Here's a good link for anyone curious about the job market the next decade. Of course, this targets some of the big trends. Look for the Boomers retiring and know that many professions will be aggressively recruiting. I'd also add that certain occupations always have many opportunities. Consider clergy and church work as one example since it's always a "sinner's market." :) Of course, with any vocation one needs to respond to their calling, their gifts, and the job they can do day-in and day-out that will put bread on the table!
