There are plenty of reasons people consider a career change. Sometimes, it comes after losing your job, whereas other times, you might feel you need a change, whether because you’re too stressed or have lost a passion. It is intimidating to make a career change, though. Betting on yourself can be risky, which is why it could be useful to know what types of careers will be in high demand in the future.

Environmental Careers

There is a significant focus on the environment in the modern world. Every day, you hear about carbon emissions, rising temperatures, and other ecological factors that could be irreversible further down the road.

This is why environmental careers, from conservation efforts to earning degrees in sustainable practices, could set you up for a successful future. You can check out to get an idea of the type of degrees you can obtain. From there, there’s the opportunity to think more about what you can do to truly make a difference to the environment and push for a better future for everyone.

Skilled Contractors

The most recent generations grew up being told they needed to go to university, get a degree, and the world would be their oyster. Those that followed through with this discovered it was not exactly the case, and it even resulted in arguably too many people going to university after all.

Many people go to college following their high school graduation because they don’t know what else to do. However, this throws them into debt that can feel impossible to escape. As an alternative, learning a trade, such as carpentry, plumbing, or becoming an electrician are roles that will always be in demand no matter what the future looks like.

Healthcare Workers

The average life expectancy has increased over the past few decades. There are more people over the age of 60 than there have ever been throughout history. While this means everyone gets the chance to live a long and fulfilling life, it also means there is a greater need for care.

A healthcare qualification is an admirable venture regardless of where or even when you live. With more people requiring care, though, healthcare is certain to be in high demand.

Artisanal Stores

Younger generations have taken to ditching the huge, lesser accountable brands in favor of cruelty-free authentic products that represent their values. This is why artisanal products and stores are such a profitable venture, and you could be part of this wave, too.

Whether you create vegan-friendly beauty products, design art prints for home decor, or baked goods you won’t find at the supermarket, there is no limit to what artisanal ventures you could explore. It will also allow you to express yourself and show off some creativity along the way. 

A Change is Gonna Come

Whether you need a change or have been forced into one, these careers can offer plenty of benefits. Not only will you be part of the next wave of professionals in industries of the future, but you’ll also get the chance to realize your potential and find something you’re passionate about. You might even be able to help people along the way.


  1. I've changed what I do for both reasons. Sometimes it was moving locations which made me look for a new job and others was because I needed a change such as when I had children. These are all four careers that I also believe will be vital in the coming years and great options to look into.

  2. I have worked in such a variety of environments over the years because I feel like things change constantly. It is always a good idea to diversify and be ready for change.

  3. It is so good to think ahead and try and predict what jobs are useful to study now.

  4. I feel like healthcare jobs will always be around for sure. Environmental jobs are definitely picking up with the way the world is and how we'll start diving into more renewable resources.

  5. These are all great career options for the younger generation to consider. I keep telling Allison to focus on the healthcare field since she's always been a carer. I think she'd be great as a therapist or nurse.

    1. I think my girl would be a good health care worker too. Or a beautician/nail tech. She's got natural mad talent.
