Choosing a Lasting Career: The Job-by-Job Outlook for Work's New Age

 the job by job outlook for work's new age

People choosing a career have a lot of information available, but almost all of it presents only today’s situation. What will happen with specific work opportunities, though, over the next two decades, after which most of today’s new college graduates will not have even reached middle age? Choosing a Lasting Career answers that question. It starts by showing that while the jobs crisis is permanent and will not end with better times, careers will not be affected uniformly. The book then presents a broad set of factors likely to affect how work opportunities will fare over the next two decades. It provides a catalog of 506 different jobs, each rated in 11 different future-leaning categories. It is valuable not only for those seeking opportunities after graduation, but for others who want to invest their time and money in a long-term position that will not be swept away by automation, globalization, efficiency, or other factors we cannot ignore.

"A well-researched, fascinating look at jobs that will remain viable for the 20 years. If you think being an accountant is a more stable long-term career choice than art director, you may be in for a surprise. People entering the workforce or considering changing jobs should take the conclusions presented in this book into account as they plan their careers."  Susan Daffron, author of 14 books and president of Logical Expressions, Inc.
