There are times in life when you might find yourself struggling to find work. The harder you look, the bigger the problems you encounter. There are no viable jobs out there, and it can feel like you’re going to be unemployed forever.
If you want to avoid a repetition of these feelings of hopelessness in the future, then there are options. Certain jobs and industries will always be in demand. For as long as human civilization as we know it is standing, there are careers that will always have customers; companies operating in sectors where they will always need staff. By choosing to change your career or retrain to one of these professions, you can be sure any period of unemployed listlessness you have fell into in the past, will be the last time you ever experience it…
- Funeral Director
Well, that’s… not exactly starting cheerfully, is it?
Okay, so there’s no doubt the idea of working in the funeral industry is more than a little bit macabre. However, if you think you can handle it, then you’ll never be short of work—because so many people can’t handle it. If you are a compassionate person who wants to help others during a difficult time, you might just find it’s a good fit for you. It’s a rewarding industry with a variety of different options, so while you may initially feel revulsion at the idea, that might be worth getting over to see what’s possible.
- Medical Biller/Coder
The role of biller/coder is a huge growing healthcare field that is direly in need of fresh recruits. Thanks to the growth in electronic medical record keeping, retraining into the field can future-proof your career strategy.
In a nutshell, a biller/coder works to compile invoices and handle insurance claims within the healthcare field. Healthcare is something of a buzz phrase around the political system, which might make you wary – but it shouldn’t. Whatever happens in Washington with regards to healthcare, there’s always going to be a need for trained, competent biller/coders to deal with the financial side of the industry.
Where there are humans, there are going to be humans making mess. There will also be humans who have no desire to clear that mess for themselves. As a result of this laziness amongst the general populace, moving into the cleaning field is a great way of ensuring that you’ve got work for the long term.
If you have ever flirted with the idea of starting your own business, then you can’t go far wrong with cleaning. It’s relatively inexpensive to get started, and then advertise yourself to a range of domestic and commercial premises. Alternatively, there are always agencies looking for more cleaners – so it’s definitely worth giving a try, especially as there’s no specific qualification hoops you’re going to have to jump through.
It’s fair to say that finding work is tough, but that doesn’t mean you have to always be on the outside of the job market, looking in. By moving your career into one of the above fields, you could truly revolutionize your future—for the better.
