App, Software, Web Jobs Showing Major Growth


IF YOU’RE UNEMPLOYED AND LOOKING TO START A NEW CAREER, THIS COULD HELP. THE JOB MARKET IS STEADILY IMPROVED SINCE THE GREAT RECESSION. A NEW REPORT SHOWS WHO HAS BEEN DOING THE HIRING. RICK LOVE IS SWITCHING CAREERS AT THE AGE OF 45. THE FORMER JOB RECRUITER IS TAKING CLASSES TO BECOME A WEB DEVELOPER. THERE IS A TON OF OPPORTUNITY OUT THERE. AND THAT WAS THE BIG REASON. THAT OPPORTUNITY FOR A GOOD JOB IS WHY MANY STUDENTS HAVE COME TO THE NEW YORK CODE AND DESIGN ACADEMY. HOW MANY OF ARE YOU HERE BECAUSE YOU THINK THE JOB MARKET IS GOING TO BE GOOD IN THESE FIELDS? I THINK THAT IS EVERYBODY. AND A NEW REPORT AGREES. CAREER BUILDER.COM FOUND SINCE 2010, NEW JOBS FOR APP, SOFTWARE AND WELL DEVELOPERS HAVE ALL SEEN MAJOR GROWTH. AND TECHNOLOGY IS NUMBER ONE. CAREER BUILDER JENNIFER GRAPH SAYS THE MEDICAL FIELD IS ANOTHER INDUSTRY THAT IS GROWING. MORE THAN 300,000 REGISTERED NURSES AND A QUARTER MILLION HOME HEALTH AIDS HAVE BEEN HIRED IN THE PAST SEVEN YEARS. THANKS IN PART TO AGING BABY BOOMERS. HEALTH CARE WILL CONTINUE TO BE A HOT AREA. THERE IS ALWAYS DEMAND THERE. THE REPORT ALSO FOUND BIG GAINS IN CONSTRUCTION. AND CHEFS ARE IN HIGH DEMAND AS MORE AMERICANS EAT OUT. AND THEN THERE IS THE RISE OF THE GIG ECONOMY. I THINK WITH THE ADVENT OF UBER AND AIR BNB AND OTHER ORGANIZATIONS, YOU DO SEE MORE PEOPLE TAKING ON FREELANCE ASSIGNMENTS AND I THINK THAT IS A TREND THAT WILL CONTINUE TO GROW. TAKING THIS CLASS, LEARNING THE TECHNOLOGY, IT IS GOING TO GIVE ME THE ABILITY TO CONTINUE THIS AS A CAREER FOREVER. SO I RETIRE AND HOPEFULLY AT 54. IT IS POSSIBLE, WEB DEVELOPERS MAKE 40% MORE THAN THE AVERAGE WORKER, OVER $72,000 A YEAR. I KNOW KIM HAS BEEN WATCHING THAT WHOLE STORY AND LIKE OH, MAYBE SHY GO INTO CONSTRUCTION. AND — MAYBE I SHOULD GO INTO CONSTRUCTION. AND WORK OUTSIDE AND GET A JOB AND THIS IS A GOOD JOB RIGHT NOW, ISN’T IT?
