Hot occupations over the next 30 years? - November 29, 2011, 05:40 PM

I'm considering going to school full-time to use my GI Bill. I'm not really sure what I'd study though and I'm not going to get some useless degree.

And of course there are some fields like medical/healthcare that I'm not interested in. The less dealing with people the better.

A job not reliant on government contracts and funds is preferable given the way things are going.

Engineering and scientific type stuff interests me, but I'm not a fan of advanced math. I'd rather not be in an office. I like hands-on work.

Geology. Lots of companies will be looking for hands on people to go to some pretty far off and remote (see: shitholes) places to look for petroleum consumables. I've thought about pulling a dual major with that and culinary arts. If I'm going to be stuck in a shithole, I might as well eat well.

on the internet you can be anyone you want, it's strange that so many people choose to be so stupid

Agreed. I've heard that there is a big drilling operation getting underway in North Dakota, and that it's been kept pretty low-key so far. Could be a lot of long-term jobs up that way.

Also, computers are never going way. Sysadmins and some of the other certified positions are a dime a dozen, but find a niche and specialize and you've got a pretty good meal ticket.

I had considered that. People don't stop dying just because the economy takes a dump. Matter of fact, business may actually pick up. And it fits...."hands on", "don't want to deal with people"

Meh, double major. That way you can autopsy anyone that dies in a volcanic eruption.

Computer Science, Engineering Technology, Information Technology, Information Security, Networking etc, we will need soldiers to fight the cyber war against China.

Computers are like crack to business and society alike, you will always have a job.

Edit: as far as no gov dependency, the above mentioned is still good because private companies also need this, prolly don't pay as crazy as Gov contracts etc. But during these times, it's almost safer to be in private sector.

Travis,

When you are 50, working outside may not be as appealing.

I dunno.

Seems like we can never get enough contracting, pricing, budgeting and finance people.

Finance people always have money and are in demand.

Good ones are literally worth their weight in gold.
