U.S. News and World Report has released its list of the Best Careers for 2010. While unemployment hovers at around 10% and 16 million unemployed people face a paltry 2.5 million job openings each month the good news is that productivity is increasing. Productivity is measured by dividing output by hours worked. Does this mean that employers will not replace the jobs that were eliminated? Productivity allows more to be produced with less capital. Most economists agree that while productivity improvements can produce a short-term increase in unemployment, in the longer run increased productivity will raise the demand for workers and earnings because of the available capital.
Technology, the environment and baby boomers are keeping the job market on its toes. The wave of retiring baby boomers allows for opportunities in the financial planning industry. The field of education is in need of teachers as many boomers retire. As boomers age, there will be increased call for healthcare professionals to care for them. New forms of energy-from water supply to waste management-are seeing strong growth. And technology continues to produce important and popular additions to our daily lives, creating opportunities in the IT sector.
Below are the specific areas where the new economy has opened opportunities in the job market.
Business and Finance
Market research analyst
Public relations specialist
Physical therapist assistant
Science and Technology
Computer software engineer
Environmental science technician
Environmental engineering technician
Education and Civic
Medical and public health social worker

Can you transfer your skills to these industries? Can you be a technical write as opposed to a creative writer? Can you be a public relations specialist for an IT or financial planning industry instead of for a broader business market? Consider where your opportunities are.
