What Will Our Children Be Doing in 10 Years?

What jobs will our student’s be looking to apply for in the next 10 years? Many jobs they will have in ten years seem very Star Trek like in scope to us today. However, this is our children's future and we need to keep in mind we are preparing them for these jobs in a time of exponential advancements and growth regarding technology.

The E-learning 3.0 Blog posted an article on the Top 60 Jobs That Will Rock the Future, which was republished With Permission from

These job titles are amazing and I can definitely see career choices for our students. Here are some of my favorites to check out on the list:

Space Tour Guide – now we know Space Travel is going to be expensive. Probably what cruising was in the early 20th century. This definitely seems like a career choice for the child that loves science and has an adventurous spirit.

Simulation Engineer – working on a full size 3D halloseck everyday in your organization to solve problems and instructional designs. Now how cool would this be for our students?

Ecotourism Travel Guide - Okay so Space is not your child’s thing, then this one might be. Responsible vacationing - “responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment and improves the well-being of local people.”

Mobile Application Developer – Definitely a job of the future – who does not use these on their phone?

Welding Technologist – job of the past becomes a major career trend in the future! Nice to see that things including jobs and types come around again.

Virtual Services Worker - conduct sales and offer a friendly personal voice, without ever leaving home.

As educators we need to look at our children and what their future holds for them. Ten years is not that far away. We need to help prepare them for their dreams and job market they will be entering.
