How times have changed! Technology have infiltrated our kids lives most of the time for the better. So have careers. Thanks to technology a bounty of new careers not in existence ten years ago, were slowly created. That’s why we need to educate our kids and make sure that they are aware of the vast world of opportunities constantly evolving. Let’s help them discover the interesting career avenues that are constantly being invented and re-invented. At Best For Kids we investigated some of these interesting careers.



It’s becoming obvious to many futurists that past trends may no longer be a reliable indicator of future job prospects. According to futuristic predictions, this is the trend – it’s OUT with repetitive work and middlemen and IN with creative work requiring lots of common sense and working with people. Constant change and adaptation will be required.  The really good news is that opportunity has never been more rife.

You can check these out here for more information but we have summarised it below.


3-D Printing

3D printing or additive manufacturing is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file. The creation of a 3D printed object is achieved using additive processes. In an additive process an object is created by laying down successive layers of material until the object is created. 3D printing is changing the way we produce objects, from tools and toys, to food, and even body parts.

Doctors 3D-print ‘living’ body parts. Custom-made, living body parts have been 3D-printed in a significant advance for regenerative medicine, say scientists. The sections of bonemuscle and cartilage all functioned normally when implanted into animals.


Food printing

So, how does a Food printer engineer or even Food printer Chef sound as a job title?

The future of the food industry could be getting really exciting, you might need to throw all your food recipes away and look at this new exciting trend. This new phenomenon has many benefits with a simple push of a button you can create your wildest food dreams. At home as well as manufacturing and the restaurant industry…..


3D food printing offers a range of potential benefits. It can be healthy and good for the environment because it can help to convert alternative ingredients such as proteins from algae, beet leaves, or insects into tasty products. It also opens the door to food customization and therefore tune up with individual needs and preferences.

Privacy Manager                               

A Privacy Manager develops, implements, and enforces policies and procedures of a company’s privacy programs in accordance with security laws. They ensure that all business processes and data exchanges adhere to the policies and procedures. Directs, delivers or ensures delivery of confidential and privacy trainings. These managers also provides input to strategic decisions that affect the functional area of responsibility and may give input into developing the budget. They should be capable of resolving escalated issues arising from operations and requiring coordination with other departments. Typically requires 3+ years of managerial experience.



Nanotechnology is the manipulation of matter on an atomicmolecular, and supramolecular scale. Nanomedicine is a branch of medicine that applies the knowledge and tools of nanotechnology to the prevention and treatment of diseases. It involves the use of nanoscale materials, such as biocompatible nenoparticles and nanorobots for diagnosis, deliver, sensing or actuation purposes in a living organism.

Nanomedicine sits on the cutting edge and is likely to grow considerably over the next few years. Nanomedicine combines technology, science and medicine, enabling us to understand and treat many diseases.

It’s a role that will place you in the lab on most days, developing your own ideas and technologies. But a degree within the field of Nanomedicine won’t necessarily restrict you to such a career should you decide that it isn’t for you. Such is the nature of Nanomedicine. You could equally fit into a number of government organisations, or even end up within a higher managerial role within a variety of healthcare industries.


Professional Triber

Related to Codrington’s personal worker brand coaches and managers will be the role of what he calls the “professional triber,” says Joe Tankersley, a futurist and strategic designer at Unique Visions. Tankersley says that as more companies rely on on-demand workers, the role of a professional triber–a freelance professional manager that specializes in putting teams together for very specific projects–will be in demand.

Drone Dispatcher

A Drone Dispatcher specializes in drone photography, video and mapping from a distance.

More recently, “drone” has evolved into a catchall term including any unmanned robot either pre-programmed or remotely controlled. This includes robots designed for water, land, and air use. The most common drone is an aerial one, either an RPA (remote piloted aircraft) or UAV (unmanned/unpiloted aerial vehicle.)

To the military, they are UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) or RPAS (Remotely Piloted Aerial Systems). However, they are more commonly known as drones. Drones are used in situations where manned flight is considered too risky or difficult.


Instant Quick Freeze Operator 

In the food, meat, fruit and vegetable processing industry, the most important thing is to keep the finished product fresh for a long time. Instant quick freezing technology is used to preserve foods because they are frozen fast at a very low temperature. All the water is withdrawn from the cells of the food so that no bacteria remains. All the natural characters of the fresh food are retained.

There are three traditional types of freezers used:

Plate freezer: The product you want to freeze is placed between two alluminium freezer plates in the freezing machine and removed when frozen.

Tunnel freezer: The tunnel freezer travels horizontally through a large enclosed compartment and cold air is circulated upward through the product.

Spiral Freezer: The spiral freezer operates based energy saving principal of horizontal airflow. The intelligent airflow guarantees especially quick freezing and ensures good product quality with the lowest loss of liquid after thawing.

3D Freezers used the latest fast freezing technology fast 3D flash freezers are the fastest freezers on the market. Ingredients are kept fresh after being frozen with little loss of the original moisture texture or flavour and freezing of cooked products is also made possible.


Information Security Manager 

The war between data defenders and data thieves has been described as a cat-and-mouse game. As soon as the white hats counter one form of black-hat malicious behaviour, another malevolent form rears its ugly head. How can the playing field be tilted in our favour? Here are five emerging security technologies that may be able to do that.


App Developer

Why become an app developer? Check the palm of your hand (or maybe in the couch cushions) for the answer. The proliferation of mobile technology is driving demand for development of new applications of all kinds, from news and games to music and social sharing. Systems software developers, who create the operating systems for computers and mobile devices, are also poised for prosperity.

We hope you are inspired in order to be inspirational to your children opening up their minds for so many possibilities. Happy career hunting!
