The process of changing careers is very daunting to many – especially when it involves entering a new industry. However, if you are organized, have the right experience and the determination, there’s no reason why it can’t happen.
If you’re currently in this position, but you’re unsure of which route to go down, then it’s a good idea to conduct research into what industries could be the most suitable fit for you. To help guide you with this, here is a list of 4 of the most profitable and extraordinary industries that are currently out there.
Cybersecurity has rapidly taken over. A technology that’s required within several sectors, from banking to healthcare, it will only continue to thrive as hacking and data breaches become more prominent. Because of this demand, more and more jobs within this sector are being created.
If you’re interested in cybersecurity, you could access either entry-level roles (IT technician, network engineer or systems engineer), mid-level roles (IT auditor, security analyst or cybersecurity consultant) or more advanced-level roles (cybersecurity architect or a cybersecurity manager). Of course, for the latter, you’ll have to work your way up. But if you have the motivation and rack up the experience, you will be able to achieve them.
If you’ve always been interested in how power is created, this could be the ideal industry to get into. Whether you opt to get into the hydraulic or pneumatic side of the industry you’re likely to have a very lucrative and extraordinary career.
For example, you could become a hydraulic technician, in control of how oil and water are transformed into energy. Alternatively, you could be a pneumatic technician, using pressurized gases to create it. Whichever route you go down, it’s important that you research into what knowledge you’ll need to acquire (e.g learning what an air check valve is and its function), necessary qualifications, experience, etc.
The popularity of drones is ever-increasing – from people using them to create online content to companies using them to ship items nationally. Innovative machines that are ever-evolving, the possibilities with them are endless. The industry itself is even expected to be worth $43 billion by 2024 – a statistic that’s hard to ignore.
Because of this, it’s a very exciting industry to enter for anyone with an interest in technology. Similarly to cybersecurity, it’s also got a high demand for employees – especially drone pilots. With salaries starting at $40 an hour, it could be a profitable career in the long run that gives you the opportunity to travel around the world.
Ok, so this might not come as a surprise. But this industry is easily one of the most incredible and lucrative industries to get into. Of course, it does take certain qualifications and experience – working with NASA doesn’t come easily. But if you’re willing to go back to school and take on the training, then you’re likely to have a long and extraordinary career within it.
Technology is constantly developing within the aeronautic industry, so no matter where you’re located in the world, you could experience a career unlike any other.
So, there you go! Those are 4 of the most profitable and extraordinary industries you can get into. The industry you decide to enter, of course, is up to you. But by taking the leap and putting in the work, you’ll be in a career that you’re not only passionate about now but in the long term.
