Does it feel like we’ve been facing an economic crisis? You can listen to the news day in and day out about market trends and the GDP, and you still might not get at the heart of the issue.
The economy is changing, and a lot of people haven’t caught up with that fact. Collectively, it’s just now beginning to hit us as to what has happened in the first place. Whole industries have gone underwater while countless new career options have taken their places.
As a person who is trying to navigate this economic world and carve out a living for yourself, here’s what you need to know:
We’re shifting towards information and customer service
Two industries that are undoubtedly on the rise, and are expected to be for a good long time, are the customer service sector and information technology sector. While automation is taking over many manufacturing positions, people still need the personal service of experts.
Those experts could have a high degree of understanding of computer systems or cyber security, or they could be experts in something like cosmetology. But the point is that people need fewer disposable workers, and need more and more experts.
Now is the time to be your own boss
There are more opportunities than ever before to “be your own boss” in the modern economy. Thanks to the internet, you can market your services as professional in almost anything all across the world. There’s bound to be a market for almost any service you can dream up, as long as you can market it!
Never forget this option, and always be looking for ways to carve out your own niche profession out of your hobbies and interests and create your dream job.
Internet skills are everything
If you don’t know anything else about the rising economy, know that you absolutely need to have computer and internet skills to succeed. Employers are looking for people who are tech-savvy and know how to deal online, because that’s the direction that everything is going in.
If you have great internet/social media/computer/cyber skills, you’ll surely be able to find a profession with some company or individual, if not yourself. So make sure you’re staying up to date with the latest technology, no matter how head-spinning the pace of change is!
