You’re here because you are 1) planning to change careers in the future, or 2) graduating around this time. Either way, you’re interested to find out what’s in store for you in the workers’ industry in Utah by 2020.
Here’s some great news: you have a lot of options. Utah is one of the states predicted to have a strong and stable job growth until 2020. If that isn’t enough hope for you, Forbes also commended the state’s low unemployment rate.
There are many different jobs available in the state by then, but if you’re not keen on pursuing anything IT such as a big data analyst or a mobile app developer, consider the following:
1. Sales Managers
Despite the rapid growth of IT in the country, even in Utah, sales occupations will remain stable, which is understandable since profit is and will always be the backbone of any business. This also means sales managers will still be in demand in 2020.
Moreover, due to the potential stiff competition in this position, if you want to get ahead, you should take a PMP certification course in Utah. Milestone Management Partners says getting a certificate in project management will also allow you to become a management analyst and retail workers supervisor, which are also in demand.
2. Specialized Sales Specialists
Although this isn’t in the IT field, the specialized sales specialist position is somewhat related because you need to have a thorough understanding of future technologies. It’s essential to know how to operate devices and learn to integrate them in day-to-day operations, which can then speed up lead conversion and increase customer engagement and retention.
3. Biomedical Engineers
Bioengineering is a highly specialized, highly skilled field that requires plenty of years of training and education, but it is also one of the highest paying jobs in the state.
It’s never too early to job hunt or plan a different career path. Use this list as one of your guides.
