21st Century Career Trends

The world is growing into a realm of never-ending and often self-destructive complexities. Since its origin, livelihood has been based on survival, money, growth and exploitation. Man has engaged and flourished in various roles through the centuries and build up an atmosphere capable of more ingenuity. Careers have undergone a rapid upward graph for themselves, inventing and reinventing newer opportunities and horizons.
The 20th century was highlighted by the information technology boon and brain drain. These are slowly receding as a result of public policies by governments to nurture their native talent. The prospective CEO and other managerial positions seem to be continuing with a decaying growth. Other positions binding the world as a combined conlegium and attending to the call of world’s problems will seem to be at the front. Networking, Web-technology and intensive software testing will hold the fort. Some trends:
Philanthropists: These classes of people donate their time, money, and/or reputation to charitable causes and make a major impact through their volunteering, such as a person who manages a philanthropic organization. J.K. Rowling is, for instance, a philanthropist advocating social equity and president of One Parent Families. Bill Gates is another example.
Global Activists: As a part of World organizations such as the United Nations’ UNESCO, there will be a class of people
E-commerce CEO - This position is in the greatest demand at pre-IPO companies that are starting to generate revenue and brand. E- Commerce is a successful business network with biggies such as paypal, yahoo, ewise etc, operating efficiently.
Human Resources Department- a whole new potential in this field because of the immense globalization.
Global Network Architects - With telecommuting on the rise and the high demand for sharing and accessibility to data, the person who understands the connection on both the local, wide and global fronts will be in most demand.
Financial trade analysts will have a key role in assessing the twists and turns in complexities of growth and innovation in the 21st century.
