I have chosen the following as the best careers to pursue in 2018, based on the experience required, the demand and the growth prospects.
I begin with digital marketing, based on the happening of digital age and with the emergence of social media platforms, such as Facebook, twitter etc. business opportunities abounds in this area, with the use of mobile phones and desktop as a medium of advertising. Grapping the opportunity, you are able to forge a career as a lead generator in content marketing.
I chose this business due it lowest entry barrier, you don’t require higher degrees to be in this career, the start-up capital as well is low, just either your mobile phone or desktop computer and a reliable internet connection.
A second career path I believe I would pursue in 2018 and beyond is operating a Daycare Centre. With the population growth of working parents, the prospects of making it in this career is high. Majority of working parents are bound to send their children (6 months to 5 years) to these Daycare Centres as they battle with daily work activities.
Although you can start with little say a one- bedroom house, but the future growth requires proper financial management, especially in infrastructure development to ensure the needed growth and expansion of the business.
Another career path I will pursue in 2018, which I believe has high prospect of growth and success, is in the restaurant or operating a food joint to serve the interest of the working population where I lived. This business requires little as a start-up capital and also one does not require to have a higher degree to quality to start this business.
On the other hand, the growth prospect is very high, as majority population, quest to avoid traffic during the rush hours (especially during the morning and evening) will resort to buying their foods in takeaway packs or eat them at restaurants.
In short, despite the challenges that come with these three careers paths, I believe the demands for them are very high and the prospects for growth beyond 2018 are high as well.
