all occupations for the next few years. This means it's a great time to consider medical coding or medical transcription training. With superior career resources and a wide array of medical coding and transcription school connections, All Allied Health Schools is committed to helping students take the next step on their path to career success.
