Finding the right job and career can be a tricky business. The job market regularly shifts and what may be hot today may fall by the wayside tomorrow. However, the following industries are experiencing rapid growth while also showing the potential to remain viable over the long haul.
While craft breweries have become common in the past few years, beer is hardly the only beverage experiencing a craft renaissance. Wineries, distilleries, cider mills, and sparkling beverages have exploded in the craft beverage world. Indeed, as beer alternatives have risen, the craft beer market has leveled off. The industry, however, remains exceptionally strong. Diversified offerings, expansion into new markets and a focus on taprooms and direct distribution are ensuring strong markets for all craft beverages.
Car sharing has become increasingly popular in the past decade with apps like Lyft and Uber appearing on the tech scene. With this increased popularity comes an increased demand for car sharing drivers. In fact, the worldwide car sharing market is estimated to grow by over 30 percent by 2020, due to more businesses using these services for their employees. And the good news is, all you need to know to succeed at this job is how to drive.
Specialized Freight Trucking
The trucking industry, in general, is facing a distinct shortage of drivers, which means better wages and more openings. The most lucrative trucking options involve specialized trucking. This includes things like driving livestock haulers, dump trucks and auto carriers. Generally, most cargo that involves irregular shapes, loading, weights, and so forth fall into this category. Many companies will provide training in this specialized hauling and will provide regular work.
Research is predicting that pest control will see over a 5.5 percent expansion through 2020. This industry, in which agents remove insects and animals from homes and businesses, has grown rapidly with residential and commercial building spurts. Additionally, as the science behind things like insect sprays and chemicals has advanced, pest control agents are increasingly becoming more knowledgeable and specialized, with training provided by many companies. Being able to properly assess and treat a pest problem can be a tricky task and is not one likely to dry up anytime soon.
Whether starting a new career or contemplating a change in your life, these options could be what you are looking for. They all have been around for a long time, but are seeing unprecedented growth, profits and wages. Additionally, all look to be viable ways to earn money both now and for years to come.
