What are the best jobs for someone re-entering today’s job market? Perhaps you’ve made important personal and professional choices, such as going back to school, raising a family, joining the Peace Corps or the military, or retiring. On the other hand, maybe you were forced to drop out of the job market due to a major injury or illness, a lengthy period of unemployment, or incarceration. Or maybe you are now forced to re-enter the work world – newly divorced, face financial difficulties, closed your business, or experienced an illness, injury, or death of your spouse.
Whatever your circumstances, you need to identify jobs and employers most receptive to people in your situation as well as convince prospective employers that they should hire you despite your lack of continuous work experience.
Which jobs will grow the fastest and pay the best in the decade ahead? Are certain jobs likely to be outsourced to cheap labor markets abroad? Which jobs are the safest and most secure ones that can lead to long-term career stability and success? How can you quickly prepare for the best jobs in the upcoming decade?
