Top Growing Career Fields In 2022
You have the best chance of getting hired if you are pursuing any one of these top careers in 2022. These are the jobs with the highest demand for hiring and the greatest increase in growth. The world is back to work and so are you! So, you need to make your steps (or should I say interviews) count. Let’s look at the highest-paying careers that are growing the fastest and careers that will be hiring the most in 2022.
A back-office job is where the tasks comprise manufacturing or developing the product. The ‘back office/front office’ construct can exist in a variety of industries. In finance and banking, it refers to the difference between roles in revenue-generating positions (trading & sales, investment banking, asset management etc) and roles in those areas that support and enable those activities (operations, technology, finance, compliance etc).
Of course IT has been a growth field for years. What’s different is that an increased focus on remote work and smartphone development has increased demand for software and app developers. Although this field has traditionally required a bachelors of science degree, companies are now recruiting people who learned to code online. So if you’re thinking about a career change and are tech orientated, you may want to consider taking some coding classes. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) The Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH) predicts that by the end of the decade, the software development field will grow by 22% –– which means over 300,000 new jobs with a median salary over six figures. And if you tend to be introverted, software or app development is a great career choice.
Supply Chain Management
You probably aren’t surprised to find that this is a growth field. The panic buying that began before last year’s lockdowns upended the just-in-time delivery methods that so many retailers had long relied on. Jobs in this field include Purchasing Agent, Logistics Analyst, and Distribution Manager. Although many start out with a bachelor’s degree, top earners have graduate degrees as well. Industrial engineers are also plentiful in this supply chain management. If you are skilled with math, statistics, and engineering principles and love making systems work more efficiently, this could be the right field for you.
BPO is one of the easiest jobs to get and you get a good salary but the backdrop is experience is never counted if you are applying somewhere else. Companies having thousands of customers always require a strong customer support team to handle their customer queries, complaints, feedback providing service to their customers or solve their queries either by making a call or attending one.
The COVID-19 pandemic had an outsized impact on health care workers. Some caught the virus, many became ill or even lost their lives. After enduring a months-long onslaught of patients, studies suggest over one-third are thinking about leaving the profession. Although there has been a shortage of skilled nurses for years, the pandemic made it even worse. That’s one reason healthcare is a top field of the future.
Careers in this field are expected to grow by 15% over the next decade. Financial managers are hired to examine a company’s spending and income while looking for ways to maximize profitability. Fortune 500 companies often seek candidates with an MBA –– although smaller organizations hire financial managers with bachelor’s degrees too.Management consultants enjoy similar high rates of growth and high median incomes.
Actuarial and Statistician
Actuaries enjoy an almost 20% growth rate by the end of the decade and a median income over six figures. If you enjoy data and statistics, this could be the perfect high-growth field. Most work for insurance companies, deciding whether or not to insure a potential customer. Being able to evaluate risk is an in-demand skill. Actuaries often have a degree in actuarial science and have passed a series of licensing exams. Statisticians fulfill a similar role for companies by analyzing data and projecting future sales, profits, and obstacles to growth. Data Scientists, who help companies better utilize information, enjoy a projected 30% growth in employment by 2030.
