As a PR major there is a lot in common with marketing. Both you need very good communication and creative skills to be successful in these careers. Seeing the poster “What Will Be The 10 Most In-Demand Jobs In 2020” there is not any communication jobs or PR jobs however there is marketing specialist, which is comforting to see at least that. In the next coming years the competition for jobs will get fiercer. To be successful you will need to be well versed in communicating, problem solving, negotiation and many other skills just to land a job.
According to the “Today’s Hot Jobs” post, finance is number nine on the list. As a finance major, I have a great outlook on what the job market will look like when I graduate. Based off the Guthrie Jensen poster, I can see many attributes and skills that apply to Marketing majors can apply to finance majors. I could see myself dipping into the marketing field, but I feel I am better suited for the major I chose because I enjoy math problems and money management.
While a lot of these skills are extremely good to have and will help you to succeed in the realm of business especially in 2020, there is nothing really new about them. These skills are important in today’s world as well and some might say that you could fall below the bar without them.
They’re new to you! 🙂
Let’s bring this post back to life given we are headed into 2020. The predications from the infographic with data analysis at the forefront seem to be true. However, I’d probably place software developers higher than customer service reps and sales and marketing specialist. It is interesting in the course of 3 years we have made significant strides in renewable energy and AI but we definitely have a ways to go.
