Here is some career advice about 5 careers that are becoming quite popular in today’s economy.
CSI – We’ve all watched the slew of C.S.I. TV shows, but what does it actually take to become a crime scene investigator? You should like the idea of law enforcement because that’s where a lot of the jobs are. In some places, a crime scene investigator is also a police officer. Technical schools offering classes in criminal justice are a good place to begin.
Medical Assistant – Dr. Oz hauls people out of his TV audience each day to be his assistant, but in reality medical assistants are pretty well paid and in demand. With the baby boomers getting older and more people becoming patients under health reform there will be lots of jobs.
These are mainly office jobs assisting other health care professionals on the front lines with organizing patient care. You need to be a good communicator to do this job. A certificate from the American Association of Medical Assistants with the title of CMA or Association of Medical Technologists will get you started.
Blogger – How about a professional blogger? Anyone who has their own web site and likes to write can probably easily make the transition to making money doing something like this. Pick a niche you like, IE- gardening or guns, apply some creative writing skills, and you can start this business from home. Once your site is noticed by the search engines and gets traffic, advertisers will also notice it, and you can start earning an income.
Bodyguard – Ex military types aren’t the only ones that can do this. Perhaps you are an ex football player or bouncer at a bar and don’t mind the rough going sometimes. Look at the people you see on TV that require security these days. You’ll need to be athletic and have weapons training and self defense skills to get hired. In some cases having professional driving skills would also be a asset.
Waiter/Waitress – Now not many would probably think of this as a career but it has a lot of things going for it if you stop and think. The skills required are mainly people skills that anyone may possess. You need to wear a smile all the time and be friendly, honest, and willing to work hard. If you are a woman, how you dress and the sexuality you display can help to get repeat customers. Working in an up scale restaurant with lots of customers can be real lucrative … and who’s to know how much you make in tips?
Choosing a career isn’t easy but sometimes what you’re looking for is too obvious for you to see.
