I discovered this career finder tool. See What Career Should I Choose?
There is a lovely chart. Here is how I walked myself through the chart. I plugged in Computer and Mathematical occupations and Management, figuring I would find me 🙂
I turned annotations to On. Then I moved the mouse around to see what I would discover about which kinds of occupations would be growing. Verrry interesting.
A month ago or so when I first tried this, Computer and Mathematical occupations and Management would be growing by leaps and bounds. Not surprising. It depends on where you are in the country for what your salary is.
You also want to take a look at at What Career is Right for Me? Never, ever select a career based on the amount of money you think you will make. If you hate the job, you will not succeed, so you won’t make the money. Why? Because you won’t be a good cultural fit, something I write about in Hiring Geeks That Fit. This is not limited to geeks; it’s applicable to everyone.
So, Manage Your Job Search folks, consider this tool. If you try it, please let me know if you found it useful, okay? Thanks.
