While there’ll always be some people who have known their future career path since they were small (hello medics and lawyers), it’s completely OK if you’re one of the many who doesn’t have a clue as to what job you’re best suited for or would like to do in the future. If you’re fairly relaxed about what field you’ll work in, or haven’t given it much thought yet, here’s a closer look at some of the fastest-growing industries around the world, all of which feature great wages and high job prospects. Information comes from projections by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Digital marketing and communications = ca-ching!

In an age where social media, user experience and community engagement can make or break a business, digital is more important than ever.

Speaking of the internet…cyber security is really big

Cyber security seems to always be in the spotlight at the moment, whether it's a story about data breaches or election hacking. Unfortunately, cyber crime isn't just limited to these areas: cyber criminals pose a risk to everyone and every organisation, meaning that staff with the skills to fight back are increasingly in demand.
Macquarie’s Master of Cyber Security brings together studies in risk, IT, finance, law, governance and policing, providing you with a multidisciplinary skill set that will enable you to lead more effective responses to security challenges. Students also benefit from the university’s close collaboration with the telecommunications brand Optus and other major companies at the Optus Macquarie University Cyber Security Hub.

Unsurprisingly, the healthcare industry will always need talented graduates

Ageing populations coupled with the constant development of new medicine and medical technologies mean there will always be a demand for graduates to work in healthcare. In fact,
most new job openings for graduates with a master’s degree over the next decade will be in health care, whether it’s as a nurse practitioner, physician, surgeon, dentist or general practitioner. So, there should be plenty of roles for you to move into after graduation.

The Macquarie MD (Doctor of Medicine) includes extended international clinical experiences for all students, as the university recognizes the need for future doctors to be globally engaged clinicians.
The Macquarie MD has been developed to be a dynamic, future-focused program that produces competent, professional graduates who put the patient at the centre of all they do while nurturing a passion for lifelong learning and fresh thinking about the challenging health issues of our time.
