    Wouldn't it be great to know which jobs will see growing demand in the future? It sure would help with planning a career change, or even with picking a college major.

    Turns out, you don't need a crystal ball to find out. Every two years, researchers at the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics create a new 10-year forecast detailing the specific occupations the government expects will grow and shrink over the coming decade. The 2008-2018 projections came out in December.

    The new data is especially valuable because it includes the first year of the current economic downturn (2008). The new Occupational Outlook Handbook, which went up on the BLS Web site in mid-December, provides a first look at how specific jobs may recover -- or not -- over the next eight years.

    1. Biomedical engineer
    2. Financial examiner
    3. Medical scientist (excluding epidemiologists)
    4. Physician assistant
    5. Biochemist/biophysicist
    6. Skin-care specialist
    7. Athletic trainer

    Biomedical engineer seems cool. It's like a combination of engineer in medical field or the other way around.

    Great list with a lot of food for thought, for anyone considering long term career options. It's interesting to see that so many of those jobs are in some way related to people's health and wellbeing.

    Possibly accountancy. Accountants have sometimes been described as recession proof. they are often kept busy handling liquidations and dealing with financial restructuring when times are difficult.

    I heard that jobs related to environmental are bight in the future.
    Especially those environmental engineer, a very high pay job in the future.
    And with all those recent catastrophes like earthquake and tsunami, environmental has become
    one of the most seek topic lately.:)
