Where the Jobs Are/Will Be, Part 2

Last week, in Part 1 we discussed new jobs in Health Information Technology, Geriatric Healthcare, Health Law, and Data Mining and Occupational Health and Safety. This week we explore other fast-growing industries and occupations.

Embedded engineers will bridge the gap between software and hardware design and work specifically on microchip processors. Most companies will hire candidates with a bachelor's degree and experience with computer systems and train them. Common majors preparing students for these jobs are computer science, software engineering, control systems, and other technical disciplines.

As the worldwide Web expands, people will be needed to write the features providing the content. To write for the Web and stay relevant and employable, candidates should also have a general understanding of HTML, Search Engine Optimization (SEO), and social media. The mobile Web is also growing rapidly. To meet its huge demand for content design and development for mobile platforms, Web providers are hiring graphic designers, videographers, casual game/application developers, and software engineers.

There are now more than 350 million Spanish speakers worldwide, including 31 million here in the US, where Hispanics are now the largest minority group. To accommodate these populations, we will need Spanish-English language translators and interpreters.

In numerous other Herman Trend Alerts, we have discussed the growing need for employees who can support sustainable business practices. Every job in every sector will be affected, as employers look for ways to be more environmentally responsible and save money at the same time. Moreover, we will need accountants to help businesses measure the financial impact of environmental problems and their solutions. In the sustainable energy and automotive industries, the need for "green engineers" will also increase.

As the adult education market continues to expand, colleges, universities, and technical schools will need to hire college professors and instructors for these adult learners. Schools will hire secondary school teachers to accommodate the adults going back to school for their high school diplomas.

College graduates who have studied Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL) will find waiting teaching positions in Europe, Asia, Africa and Central and South America as well as intensive teaching programs in the US. The requirement: Teaching English as a Foreign Language or TESL certification.

With the oil spill generating growing concerns about marine biodiversity and conservation, marine toxicologists*, conservation scientists, marine ecologists, fisheries scientists, and policy makers for the oceans will be hired in record numbers. Graduates with varying degrees should watch this industry, particularly if they have interest in environmental science or public policy issues.

*Toxicologists study harmful substances in natural systems and their effects on the biosphere.

AMAZING FOOD SUPPLEMENT NOW AVAILABLE
Joyce could hardly believe her eyes when she saw her husband's lab results. Her husband, who had recovered from colon cancer had been in chemo for six months, but after that he wasn't getting better. On top of that, his CEA (Carcino Embryonic Antigen) Marker has jumped to 8.5, a cause for concern and more tests. Joyce asked the doctor for 30 days to see what she could do without more tests and treatment. One month to the day later, his CEA was at 4.8; one month after that, it was 4.3 and now six months later, it is 3.8 (copies of all lab results available upon request). And the only thing he did differently was to take a miraculous new food supplement. Somehow, it normalizes body function by bringing energy to the cells. It has been found to lower cholesterol and blood pressure, and even reduce blood sugar to normal levels. For more information, call Joyce at 336.210.3548 or email her at joyce@hermangroup.com.
