A pro­jected grad­u­a­tion with a chance of suc­cess

Which in­dus­tries are hir­ing, which you want to be a part of and where you’ll make the most bang for your buck

The Coast - Career Minded - - SUCCEEDING -

Na­tion­ally, most jobs are go­ing to see an in­crease in po­si­tion open­ings from 6,000 to 20,000 be­tween now and the year 2020. Glob­ally, these num­bers are even higher, rais­ing stu­dents’ hopes that they’ll leave their post-se­condary in­sti­tu­tions with high-salary po­si­tions in or­der to pay off their stu­dent loans. Not only that, but stu­dents are see­ing progress in find­ing jobs in their given field and work­ing with their de­gree rather than against it.

Hav­ing mul­ti­ple ca­reers in one life­time isn’t un­com­mon. Look for­ward to your grad­u­a­tion day, know­ing that you can come out on top. Whether you’re headed back for de­gree num­ber three, or choos­ing your first, the pro­jec­tions for jobs re­quir­ing higher ed­u­ca­tion are ex­tremely com­fort­ing. Here are five ca­reers that are go­ing to have lots of open­ings in com­ing years, ac­cord­ing to COPS (Cana­dian Oc­cu­pa­tional Pro­jec­tion Sys­tem) and LinkedIn Sta­tis­tics col­lected by Forbes.
