5 Fastest Growing Industries for Remote Work [Find More Jobs & Get Hired Faster]

Within the last 2 to 3 years, work from
home has become the norm, with companies realizing that they can allow
their employees to work from anywhere and still make sure they get things done. And I know I've spoken about which jobs
and which companies are hiring right now for a work from home jobs, but
which industries are the fastest growing? Well, here are my top five
picks of industries where you can find remote jobs that pay between $800,000, sometimes up to $150,000 per year.

So let's dove in. Coming up in number one, we have financial technology or fintech,
as it is referred to by the experts. This industry has become extremely
lucrative in the last couple of years. In 2020 alone,
the industry received over $44 billion of investment globally
and half of that coming from the U.S. alone. I mean, that means over 14%
increase of investment since 2019 globally
and a jump of almost 30% in the U.S. alone. And given the uncertainty in the world,
having received and seeing that growth in 2020
is absolutely remarkable. And this makes it a great candidate
for remote jobs. This industry covers
particularly cryptocurrencies and Bitcoin, but also wealth management payment solutions as well as banking
and obviously Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies have been a very, very hot conversation
topic for the last couple of years. In this space, we have very well
established companies in the industry that you can absolutely start
looking into, like Abra and Coinbase. But also there are a lot of small
to medium companies that are growing really, really fast,
as I just mentioned, and that are probably very soon
going to become public. Okay, let's talk specifics.

What kind of skills do you actually need in order
to get a remote job in this industry? Well, because it is a technology
based industry, in my opinion. There are some technologies
that will really open the door for you. The first one that you should consider
is cloud technologies, cloud computing. That is an absolute must in my box,
and that if you're considering cryptocurrencies, for example,
then blockchain is an imperative, in my opinion.

Obviously, there are other technologies
that you can consider as well. And here I'm talking about security,
artificial intelligence, machine learning and even workplace technologies
and workplace analytics, because obviously they need
that kind of solutions as well. If you're at the beginning of your career and you're wondering,
how am I going to get hired? Or if you've maybe
just taken some courses in this area, will ideally look into
getting some certifications. And I'm going to link up here
and in the description down below a video that I made
where I talk about the best and most well-regarded certifications
in many of these technologies.

So make sure you go ahead and check
that out as soon as this video is over. All in all, given the skills gap
and the talent shortage, it shouldn't
be hard to get a job in fintech. These companies are dying to hire you. At number two, we have marketing,
especially digital marketing. And that is because 2021 marked a significant change
in the landscape of marketing and 2022 ushered a completely new era
when it comes to driving advertising in completely new ways,
using digital channels to really amplify
and disrupt that industry.

And that means that it has never been
a better time to specialize in digital marketing. All companies are investing
massively in marketing and even more so in digital marketing, and there are bright
opportunities for marketeers be that early in careers
or very experienced ones. In January 2022,
many digital marketing companies in the UK have been surveyed
and asked about their expectation when it comes to investments
in digital marketing that companies in the country
will be making. And their projection showed an expected
30% growth in digital marketing investments that companies in
the UK would be making throughout 2022.

And that means that no matter
if you're interested in content marketing, social media, email marketing
or any other kind of specialty in the space of digital marketing,
there will be tons of opportunity for you and not only in the UK because
that is a trend that we see globally. Now let's talk about some options
of remote jobs that you have in the space of digital marketing.

And obviously we can talk here
about social media and content marketing, but I want to touch upon
some that are not so intuitive, and one of them is web development,
and that is because marketers need well optimized and efficient websites
to run their campaign. So if you are interested in web development, then
definitely look into digital marketing because there will be tons of opportunity
for you. The next one that I want to talk about,
which is very connected to this previous one, is UX UI designer,
and that is because in the digital space we need people
who are really knowledgeable and capable in terms of understanding customers
experience and customer journey and then designing the interface
that the customer will be taken through. And the whole journey in the digital space
in a way that makes it not only pleasant but also successful
from a marketing perspective.

The third one that I want to touch upon
when it comes to digital marketing job options is video marketing. And that is because we see people
spending on average over 100 minutes every day
watching video content. Video is truly becoming the medium
for conveying marketing messaging. No matter if you are a video editor,
a script writer, a video producer, maybe there will be work for you
in the digital marketing space.

Another industry
that is worth mentioned in this video is retail and particularly e-commerce. And that is because over the last two years we've seen
many individuals turning to online shopping to fulfill their consumer
needs with fast Capital 3060 estimating that the online retail space is worth a whopping four and a half trillion dollars
and is only expected to grow from here. Amazon has also mentioned
that they've seen over 450,000 small businesses
taking advantage of their FBA offering. So fulfilled by Amazon and I've mentioned
this in many of my previous video, so I won't touch upon it again in terms of
what kind of jobs you can look into if you are interested in retail,
particularly e-commerce, there's a myriad of them
you can look into fulfillment jobs, which means that you will be in charge
of sourcing products and bringing them into warehouses from where they will be
shipped to consumers who order them.

You can look into category management,
which means that you will be working on making sure there is a good balance of
different products in certain categories and how they are merchandised and
how they are sold to the final consumers. You can look into product
design, for example, and I have a very good friend
who has a great product idea and is really keen
to find a talented product designer who would be able to bring her idea
to life.

And in fact, if you're interested
in this kind of career path, ideas will have incredible
training resources for you to learn from
and become a very strong product designer. Last but not least,
you should definitely consider marketing because all of the marketing related jobs
that I've mentioned in the previous chapter are still very relevant
when it comes to online retail. Coming up in number four, we have gaming,
which is a quiet leader in the entertainment space
and like many other industries, has seen an incredible growth
in the last two years with over 50 million Americans,
according to Morgan Stanley, having taken gaming
as a way to spend their time.

And this is a 31% year over year growth,
which compared to only 7% growth on average, which used to be
the case in the past, shows you that gaming is an absolutely incredible
opportunity to look into. And that is not only because we're seeing
more people playing more games and spending more time doing this,
but also because now there is an opportunity to compete
against each other and build communities and play globally, as well as the fact
that there is an increased opportunity for micro-transactions
and in-game purchases, which makes gaming such an attractive industry
for many, many players in this space. So if you are interested
and genuinely passionate about this area and this industry, there will be tons of opportunity
for you, starting with jobs like software developer,
because obviously that is a foundational type of role that
every kind of gaming company requires.

But then you can also think about jobs
like sound architect or story writer. By the way, if you're interested in me
creating a video where I talk more about the kind of jobs
that you can find in the gaming industry, do let me know in the comments down below
and also like this video. So I make sure I know you're interested in this
and then I will put it on my editorial calendar and I promise
it will be produced as soon as possible. Number five on our list is an industry
that might not be the first one you think of when it comes to remote jobs,
and that is health care and social services. And the reason why I wanted to mention
this is twofold. Number one is because this is the industry
that, according to BLS, is showing the highest growth
in terms of the number of jobs that are open and projected
to open over the next couple of years.

The second reason why I mentioned it is
because there are some opportunities and types of jobs that you can still do
remotely or from home, even though they might not be
the typical kind of work from home jobs
with a computer that you would imagine. So let's talk about why
this is such a great opportunity. Well, Beatles are explaining
that over the next few years there will be over 2 million jobs
that will be open in the industry of health
care and social services in the U.S. alone. And a few reasons for
that are not only the increasing number of people with chronic illnesses
that will need more and more help, but also because of the aging baby boomers
that it will require more care as well as the extended
or increased life expectancy. So over the next few years, health care
and especially social services, will be an area
that will be looking to hire massively. And if you are a health care
professional already, or if you are interested in becoming one,
then there will be opportunities for you to work remotely because there will be lots of jobs
that are coming up in terms of individual and family care services,
in terms of outpatient care or even home
care for this kind of patients.

Thank you guys so much for watching. Let me know in the comments below
which of the five industries was most appealing to you? Also, until next time,
make sure you go ahead and watch this video over here

that you absolutely must consider if you're looking for jobs, especially
in technology or the marketing space. Thank you again for watching
