Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – The COVID-19 pandemic has had a major impact on the labor market. This of course makes everyone vying to find the job they want. As it turned out, there were a number of industries that had to suffer losses due to the impact of the pandemic, but there were also industries that experienced rapid growth.
The following is a list of the most needed jobs in 2022 as quoted by Forbes, Saturday (1/1/2021):
1. Technology and Information (IT)
The field of technology and information has never been absent from the list of the most sought after jobs in the future. After the pandemic, the phenomenon of the increasing number of remote workers and the development of smartphones has also increasingly pushed the need for experts in technology and information, such as software and app developers.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics The Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH) predicts that the software development field will experience a growth of 22 percent in the future. So, if you are planning to change careers in technology and information, you can start by taking online classes that are available.
2. Financial Management
Forbes said the need for workers in the financial management field will increase by 15 percent over the next 10 years. This field of work is tasked with checking company expenses and income as well as finding ways to maximize profits.
3. Health Workers
Not a few medical workers who fell ill and even died due to the Covid-19 pandemic. For this reason, the need for medical personnel is predicted to continue to increase in 2022.
Forbes noted, at least the need for health workers could reach more than 500 thousand by 2027. One of them is nurse practitioners who have earned master’s degrees, which will be in great demand in the future.
4. Supply Chain Management atau SCM
The next job that will experience rapid development in 2022 is SCM or supply management. The impact of panic buying (excessive buying in emergency situations) since the pandemic emerged, gave birth to a method of delivering goods to be on time.
Some of the jobs that fall into this field include Purchasing Agent, Logistics Analyst, and Distribution Manager. If you’re good at math, statistics, engineering principles and making efficient work systems, this could be the job.
5. Actuarial and Statistician
According to Forbes, the actuary profession will experience an increase in demand by up to 20 percent in the next 10 years. The actuary profession is usually in great demand in insurance companies.

Furthermore, the data scientist profession is also expected to experience demand growth of 30 percent by 2030. Usually statisticians and data experts are asked to analyze data and project sales, profits, and future growth barriers.
