5 Top Jobs in 2018


Gordon Yeta, World Executives Digest | The next year is going to be great for businesses of all kinds. There’s a lot of confidence in the markets lately and entrepreneurs will probably invest more aggressively than usual. The most important decision is to choose what business is best suited to your interests and most needed in your community.

It’s important to note that in this day and age it’s normal and even expected to change jobs a few times during your lifetime. The changes in technology and consumer expectation are changing the job market, so here are the areas in which most young people will find employment in the year to come.


The economy is truly global at this point. We have heard this being said for decades now, but it wasn’t entirely true, since most of the important businesses were located in a few western countries. Now, especially in the tech world, businesses come from all over the world.

This is what makes good translators who understand technology, business, as well as languages more valuable than ever. Having these skills also means you can use the internet to teach languages and make some extra money on the side.

Data analysis

Businesses are relying on the data they gather from the customers to make their marketing and customer service better, more detail-oriented and more efficient. Although they have been doing this for a while now, today, with mobile devices becoming so ubiquitous and the cloud being easier to use, big data has become entirely essential.

Mathematicians and statisticians will make marketing campaigns more than just creative departments in the year to come. Pursuing this education also allows you to take on a variety of roles within a company if you plan to expand on your duties.

Personal care

The baby boomer generation is about to retire, and retirement represents one of the hardest changes in a person’s life. The elderly want to make their retirement simpler and more laid back, but still have an active and engaging life with their friends and family. This usually means that they plan on spending their retirement living on their own, even if they might need medical or personal care.

Jobs in this industry are going to explode in the years to come, and they won’t only be filled by medical professionals.


Construction businesses are booming, and they are going to continue to grow and change in the years to come as well. One of the first things to change is going to be the size of construction companies. Smaller companies will become more prominent. They will serve fewer clients and rent the bigger equipment instead of buying it. Using crane hire services, a small construction business can start finding clients from day one and focus on the quality of their work.

Construction is also going to become much more environmentally friendly, because young clients tend to choose businesses that share their values.

Green consultants

Both businesses and homes are trying to change their ways and waste less energy wherever it’s possible to do so. This saves money and attracts clients who are interested in these issues. Consultants help businesses find the solutions to the problems their business is causing to the environment.

This isn’t a job only for ecologists, but also for those who know a lot about running a company and dealing with taxes. Since these fields are strictly regulated, you need an expert to help you deal with all the issues.

These jobs will dominate the market in 2018 and the years to come. A good thing about them is that they can also grow and expand as your career does.
