The employment landscape is constantly shifting. While agricultural jobs played a big role in the 19th century, a large portion of jobs today are in administration, sales, or transportation, and this is changing rapidly. As the composition of employment shifts, it eliminates some jobs and creates others. For instance, while production jobs are declining, new opportunities exist for computer numerically controlled tool programmers. These workers develop programs to control the automated equipment that processes materials. However, while many of the fastest growing jobs are higher paying, they typically also require advanced education.
Here are the top 20 fastest growing jobs in the world.
