So if what you love to do, does not appear on this list what should you do? First, don't fall trap to statistics. While these may be "hot" jobs, it does not mean that there is no need for other skill sets. Follow your passion. Money will follow. Don't ask, "Will I find a job?" Ask, "Will I be able to advance the vision and mission of a company or organization?' Ask, "What are my skill sets? What can I do that will wow others?" That is the way to have a job and even if you lose your job, you will find your way to the top quickly!
