Well Paid Jobs For Youths Today

I was just browsing as I always do and I stumbled upon a video clip titled "get a job" after watching it, I realized that the craze for not only getting a job but the highest paying is driving most of the youths nuts!

Probably, after reading something on the internet they believe they can hit it big immediately they engage in what they see others doing without knowing what's behind the struggle (I love their faith! It can bring the change we need).

As youths, career guidance and advice can help shape their decisions and actions to having a rewarding and competitive career that is in line with the demands of the industry.
Then I asked myself What are the hottest jobs for youths in this century?
So after a little research, I came up with some fast growing and high paying Jobs for Youths.

The list below shows in no particular order the jobs that are the fastest-growing and highest-paying currently and a little description about them. Note that it may change overtime:

1. Software Developers:- this one in particular is in serious demand in Nigeria today. These people design computer programs and softwares and also develop them. Their pay is very high and most of them earn hourly.

2. Market Research Analysts and Marketing Specialists:- You can find these people on every job board. They study market conditions in local, regional, or national areas and use their findings for whatever. Trust me, their pay is something.

3. Training and Development Specialists:- these people are psychologists who chose to specialize. They help to design and conduct training and development programs. You can imagine their pay from what they do.

4. Financial Analysts:- these ICAN people have always been in demand.
They simply assess the performance of stocks, bonds, and other types of investments. *smacks lips* not going to talk about their pay 'cause I feel jealous already.

5. Physical Therapists:- they help patients who have injuries or illnesses manage their pain. I have always wanted to be a doctor but I ran when I knew I had to deal with sick people! Now I am kinda regretting that decision because I am missing a fat pay! If you even own your own clinic now its triple the pay (or more).

6. Web Developers:- I think this group should be topping my list. They create websites and help companies build a brand. Do you know how many people are in need of websites daily? Come on! If you know your job and target the right people you will be swimming lightly.

7. Logisticians:- their name is so professional you will actually think they are always being logical! These are the supply chain managers who make sure that the Company delivers to you! They analyze and coordinate the supply chain of an organization. And I tell you, you don't need to doubt what they get.

8. Database Administrators:- hmmmmmmm!!! These are the code gurus! I always see smoke coming out of their head whenever I see them! They use software to store and organize data, such as financial information and customer shipping records. They are in high demand today in schools, hospitals, companies, banks etc. I tell you, these people are getting it.

9. Meeting, Convention and Event Planners/Managers:- These people plan anything these days. Including a thanksgiving reception! They simply organize meetings and events almost on daily basis because meetings or events are held daily. They determine their pay as long as they know how to deliver.

10. Interpreters and Translators: as odd as this one sounds, people pay handsomely to interpreters! Especially foreign companies. They simply convert information from one language to another to improve communication. I am thinking of getting one myself.

11. Lawyers:- after your long stay in school, and your call to bar, you will understand why I added you to my list! These people are really the ones eating people's money today. You simply can't do most things without one.

12. Petroleum Engineers:- The name alone speaks money! If you are into this please drop your contact I want to speak with you (hehehehehehehe). These group of engineers design and develop methods for extracting oil and gas from deposits below the earth’s surface. Cool right? Yeah! Their pay is breath taking.

13. Information Security Analysts:- are you thinking of how to secure your information online or your website? try reaching these people (after I do). They make sure you’re not hacked! Your online stuffs are secured if you have them around your website. They plan, implement, upgrade, or monitor security measures for the protection of computer networks and information. Do you want to argue about their pay?

14. Customer Service Representative:- whether you are a representative of a company, bank, network or service provider etc. You will surely get a good pay just for talking and listening to people.

15. SOCIAL WORKERS:- I must not fail to add this to the list. And I must lay lots of emphasis on it. In case you haven't heard, SOCIAL WORKERS are those people who "help" give people's life a meaning. We (yes WE) are the people who succeed where doctors and lawyers fail (no offense). That smiling lady who took your child away from you as a result of neglect is a SOCIAL WORKER! That person who stepped in when you were almost thrown out by your husband's family is a SOCIAL WORKER! That person who sat down to listen to you pour out your heart when the doctor's pills weren't helping is a SOCIAL WORKER! The examples are endless but just know that we are there for everyone. Our satisfaction isn't in the pay but in your smile! So I dare say we are the highest paid!

I think that's the end of the list for now.
The need for the above people are rapidly increasing and it will do you good if you have knowledge in one or more of the above fields.
Ferguson said "In addition to higher pay levels and solid growth rates, what many of these jobs have in common is a talent shortage,"
So I suggest you grab the opportunity of training yourself now before there is surplus talent and less demand!
I will love to know which you are interested in, so just drop a comment below.
And Petroleum Engineers, don't forget to drop your contacts *winks*


  1. We absolutely love your blog and find many of your post's to be just what I'm looking for.
    Do you offer guest writers to write content in your
    case? I wouldn't mind creating a post or elaborating on most of the
    subjects you write related to here. Again, awesome web site!Next thing is,
    never install the software on the affected drive as there are chances that you would overwrite
    the data and loose it permanently. To further complicate matters, your entire workforce likely uses mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets to access the network or check email.
    They will sync copies of files you place in certain directories automatically.
