Prepare now for the hottest jobs of the future

Get work-ready skills in as little as 10 weeks with Connect2Classes.

With technology changing at such a rapid rate, career planners and job seekers often wonder how to best prepare for the job market of the future. It’s common to gravitate towards lucrative jobs in the technology sector, digital marketing, support, and sales. According to research by Fast Company, the hottest jobs in 2025 will be tech-enabled, but require a range of skills.

  • Software developer jobs will grow 18.8% between now and 2024, while computer systems analyst jobs will increase 20.9% by 2024.
  • Market research analyst and marketing specialist jobs, which also require those analytical skills, will increase 18.6%.
  • Sales and related jobs are one of the top five growth areas worldwide. In the U.S., jobs for retail and other sales representatives, marketing specialists, and customer service representatives are each projected to grow between 6.4% and 18.6%, depending on the category by 2024.

Many career-focused people think that four-year degrees or graduate degrees like MBAs are necessary to get their foot in the door. But this is no longer the case – there are a variety of short-term training options that allow learners to build skills and a portfolio of work – getting them working quickly.

Connect2Classes has partnered with industry-grade organizations like the UW Foster School of Business, The School of Visual Concepts (SVC), General Assembly, The Effectiveness Institute, American Management Association, and The Project Management Academy. These providers deliver skills training to assist learners into their first job or into their next role.

Tech specialists can continue to improve their skill sets through courses in user experience (UX) or graphic design, user research and usability, information architecture and design, databases and data science, and project or product management.

While certain jobs require traditional programming skills, there are other other technical specialities including film and video editing, search engine optimization, digital marketing and social media management. Data analysis, storytelling, and content production are core skills that can benefit tech or knowledge workers.

Connect2Classes offers 10-week digital marketing courses, social media strategy, and an array of business skill workshops and bootcamps like communication, conflict resolution, and negotiation. For entrepreneurs and business leaders, building business plans, understanding franchising and consulting, accounting and taxes, as well as project and product management ensures a solid foundation for any great idea. Leadership and performance improvement are other great skills, offered by seasoned instructors from a variety of industries.
