Searching for a new career can be tough and exhausting. Particularly if you don’t know what you want to do with your life. To help you out, I’ve thought of three cool careers to consider this year:
Social Media Guru
I’ve used the term ‘guru’ here because I’m going to cover a range of social media-related jobs. From social media manager to social media content creator. There are loads of careers available in this field, and it’s growing bigger by the day. A social media manager will focus on managing the social media accounts of a business. You’ll be in charge of ensuring everything is going as planned and you’re following a strategy. On the other end of the scale, a content creator will do just that; create content. You’ll compose tweets and come up with Facebook statuses for a company. It’s a job that requires a high degree of creativity and great writing skills. Careers in social media are very popular because it’s a new and exciting thing. There’s an increased importance on social media in the business world, so more and more people are hiring!
If you’ve got a passion for taking pictures, why not dive into the world of professional photography. It’s a great industry to go into because there’s plenty of work up for grabs. You can go down one of two routes, regarding finding work. You can be a freelance photographer and accept work when it comes. Or, you can sign with an agency or company and take pictures for them. Each of these has their benefits, you get more freedom as a freelancer, but a more secure job with an agency. The other cool thing about this career is that there are so many possibilities. Think about all the different things you could take pictures of. Become a sports photographer and travel the world taking pictures at big events. Or, be a wildlife one and experience nature from a new perspective. This may seem like an easy career, but it isn’t, believe me. You won’t understand the stress of professional photographers until you become one. It can be a fast paced job, and you need to act fast and ensure you get the best snaps possible. But, it’s fun and rewarding!

Becoming a graphic designer is a great career path for you to go down. Why? Because it’s a modern job, which is good! It’s good to choose a modern career because it means there will be plenty of work available. Graphic designers can do all sorts of things, from poster creation to web design, and everything in between. The best thing is, there will always be companies that need posters designed or websites improved. It’s a job that promises lots of work, whether you’re a freelancer or contracted to a single company. Of course, you need a creative mind and some top notch design skills to make it in this industry.
All three of these careers are perfect for people looking for work in 2016. They’re popular jobs so it shouldn’t be hard to find work available in these fields.
