Career Outlook for 2022/2023

The past 2 years have been crazy and challenging for everyone, and careers have been heavily impacted by the chaos of the pandemic. Let's take a look at the career outlook for 2022/2023 and the projected top career fields.

According to Forbes Magazine in an article entitled "The Top 5 Growing Career Fields in 2022" (by Ashley Stahl, Nov. 8, 2021), the top fields for 2022 are as follows:

  • Healthcare
  • Information Technology
  • Supply Chain Management
  • Financial Management
  • Actuarial and Statistician

Now if we take a look at what the US Bureau of Labor Statistics has to say, we can see that there are top career fields for those with and those without a college degree:

Without a College Degree:

  • Construction and Installation
  • Maintenance and Repair
  • Transportation

With a College Degree:

  • Business, Management, and Sales
  • Computers and Engineering
  • Education, Social Services, and Legal
  • Healthcare
  • Media, Arts, and Sports

I am noticing a definite trend! Healthcare always seems to make these types of lists. Technology also is another hot field that will continue to grow in popularity as our technology keeps evolving. However, don't forget my favorite bit of advice: do what you love no matter what the current job trends are!
