Exciting Industries to work in right now

Wednesday, June 26, 2019 at 1am

You’re not alone if you are still figuring out which career path you want to go down. So when it comes to making decisions like this, it’s important to consider not just the things you’re good at but, more importantly, what your interests are. As the saying goes: ‘choose a job you love, and you’ll never have to work a day in your life’.

QS teamed up with EU Business School to come up with five of the top industries around the world where you could pursue a fulfilling career.

Sports management - here we come!

From the NFL to the Olympics, Wimbledon to Formula One, the sports industry is a multi-billion-dollar business bursting with unique career opportunities on the sidelines for those who want to combine their passion for sports and business.

Thanks to developments in digital technology, fields such as sport analytics, branding and sponsorship are rapidly evolving and there are plenty of roles available for today’s graduates.

Plus, you might even end up working with the world’s most famous athletes.

Job opportunities include: Professional team management, Marketing and promotions management, Community management, Corporate sponsorship

 

The digital technology industry needs those in the know

Although digital technologies such as close cousins VR (virtual reality) and AR (augmented reality), along with machine learning, cloud computing and AI (artificial intelligence) are still in their infancy, they have a lot of potential.

Giant tech companies such as Microsoft and Google are investing in them, so perhaps swotting up on your digital literacy and technological skillset will stand you in good stead for years to come.

Now, it’s important to understand that although you may have the technological skills to grasp these exciting new complexes, core knowledge in digital business, design and innovation can bring your expertise full circle.

A report by Forbes suggests the integration of digital technologies such as artificial intelligence will open up an estimated 58 million exciting career opportunities over the next few years.

Safe to say you’d do well to get your foot in the job door now then.

Job opportunities include: Digital innovation management, Information technology, Digital startups

 

Finance technology is making waves in the traditional world of banking

You’d have to have your head buried in the sand to not have heard of FinTech, bitcoin or cryptocurrencies.

This crossover between technology and financial services is starting to make a dent in the status quo as traditional banks attempt to keep up with fresh and innovative ways of handling money anywhere at any time. As the FinTech industry continues to grow and develop, roles within the industry are becoming more diverse too.

Job opportunities include: Apps developer, Data scientist

 

Digital advertising and content marketing mean big bucks!

This is one industry where you can expect to see big shakeups as organizations and businesses continue to invest more money than ever on their digital advertising and creative marketing communication campaigns.

As a digital business professional in the world of digital advertising and content marketing, you’ll need to pay attention to cultural, social and, of course, business trends in order to navigate and deploy the best course of action for ensuring excellent community engagement and positive user experience. Innovative thinking and creativity are highly prized in this industry, as is having a solid understanding of how business works.

Job opportunities include: Online marketing, Web developer, UX designer

 

The renewable energy industry is set to ensure a sustainable future

Electric cars, rooftop solar panels and wind turbine farms are no longer the niche and expensive energy alternative they were once considered to be.

It’s predicted that in just six years, the renewable energy market will be worth an estimated $2,253 billion. Job growth is also expected to rise by 115 percent between 2016 and 2026, so it comes as no surprise that it’s an industry that’s really heating up (excuse the pun). 

Job opportunities include: Smart city planning, Sustainable consulting, Zero-consumption home design
