The Future Job Market

The future job market is likely to be just like today's job market - anywhere that job seekers and employers intersect… so really, it could be just about anywhere.

There are local, state, national and international organizations which together comprise the job market. Deciding where to focus your job search depends in large part on your skill set and your career path.

If you speak two or more languages fluently and are looking for employment as an interpreter, there are a lot of opportunities open to you in places all over the world. You will not be looking for open positions in the same places you would if you were instead looking for work as an actor as your opportunities would be far more limited.

How do you know where to look for a job? First, let's focus on who the employment providers are.

The future job market is enormous, whether you are looking for federal government jobs or work from home jobs. The list below is only a partial list of employers.

  •     Government agencies
  •     Large corporations
  •     Non-profit organizations
  •     Small-business
  •     Farms/Agriculture
  •     Universities/Colleges
  •     Work from home businesses
  •     National Parks
  •     Private K-12 schools
  •     Web-based businesses

How do job seekers find employment-providers? There are many different ways to learn about open positions.

  •     Job Banks
  •     Professional Associations
  •     Networking
  •     State Agencies
  •     Headhunters
  •     Temp Agencies
  •     College Placement Services
  •     Career Fairs
  •     Private Employment Agencies
  •     Classified Ads
  •     Contacting employers directly
  •     Web Sites

This is not a comprehensive list, but it should give you some good starting points. Don't forget to use the internet, too. The web is a great source of job-related information. There are websites run by employment agencies, headhunters, large companies and even academic institutions' placement offices. The internet offers a wealth of resources for job seekers.

When you are searching for employment, research and assess the market conditions first and come up with a plan to land the position you are looking for, as well as how you plan to go about your search.

This is the way to ensure success in today's job market and in the future job market. Take your time and plan carefully. It is exceedingly rare that anyone simply lands in the perfect position through luck alone – it is planning and research which can get you there, so start now!

You can do this...just take it a step at a time.
