For those currently in the process of job hunting, the market is working in your favor right now. There are plenty of job opportunities available. Representatives from the Michigan Department of Technology, Management, and Budget came together for a conference in Lansing on Tuesday. The event aimed to chart the course of the state’s employment landscape for the next seven years. Additionally, they’re working to ensure people know about the jobs currently in high demand.

Michigan’s Hot 50 and Career Outlook

Yesterday, the DTMB and the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity released two publications: Michigan’s Hot 50 and Michigan’s Career Outlook. Michigan’s Hot 50 brochure provides a comprehensive list of careers projected to have high demand and offer competitive wages, with the projections extending until 2030. This informative resource includes key details such as job titles, projected annual job openings, hourly wage ranges, insights into job growth, and the necessary education or training levels.

For people with a high school diploma and short-term training, several careers are expected to experience heightened demand over the next eight years. These careers include amusement and recreation attendants, animal caretakers, exercise trainers, group fitness instructors, bartenders, hosts, and hostesses.

On the other hand, for those with a bachelor’s degree or higher, the demand is projected to be strong for professions including general and operations managers, accountants, auditors, medical and health services managers, physician assistants, and industrial engineers.

Students and job seekers

The information gathered in these lists is valuable for students and job seekers. It assists them in making informed decisions about their future paths.

“It is our goal to provide our education and workforce partners with the information they need to help Michiganders find their path to high-demand, high-wage jobs,” Scott Powell, director of the Michigan Department of Technology, Management and Budget’s Bureau of Labor Market Information and Strategic Initiatives, said in a news release.
