( Whether you’re considering branching out into a new career or you’re looking to enter the field of work for the first time, it’s good to think about the type of industry you want to get into. No matter where you’re located in the world, you’ll be able to choose from a wide variety of industries – each differing in what they do, how much they pay and the skills/education that are needed.

But if you’re stuck for inspiration as to which industry to enter or you’re uninterested by the stereotypical jobs out there, then this could be difficult. To help guide you, here are 4 extraordinary industries you could work within:

  • Robotics 

The future of the global robotics industry looks bright. Currently worth billions of dollars and expected to grow exponentially as technology continues to evolve, it has plenty of unique careers within it, from electro-mechanical technicians to computer programmers. But despite the projected growth and the demand for more jobs, it’s quite a difficult industry to enter.

Not only does it involve interdisciplinary experience within electronic, mechanical, electrical and computer science but it also has specific education requirements. These typically are a bachelor’s degree in engineering, along with a master’s degree or doctorate.

  • Energy 

The energy industry is yet another industry that’s growing by the minute. Why? Because the world’s energy demand is ever increasing. Due to this demand, it can be an exciting and unique industry to work within – especially if you work within renewable energy. With more and more people wanting to invest in solar energy, biofuels and wind energy, it could be a very profitable career.

  • Zoology 

One of the most interesting industries to enter is zoology. Ideal for those who love animals, the day-to-day routine of a zoologist will involve studying animals and their behavior – in either the wild of captivity. Although the median salary of this role is around $60,000, it can be a very rewarding career. 

To get into it, entry-level positions will typically require a bachelor’s degree, either in general biology, ecology, wildlife biology or zoology specifically. 

  • Aviation/Aerospace

Although these two industries are often confused, there are clear definitions that separate them. Aerospace is the study of engineering, science and business to fly an aircraft in the atmosphere of Earth or surrounding space. 

Organizations within this industry research, design, manufacture and maintain either aircraft or spacecraft. The most common metals used in aircraft construction are aluminum, magnesium, titanium, steel, and their alloys. Often fiberglass reinforcment is needed, to make sure such a powerful aircraft runs smoothly. An industry that’s getting more and more innovative and exciting (, for example, showcases how 3D printing is being used), it typically requires both a bachelor’s degree in aerospace engineering, along with a masters degree

Aviation on the other hand refers to the activities that surround the aircraft industry and mechanical flight. Although it’s similar in the fact that you could take on a role that helps manufacture the aircraft, it can also involve roles such as a systems engineer, a pilot or an air hostess. 

Final Thoughts

So, there you go! Those are 4 extraordinary and profitable industries that you could work within. The career path you go down, of course, is up to you. But whichever you choose, you’re bound to have an exciting and rewarding career that you appreciate for many years to come.
