promising relevant professions in Russia and in the world, for girls and men

The most in-demand professions for the next 10 years

Knowl­edge of the most demand­ed pro­fes­sions for the next 10 years will allow you to decide on the choice of your spe­cial­iza­tion. But at the same time, it is nec­es­sary to clear­ly under­stand the fea­tures of each of these areas of activ­i­ty. It is also use­ful to study the intri­ca­cies of choice for a par­tic­u­lar per­son.

New promising options

Assess­ing the future spe­cial­iza­tion, it is not enough to make sure that you espe­cial­ly like it. In con­di­tions of tur­bu­lence and unpre­dictabil­i­ty, many peo­ple should choose the most demand­ed areas of train­ing in the world for the next 10 years (and pos­si­bly even fur­ther). Graph­ic design­ers are one of those indus­tries. But not any, but only clear­ly focused on any part of the design and honed their skills to per­fec­tion; you have to con­stant­ly learn and improve.

The increas­ing use of unmanned vehi­cles in both civ­il and mil­i­tary fields makes the pro­fes­sion rel­e­vant robot­ics engi­neer. Close­ly adja­cent to it is the posi­tion pro­gram­mer. It can hard­ly be called new in itself, but it is a fact that such spe­cial­ists will not be left with­out atten­tion. With­out them, the same robots will be almost use­less. You can pay atten­tion to oth­er areas of pro­gram­ming; the grow­ing iso­la­tion of dif­fer­ent states and economies makes it rel­e­vant to cre­ate a full range of pro­grams with­in the coun­try.

One of the most in-demand posi­tions is an elec­tron­ic secu­ri­ty spe­cial­ist. Almost every month there is news about the leak of data­bas­es, includ­ing bank­ing and gov­ern­ment ones. The task of pro­fes­sion­als is to pre­vent this or reduce risks. In addi­tion, the rel­e­vance of cyber­se­cu­ri­ty is also increased by the same dete­ri­o­ra­tion in the inter­na­tion­al sit­u­a­tion.

Genet­ic engi­neer­ing is in demand no less than the pro­tec­tion of infor­ma­tion. The peo­ple employed in this area large­ly deter­mine the state of affairs in phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals and agri­cul­ture, med­i­cine and fun­da­men­tal biol­o­gy. A sep­a­rate promis­ing branch is new food tech­nolo­gies: both genet­ic and bio­chem­i­cal.

Return­ing to the top of the list, it is worth point­ing out that since the num­ber of drones is grow­ing, their oper­a­tors will not be left idle.

They can find a place for them­selves in:

  • agri­cul­ture;

  • emer­gency ser­vices;

  • ener­gy com­pa­nies;

  • rail­way struc­tures;

  • min­ing;

  • orga­ni­za­tions oper­at­ing pipelines and pow­er lines;

  • film stu­dios and when shoot­ing tele­vi­sion pro­grams;

  • a num­ber of oth­er areas where you need to explore some­thing from a height, and in the future from water or under water.

Actual professions in Russia

Over the past 200 years, a seri­ous indus­try has been cre­at­ed in our coun­try and a large amount of resources have been extract­ed. Both have led to neg­a­tive con­se­quences for the nat­ur­al envi­ron­ment — and there­fore are impor­tant envi­ron­men­tal engi­neers. They assess the actu­al state of affairs and can work out ways to improve it. Each case of the deple­tion of nature is unique, and only the pros will be able to deal with it thor­ough­ly.

But the dis­ap­pear­ance of eas­i­ly acces­si­ble resources makes the search for new min­er­al deposits urgent. There­fore, in the fore­see­able future, the impor­tance of geol­o­gists and geo­physi­cistswho can dis­cov­er and study them. And after them will come spe­cial­ists who can estab­lish pro­duc­tion. It should be not­ed at the same time that alter­na­tive ener­gy is los­ing its rel­e­vance and can­not be con­sid­ered a good choice.

But in any com­mer­cial orga­ni­za­tion, under today’s unsta­ble con­di­tions, the demand for risk man­agers. They quick­ly iden­ti­fy the most unpre­dictable sit­u­a­tions and busi­ness trans­ac­tions. And they give advice on how to deal with them cor­rect­ly.

Since the “why do some­thing, you can always buy abroad” approach turned out to be delib­er­ate­ly wrong, the impor­tance of domes­tic pro­duc­tion will increase. There­fore, the activ­i­ties of tech­nol­o­gists and engi­neers will be rel­e­vant.

The field of work for them is very wide:

  • devel­op­ment of new tech­nol­o­gy and its com­po­nents;

  • main­te­nance and repair;

  • prepa­ra­tion of doc­u­men­ta­tion;

  • pro­mo­tion of full oper­a­tion;

  • mod­ern­iza­tion.

But along with engi­neers and tech­nol­o­gists, those who will direct­ly pro­duce new prod­ucts, machines and appa­ra­tus, their parts and assem­blies are also need­ed. This includes:

  • CNC machine oper­a­tors;

  • turn­ers;

  • millers;

  • lock­smiths;

  • radio mechan­ics;

  • col­lec­tors;

  • qual­i­ty con­trollers.

Of course, the demand­ed pro­fes­sions of the near future do not end there. So, the same indus­try needs con­stant research of raw mate­ri­als, semi-fin­ished prod­ucts, fin­ished prod­ucts. This means that she will need lab­o­ra­to­ry assis­tants of var­i­ous spe­cial­iza­tions:

  • min­er­alog­i­cal analy­sis;

  • ultra­sound exam­i­na­tions;

  • assay analy­sis;

  • insu­lat­ing mate­ri­als;

  • spec­tral analy­sis;

  • x‑ray study.

But these are still rather “niche” direc­tions. Their demand is due to the fact that few peo­ple choose such train­ing pro­files. In addi­tion to them, indus­try, con­struc­tion and ener­gy will invari­ably be in demand:

  • welders and cut­ters;

  • load­ing and unload­ing oper­a­tors;

  • lift­ing machine oper­a­tors;

  • drilling spe­cial­ists.

Walk­ing through any city, you can eas­i­ly notice the abun­dance of var­i­ous phar­ma­cies. And this direct­ly sug­gests that phar­ma­cists and phar­ma­cists can also be very promis­ing pro­fes­sions. Spe­cial­ists in these areas can find a place not only in phar­ma­cies, but also in ware­hous­es, lab­o­ra­to­ries, and drug fac­to­ries.

There is an ongo­ing demand for health work­ers. It is rep­re­sent­ed by a huge num­ber of areas of activ­i­ty, and it is not only a mat­ter of a wide vari­ety of med­ical spe­cial­ties. A huge con­tri­bu­tion is made by med­ical work­ers of mid­dle and low­er ranks.

And you can also become in this area:

  • lab­o­ra­to­ry assis­tant;

  • sta­tis­ti­cian;

  • researcher;

  • med­ical geneti­cist;

  • foren­sic expert;

  • bal­ne­ol­o­gist;

  • sur­geon of var­i­ous pro­files.

But if med­i­cine does not attract at all, then you can look at anoth­er invari­ably rel­e­vant area — trade. Ven­dors spe­cial­ize in one prod­uct or anoth­er: gro­ceries or books, flow­ers or shoes, san­i­tary ware or per­fumes. Giv­en this, almost every­one will be able to find the most pre­ferred direc­tions for them­selves. Impor­tant­ly, spe­cial edu­ca­tion is usu­al­ly not required.

The posi­tion of mar­keters also retains a cer­tain demand. Pro­mo­tion of goods and ser­vices, incit­ing and main­tain­ing sus­tain­able inter­est in them are impor­tant com­po­nents of the activ­i­ty of any com­mer­cial asso­ci­a­tion. And this is just unthink­able with­out study­ing the demand, the posi­tions of com­peti­tors and their strate­gies, the state of the indus­try as a whole. Posi­tions close­ly adja­cent to mar­keters mer­chan­dis­ers, super­vi­sors and pro­mot­ers.

Not every­thing is clear with legal spe­cial­ties. The like­li­hood of suc­cess­ful employ­ment in the pri­vate sec­tor is rather low. The num­ber of lawyers, notaries, legal advis­ers is now very impres­sive, and it is not a triv­ial task to stand out among them. How­ev­er, the prospects for experts in law in the pub­lic ser­vice are quite good: in the judi­cia­ry, the pros­e­cu­tor’s office and the inves­ti­gat­ing author­i­ties.

The posi­tion of teach­ers is also rather ambigu­ous. This pro­fes­sion is sup­port­ed by its sta­ble need, as well as a large num­ber of vacan­cies. How­ev­er, the lev­el of require­ments is far from always com­pen­sat­ed by appro­pri­ate wages. This prob­lem, alas, is char­ac­ter­is­tic of both pub­lic and pri­vate edu­ca­tion. You can also try your­self as a tutor or a pri­vate teacher. But here you already have to look for cus­tomers your­self.

Until recent­ly, posi­tions in the field of orga­nized tourism were con­sid­ered very promis­ing. Due to the objec­tive­ly grow­ing frag­men­ta­tion of the plan­et, they are far from being as attrac­tive as before. The very struc­ture of the indus­try will also change. Domes­tic tourism and trips to Asian coun­tries will become more rel­e­vant.

There may be some decrease in the share of resort hol­i­days in favor of hik­ing in unin­hab­it­ed places; All these trends should also be tak­en into account.

Nuances of choice

A pro­fes­sion can be use­ful for both men and women pro­gram­mer (although it is still a lit­tle more “male”). There are a lot of spe­cif­ic options for activ­i­ties in this area. How­ev­er, one must under­stand that a large num­ber of peo­ple rush there, and wages do not stand out so much against the gen­er­al back­ground. It can be pre­dict­ed with cer­tain­ty that they will even out even more over time.

Much more sta­ble prospects in the med­ical field. There is a group of areas that allow you to count on rel­a­tive­ly high incomes:

  • den­tistry;

  • surgery;

  • anes­the­si­ol­o­gy;

  • treat­ment of orphan dis­eases;

  • obstet­rics;

  • neu­ro­phys­i­ol­o­gy;

  • foren­sic exam­i­na­tion;

  • cos­me­tol­ogy;

  • pedi­atrics.

Those who wish not only to work in the field of trade, but also to be more than an ordi­nary sell­er, should take a clos­er look at the vacan­cies sales man­agers. Such spe­cial­ists usu­al­ly receive, along with salaries, a cer­tain per­cent­age of sales. They sell a vari­ety of items and ser­vices, which will have to be thor­ough­ly under­stood.

A sol­id and impres­sive male pro­fes­sion with a good salary is the posi­tion of a finan­cial ana­lyst. It can be use­ful both in the state appa­ra­tus, and in the bank­ing sec­tor, insur­ance com­pa­nies. Ana­lysts find out how things are going any­where, what needs to be done urgent­ly, and what is bet­ter not to do. Such work requires good knowl­edge in the field of eco­nom­ics and a math­e­mat­i­cal mind­set.

For those who can not decide on an engi­neer­ing spe­cial­ty, you can rec­om­mend a posi­tion drilling engi­neer. This is a diverse and inter­est­ing pro­fes­sion that will be in demand for decades to come. Drilling engi­neers aren’t just for oil and gas com­pa­nies. Often they are attract­ed by con­struc­tion com­pa­nies and orga­ni­za­tions involved in the arrange­ment of water wells.

Those who are ready for hard work and long stay in a lim­it­ed space among the same peo­ple will suit the pro­fes­sion of a sailor. In a few months, it is quite real­is­tic to earn as much as many land spe­cial­ists receive in 1.5–2 years. But we must remem­ber about the con­stant risk, as well as the fact that this is a sphere for the hardy. Tech­ni­cal pro­fes­sions of a dif­fer­ent plan will be rel­e­vant.

Not to men­tion the trans­la­tors. Despite the decline in the impor­tance of Eng­lish, Ger­man and oth­er Euro­pean lan­guages ​​in the Russ­ian econ­o­my, they still retain their rel­a­tive rel­e­vance. Of course, a promis­ing option would be to mas­ter Chi­nese, Indi­an or Ara­bic. Accord­ing to the trans­la­tors them­selves, the impor­tance of Kore­an and Turk­ish is grow­ing, while a cer­tain demand for Ital­ian, French, Span­ish and Por­tuguese remains.

An impor­tant nuance: trans­la­tions from Russ­ian into any for­eign lan­guage are notice­ably more dif­fi­cult, but they are also paid high­er, because there are few­er such spe­cial­ists.

The grow­ing ten­sion in the world makes the career of a mil­i­tary man more and more sig­nif­i­cant. Of course, it is fraught with great risk, but the prob­a­bil­i­ty of remain­ing unnec­es­sary is min­i­mal. Among the mil­i­tary pro­fes­sions, the high­est paid on aver­age are naval spe­cial­ties. In gen­er­al, incomes are very attrac­tive, but you have to “pay” for them. And the pay­back is not only, in fact, the risk of hos­til­i­ties, but also dif­fi­cult cli­mat­ic con­di­tions, con­stant trav­el­ing, and poor house­hold ameni­ties.

It makes lit­tle sense to choose the path of a coach in pro­fes­sion­al sports. The sig­nif­i­cance of such spe­cial­ists is declin­ing, includ­ing due to the delib­er­ate impos­si­bil­i­ty of becom­ing famous through their wards at the Olympiads and a num­ber of oth­er inter­na­tion­al com­pe­ti­tions. But on the oth­er hand, those who will train ama­teurs and teach the basics of phys­i­cal cul­ture will be more in demand.

How­ev­er, if sports and near-sport activ­i­ties are unsta­ble, then the same can­not be said about the posi­tion of an elec­tri­cian. Such spe­cial­ists will remain rel­e­vant in 10 and 40 years. You can work almost every­where: on land and at sea, in civ­il and mil­i­tary orga­ni­za­tions, in a farm or forestry, in a metrop­o­lis.

For those who love to make some­thing, work with their hands, the pro­fes­sion of a car­pen­ter or car­pen­ter may be suit­able. Can­di­dates are required to have a sec­ondary spe­cial­ized edu­ca­tion. The work is very diverse, and if you choose the path of pri­vate orders, you can even alter­nate the pro­duc­tion of dif­fer­ent things. It is worth con­sid­er­ing that car­pen­try prac­tice is quite trau­mat­ic.

For girls, in prin­ci­ple, any of the above spe­cial­iza­tions is suit­able. But still there are areas in which they are still much less com­mon: in the armed forces, foren­sic med­i­cine or on bulk car­ri­ers. For those who are men­tal­ly pre­pared for a rel­a­tive­ly dif­fi­cult and not always fine, frankly speak­ing, work, you can try your­self as a nurse. (For your infor­ma­tion: there are also men among them, although very rarely yet).

A plus for can­di­dates is the avail­abil­i­ty of med­ical train­ing. You will have to devel­op phys­i­cal strength and endurance. It should be borne in mind that such a sphere is suit­able for those who know how to walk the thin line between empa­thy for the sick and irri­ta­tion towards them.

Some girls show more trac­tion in tech­ni­cal dis­ci­plines, despite the stereo­types. They can be rec­om­mend­ed to start a pro­fes­sion archi­tect. Deter­min­ing the appear­ance of cities and indi­vid­ual dis­tricts, indi­vid­ual hous­es is extreme­ly impor­tant and inter­est­ing. As for work direct­ly in con­struc­tion (as crane oper­a­tors, assem­blers, plas­ter­ers, and so on), this already requires good health and body strength. So every­thing is indi­vid­ual here.

A calmer and more com­fort­able work awaits chemists. They are read­i­ly accept­ed in lab­o­ra­to­ries and indus­tri­al enter­pris­es. You can make a career in the field of chem­i­cal research or exper­tise.

Psy­chol­o­gy can also be a good female activ­i­ty. Despite some decline in client inter­est, it is still in steady demand.

You will need:

  • obser­va­tion;

  • socia­bil­i­ty;

  • flex­i­bil­i­ty;

  • the abil­i­ty to act out of the box.

​​​​​​Per­sis­tent and ana­lyt­i­cal peo­ple will like the pro­fes­sion of a logis­ti­cian. They will have to estab­lish con­tacts with sup­pli­ers. But trans­porta­tion was and will always be.

Even girls who grav­i­tate towards sta­bil­i­ty should con­sid­er “eter­nal” posi­tions:

  • cook and per­son­nel offi­cer;

  • bak­er and accoun­tant;

  • sub­way dri­ver and florist;

  • train dri­ver and cynol­o­gist;

  • insur­er and con­duc­tor;

  • vet­eri­nar­i­an and proof­read­er.
