2020 and Beyond: Top Jobs to Watch-Out For

As we look at the future of jobs in 2020 and beyond, we are immediately confounded by the possibility of massive job loss- thanks to the advent of technology. The World Economic Forum has come out with a report that states that the world is probably staring at 5 million job losses by the year 2020. And, taking other similar reports into account, it can well be said that the world will stand to lose around 7 million jobs – most of them are tipped to be white-collar or administrative jobs.

Today, in the course of the post, we will be looking at the top jobs of 2020 and beyond. This primer – we hope – will be of help to those who are at that phase of their life where they are weighing their career options. Here is a look at the top jobs of 2020 and beyond. Read on in order to be duly guided in this regard.


Yes. It has been opined that with the advent of time, people will eventually start living longer on average and with a longer life, the need for caregivers will intensify simultaneously as well. What more? All the aspects of the healthcare sector are poised for tremendous growth as well! The surge in demand for technical refinements like robotic surgical equipment, telemedicine and other forms of automation will be there, yet the demand for medical healthcare givers will not really diminish at any stage. It is simply because of the fact that the healthcare sector would keep being committed to meeting the healthcare needs of more and more people in the years to come!

The demand for data analysts will go up!

Yes come 2020, the world will be banking more on data analysts than ever before. With the passage of time it is poised to witness more intense data interruptions and it’s the data analysts that will have to step in in order to make sense of all the data which has been generated by the technological disruptions.


Yes! Sales and similar jobs are poised to experience tremendous growth in the years to come. It has been estimated that by 2025, jobs like marketing specialists, sales representatives, and customer service representatives – each- will grow by more than 6% to 18% !  Notably, we are also not looking at the increased inclusion of robots anytime soon and that’s primarily because of the fact that robots will take up a fairly long time to embrace soft skills like emotional and social intelligence. The new media literacy isn’t anything that they will be able to grasp  in the immediate future.

Computer and Mathematical jobs are likely to increase

Some of the designations including software developers, computer programmers and information security analysts will experience steady growth in the years to come. By 2020, they will be considered among the top jobs.


Notably, if not a significant rise in demand, architect and engineering jobs will continue to experience steady growth in 2020.

So, make sure you’re keeping a watch on the growth chart registered by each of the  aforementioned jobs.
