The unemployment rates across the country are decreasing, which is such a good thing for the economy. But for the people with the right skills, experience, and education, there are jobs that will always have a pretty high demand for workers. So if you’re thinking about switching careers, or want to get into something that might work more flexibly around your family, then could one of these work for you? Being in a career that there is always a need for can also be a good way to go when thinking about longevity of a career in this uncertain financial climate.
The number of ads for registered nurses is rising and rising. We have an aging population so it does make sense that this is the case. As what comes with an aging population is illness and sickness. So the demand is higher than ever. But from hospitals to private nursing, there are a variety of options. And being a job that is needed at all times of the day, it can work well alongside a family. Of course, you can’t go into this kind of job with no experience or qualifications. But if you wanted to pursue nursing, then you’re likely to find afterwards pretty easily.
IT & Computer Systems Analysts
With so much that we do online and on our computers, this is easy to see why it is a sector that is always looking for new talent.

If you are looking for construction and labour jobs, then you’re lucky that they are one of the most in-demand sectors. This could be for a few reasons; businesses are expanding and are needing to have larger offices and premises built. Plus, with the fact that more and more people are staying put and improving their homes, rather than moving home, it means that construction workers are needed to renovate homes and build extensions. It is a skilled profession that can take some time to master, but once you have, there is likely to be a steady stream of work.
As with computer systems, anything online and web-based is going to be a career field that will rise and rise with demand. More individuals are wanting websites created, as well as businesses. So if you’re good at what you do and can design websites well, then this could certainly be for you. Websites need updates regularly too, so it is a field that will keep growing and growing.
