The United States has a wide variety of industries that need talented workers who have specific knowledge and skills in those fields. The technology industry has experienced unprecedented growth over the past two decades and is the fastest growing field in the country. Agriculture is a stable industry that often has job openings. And entertainment is another thriving industry, offering unique work amid steady demand for television shows and films.
As technology becomes more and more integrated into our life and society, more and more competent workers are needed. Whether it's programming, entering data for website or databases or working in a factory, more and more high-tech are jobs available every year, encouraging workers to refocus their abilities. Continuing-education classes to learn new technological skills may be necessary for some.
U.S. agriculture is an enormous industry, producing much of the nation's food and fiber, ranging from processed foods to the booming organic food market. Jobs available in this sector range from building the tractors and machines that farmers use to the science and chemistry of what makes crops grow to being a farmer. Varying degrees of formal education are required.
An industry that first truly boomed in the United States, entertainment always has job openings for creative and business-minded people in a wide range of capacities. From lawyers to artists to teamsters, the entertainment business employs just about every skill set to bring imagination and stories to television, the movies and now even cell phones. While the hubs of the entertainment industry are Los Angeles and New York City, the technological revolution has made creating your own entertainment easier than ever, allowing those with the necessary skills to work from just about anywhere.
