6/14/13: The # 1 Job Skill in 2020

Greetings from the Association of Employment Professionals

Here's a Linked-In article by George Anders that highlights fast growing occupations and the skills that these occupations will require.  It's probably not what most of us might guess.  Read on:

THE #1 JOB SKILL IN 2020

What's the crucial career strength that employers everywhere are seeking -- even though hardly anyone is talking about it? A great way to find out is by studying the list of fast-growing occupations, as compiled by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Sports coaches and fitness trainers. Massage therapists, registered nurses and physical therapists. School psychologists, music tutors, preschool teachers and speech-language pathologists. Personal financial planners, chauffeurs and private detectives. These are among the fields expected to employ at least 20% more people in the U.S. by 2020.

Did you notice the common thread? Every one of these jobs is all about empathy.

 


SAVE THE DATE!  Our annual Best Practices Summit will be held on Tuesday, September 17th, 2013.  Look for more information on speakers and workshops soon!!
