If you are in your final year at university, you will already be looking at potential careers, and if you chose your subjects well, you should have quite a few career options ahead. Here are a few top professions that will be in great demand in the coming years, in no particular order.
- Web Development – If you majored in computer science, you can embark on a great career as a web developer. This might include website design, social media marketing, cyber-security or even app design, which is very much in demand at present, and front-end developers are at the high end of the pay scale.
- Digital Marketing – Let’s face it, the words ‘digital and marketing’ are already inseparable, and by specialising in search engine optimisation (SEO), you can help businesses to achieve higher rankings within a Google search. If you are looking for a career that is stable, SEO is a great choice, although you will have to keep up with the rapid pace of development, which means the playing field is constantly changing.
- Scientific Research & Development – The field of R&D offers the science minded learners a great opportunity to learn more about their chosen field. There happens to be one very well-respected American international school in Bangkok that excels in the sciences and many of their students go onto become chemists or physicists working in their chosen industry. The Nano industry is blossoming, and with 3d printing technology, this is indeed an exciting time to enter the career arena.
- Tourism & Hospitality – No matter how digital the world becomes, people will still take vacations, and in a country like Thailand, over 50m people visit annually, so there are many exciting opportunities in tourism & hospitality industries. The south of Thailand is home to many 5-star luxury hotels and resorts, all of which require quality employees, and if you graduate in this field, you can expect to walk into an assistant manager’s position, and in a few years, you could be running the facility.
- Health & Medicine – We will always need doctors and nurses, and with Nano technology coming into play, the modern doctor or surgeon would incorporate AI into their work. Thailand, for example, is a global hub for medical treatment, with some of the best hospitals in the world located in Bangkok. If you are not doctor material, why not consider the administrative side, or perhaps Human Resources – another essential for the industry.
It is essential that you plan your career from an early age, and make sure you do some thorough research into your chosen career, in order that you can make an informed decision when the time comes. If you are studying in an international school, make sure you consult with your in-house careers officer, who is there to offer students assistance in all aspects of choosing a career, and with their expert guidance, you will make all the right choices and enjoy a rewarding career.
