The best sectors to work in
Growing tired of the same-old nine to five? If the monotony of your current job is getting too much for you, it may be time for a change in career. To help you choose, take a look at our rundown of the best sectors to work in below:
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few decades, you’ve probably noticed society’s growing dependence on technology. New software packages and apps are emerging daily, as businesses try to attract their target audience via digital means.
As a result, the software industry is a great sector to work in. Not only will you work on a huge variety of projects, the sheer demand in the industry means software development jobs offer great job security — something that can be quite rare in the current economy.
However, you’ll have to be capable of working in a fast-paced and ever-changing environment. Take recruitment software company HRS for example. The brand has grown quickly since it was established in 2000 and now offers a variety of CRM solutions. This shows that to succeed in the industry, you’ll need to be incredibly adaptable, predicting changes before they occur.
Marketing is another great sector to work in, offering a brilliant outlet for creatives. As every brand needs marketing, there are plenty of routes available, from traditional to online opportunities.
To succeed, you’ll need to be incredibly creative. Just like the software industry, you’ll proactively make decisions to place your clients in front of the right audiences, growing the brand and helping them succeed.
The sector is incredibly competitive, so you’ll need to be at the cutting edge if you really want to make an impact.
Money makes the world go round, so a career in the financial industry is a great choice. It’s rare that you’ll come across a business that does not have a finance department, so the job opportunities are plentiful.
The sector offers a clear line of progression, so it’s great for starting your career at an entry level and working your way up. Many mid to higher level roles are incredibly well paid too.
