Careers for the Next Decade

Many people are reconsidering their life’s work during this recession.  Kiplinger has a great article on the careers predicted to do well over the next decade.  The author, Marty Nemko, selected the 13 that rank best overall based on these criteria:

Likelihood of Sustaining at Least a Middle-Class Income. This subsumes three factors: likely job growth, income potential and being under the radar (so there’s less competition for jobs).

Socially Redeeming. There may be jobs, for example, as casino managers and tobacco executives, but such occupations were immediately excluded from consideration.

Quality of Life. Reasonable work hours, freedom from toxic or noisy work environments, and so on.

Status. Most Kiplinger readers will not, for example, be attracted to owning gas stations, even though some gas-station owners make a great deal of money.
