Looking To Make Money With A New Career?


When it comes to growing your career or investing your money, options abound. Depending on your interests and skill set, there are a number of paths you could travel down. But not all present the same level of opportunity. Some industries are growing at a rapid pace in 2017. Take a look at these fast-growing industries to explore.


Shoppers have grown to enjoy shopping on their own terms — from the comfort of their home at whatever time is convenient for them. An added benefit is their purchase will be delivered to them in no longer than a few days. People are not only ordering non-perishable products but also fresh food and prepared meals.

Analysts expect e-commerce sales to grow to more than $400 billion by the end of 2018. Customer service, design and writing are just a few of the skills in demand in this industry that can help you land a job.

Commercial Real Estate

 Real estate is known for being a sound financial investment. And with businesses of all sizes needing space to operate from, commercial real estate is a niche market that is seeing great success. This industry focuses on commercial properties that may serve a variety of purposes, including flexible space, industrial space or medical office space. Learn about what the average day is like for a commercial real estate broker to see if it is a good field for you.

Wind Energy

 As the world looks for more renewable energy sources, using wind to create electricity continues to be attractive. A Bloomberg report states that over the past 15 years, the amount of electricity that comes from wind has doubled four times.

Companies need employees to build wind turbines for wind farms, so the manufacturing component of producing wind energy is significant. Scientists, engineers, researchers and product developers are also a few of the professions that could greatly support this industry.

Home Health Care

 More people are choosing to age and receive care in their own home versus going to a facility. It’s more affordable, more comfortable and more convenient, to name a few reasons. As the need for home health care services continues to grow, so do the opportunities in the industry.

Roughly 1.3 million jobs will be added to the home health care industry within the next few years. In addition to evaluating your clinical and physical ability to provide care to others, consider other ways you may be well-suited for a career in home health care.

Finding a job in a boom industry is a smart way to improve your career outlook. Do your research and enjoy learning the new skills needed for your new job.
