It’s official: Donald Trump will be getting a new job in 2017.
However, he doesn’t have to be the only one. Here are a few occupations with a healthy outlook for the future if you are also considering a new job for the New Year.
Occupational Health and Safety Technician
Every employee at a company counts on Occupational Health and Safety Technicians to be on the lookout for unsafe procedures and working conditions. Safety workers gather information, analyze data, conduct tests and assess hazards to help prevent workers, property, the environment and the public from injury or damage.
For instance, they might examine machinery to ensure that it isn’t showing signs of wear that could lead to serious injury. They also might make sure workers are doing their jobs ergonomically in order to avoid repetitive motion injuries.
While all Occupational Health and Safety Technicians work to keep people and the environment safe, their duties can vary widely depending on the industry they are in and the company they are at. These workers do typically work at a manufacturing or industrial facility, as office-based work places typically don’t present enough hazards to require a full-time health and safety position.
Certified Nursing Assistant
With a significant portion of the US population getting old, the outlook for careers in healthcare looks extremely rosy. The prospects of Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) look particularly good, according to recent labor analyses.
The job of a CNA is to offer basic medical care to patients and help them with day-to-day activities they might have a problem doing on their own, like bathing or using the bathroom. Due to the personal nature of the job, CNAs should be caring and enjoy serving others. In long-term care facilities, a CNA is usually a patient’s only caregiver.
In the course of a typical day, CNAs will work with medical devices and digital medical records. In some organizations, a CNA will dispense medication to patients, but this generally is dependent upon the CNA’s degree of training and experience, along with state rules.
Claims adjusters are generally employed by insurance companies to investigate property damage and figure out how much someone filing a claim should be compensated. Claims adjusters can asses anything from a house to a company or a car.
Adjusters must travel to visit the damaged property and gather information on what led to the damage. They might examine police reports, interview witnesses, research similar incidents or talk to experts in order to better comprehend the claim.
Adjusters also consider any photo, video and audio evidence, as well as interviews and on-site evidence to produce a report for claim examiners.
While the overwhelming majority of claims adjusters work for insurance firms, some work as independent contractors.
