Costa Rica News – What jobs will be in high demand in 2025? Demographic changes as well as technological ones point us to see a trend in opening employment opportunities. Studying for a career in care services or technology are good bets.
The International Labor Organization foresees 475,000 million jobs being created in the world between 2020 and 2030 in the field of caring for people. The population over age 65 is not as large as the population between 15 and 29 years old but this will equalize by 2050 leading to more opportunities in caring for the elderly, careers such as doctors, nurses, and assisted living aides.
Additionally, with more women working, there is a greater demand for care services such as education and care for minors. The relational nature of care work limits the possibility to replace these jobs with robots or technology.
Speaking of technology, new jobs are being created in this field, such as optimizers of drone traffic, molecular gastronomy and virtual reality architects. It is estimated that the need for software developers, systems analysts and marketing specialists will increase by 20% by 2025.
