Securing a good income makes it far easier for you to be able to successfully save up enough for a secure future. If you are currently working a low paid job it is well worth taking the time to train for a role that will take your income up by several notches. Here are a few suggestions.
Become a personal injury lawyer
There are plenty of personal injury lawyers in the Freeport area – see the link for an example. In fact, you will find them in most places. Including, relatively small towns.
Unfortunately, accidents are not uncommon. This is despite the best efforts of governments, who have legislated heavily to make everywhere safer.
Yet, according to the statistics, most drivers will have at least 2 vehicle accidents in their lifetime. Plus, the majority of us will suffer at least 1 serious slip and fall incident and several other mishaps. So, you can safely say (no pun intended) that there will always be plenty of demand for the services of personal injury lawyers.
If you do not have the time, patience, or capability to study for a law degree, don’t worry. Just take on another role within the industry. Lawyers need secretaries, receptionists, bookkeepers, researchers, and investigators to run their business. So, there are plenty of ways to get involved in the sector.
Learn to code
According to the latest statistics, at any point in time, around 700,000 IT-related jobs are sitting there waiting to be filled and that is just in the USA. You will find a similar picture in every country.
Interestingly, many of those vacancies are for junior positions. Jobs that do not require applicants to have a long list of qualifications or any experience of working in IT.
The industry is so worried about their ability to fill these roles that they are willing to take on people who have gone through hothouse or Bootcamp training. They know that provided you have a basic understanding of how to code you will be able to learn fast when they set you to work as part of a more experienced team. Salaries start at around $40,000 a year. But, after just a few years most people easily double that.
Become an online marketer
If you want to succeed in business, you need to have an online presence. The vast majority of people turn to the web when they need something. So, there are millions of companies out there looking for good online marketing services. You can easily learn how to provide them with what they need.
There is no need to get any formal qualifications, you can learn by taking some online training and setting up your own website. Plus, you can start by doing the work in the evenings. Allowing you to build up a client base before giving up your day job. You can find out more about the industry and how to get started in it, by clicking here.
Making the switch to one of the above careers is attainable for most people. Some will be able to acquire the necessary knowledge in just a few months, while others will take several years to do so. But, with demand and salaries in those sectors being so high the time spent acquiring that knowledge can be looked upon as a sound investment.
