Over the next couple of weeks I am going to be giving a few presentations at the University of Minnesota about job search, networking and how work… how we do it, when and where is changing.
Part of the presentation is what employers are looking for now and how that may change over the next few years. And in part how these jobs, the skills needed for them, may change.
In doing the research I’ll be posting some info here on the blog.
There are some obvious trends with “Top Jobs in the U.S.” surveys… I.T. and health care dominate most of the “top jobs” because of demand and salary. Next comes some marketing and sales. That’s a not surprise as companies are hyper focused on growing revenue. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) are also highly ranked.
Note that the surveys use different data for their rankings but generally come to the same results.
