Do you think you know what you want to do with your life? Hold up. Jobs that didn’t even exist a decade ago are out there today. Now even students are looking for part time jobs to ensure financial independence!

What we do today could change in a few short months. What’s the catalyst? Technology, information flow, screen dependency, and a desire to do things differently.

Marketing, finance, transportation, communication, programming, health, fitness, and education remain in demand. What people do is essentially the same. It’s how they do it that differs.

10 in demand jobs didn’t exist ten years ago-

1 Social media manager

A decade ago, there was no need to manage social media except for individuals. Facebook and LinkedIn were babies, and Twitter didn’t exist.

Nearly 75 percent of adults are on social media today — it’s used for advertising, sales, marketing, brand awareness, and many other aspects of the business.

Marketing managers use social media platforms to promote products, blog posts, photographs, and other media. They also measure audience interaction and user experience, monetize results, and make marketing decisions based on their findings.

2. Specialist in Search Engine Optimization

SEO, or search engine optimization, is becoming a household name. Not so ten years ago. Now, SEO is one of the most important jobs in the digital landscape.

An SEO specialist’s main goal is to improve a website’s searchability, getting it to the first page of search results. How? Curated content based on keywords, longtails, alt-text, and other things that didn’t exist ten years ago.

3. Developer of mobile applications

Apps have taken off in the last five years. The iOS App Store and Google Play have brought apps to the forefront of the digital economy. App designers design the creative end of new apps. To create the actual app that you use on your smartphone or tablet, the developer works with the designer.

Ever wonder what app developers will do in ten years? So do we. Who knows what app developers will do…

4. Drivers for Uber

It used to be that folks took taxis, buses, trains, or walked. Today, there’s Uber. Even more, there are Uber drivers. And it’s a job that relies only on an app. Though it has only been a job for a few years, technology is moving so quickly that it may soon be replaced by driverless cars…

5. Engineer for driverless cars

Even though driverless cars do not require drivers, they still need people to design, engineer, produce, and maintain them. How will the position look in a year?

6. Producer of podcasts

Today, some can’t imagine their lives without podcasts. They bring in millions of dollars and have evolved from basements to real businesses.

8. Instructor of Zumba

It has only been a decade or so since this Latino and Afrodance fusion of aerobic fitness has become popular.

Fitness instructors are trained in this international franchise and can start their classes. Children, teens, adults, and retirees are all taking classes!

9. Influencers on Instagram

Users who gained significant followings on Instagram began partnering with brands to promote products and services to their audiences when endorsement deals used to be limited to celebrities. As influencers have become celebrities themselves, they have launched makeup lines and written books based on their brands.

17% of British 11 to 16-year-olds want to be social media influencers when they grow up (granted, the survey was conducted by an influencer marketing firm).

In 2019, the word “influencer” was officially added to the dictionary.

10. The YouTuber

Several of YouTube’s biggest stars started posting videos in 2005 just for friends and family. Since then, their channels have grown to millions of subscribers and they’ve turned their hobby into a career.

As well as Google’s AdSense partnership program, YouTubers earn money through influencer sponsorships and partnerships with other companies (not all YouTube stars are influencers, but most of them are).

Forbes reports that the top 10 YouTubers collectively earned more than $180 million between June 2017 and June 2018. The top earner, Ryan ToysReviews, earned $22 million.
