JOBS OF THE FUTURE

From time to time, Dr. Robert Brueck, Board Certified plastic surgeon practicing in Fort Myers, FL , comments on matters of health, appearance, plastic surgery and whatever else occurs to him in a moment of reflection

I know this has nothing to do with plastic surgery, but I am always trying to provide my patients with helpful and timely information that may benefit them and/or their families.

When I was a young man growing up, the choices for jobs were very limited, you were either an engineer, lawyer, doctor or banker. If you were a woman you became a nurse, a secretary, a teacher or a bank teller. But the landscape has dramatically changed over the last 20 to 30 years.

The job opportunities for young people today are enormous and at times overwhelming. So how do we counsel our young teens and adults as to what direction to go? What does the future hold for jobs?

I was reading an article in the Wall Street Journal today that was entitled, "What Will Be The Hot Jobs Of 2018?". It mentions a tremendous book on future job data and prospects put out by our labor department (our tax dollars working for us).

The latest biannual compilation was published last month and is entitled “Occupational Outlook Handbook.”

In this compilation they forecast demand and pay for over 300 jobs in 45 categories. So this may provide a clue for those searching and looking for an answer to where will I be in 5, 10, 20 years.

Good luck. I am hopeful this will provide you with valuable insight and information to what lies ahead.
