Job satisfaction is high in which trade?

One of those few questions we refuse to answer. Singapore believes that there is a chance for job satisfaction in every industry, from accounting and banking and finance to entertainment and beauty. Everything depends on how you envision your career to move and be like and your overall mindset in life. The show is yours, the industry is just the stage. Are you currently job hunting? Don't hesitate to send out copies of your CV to companies in the industry that you really like. There's no such thing as a dead end industry when it comes to job satisfaction and career progress.

You're responsible for your own career. We're not fans of cliches, but we can't help but include this here because it defines our point very well. The industry is not the one going to bring you to success boulevard -- it's only a tool and everything depends on whether you put it to good use or not.

Competition is high? Well, in every industry, competition is tough. But you shouldn't be discouraged. Instead, take this as a personal challenge. How can you make yourself stand out in a sea of equally-talented professionals? Establish a personal brand, that's one strategy. You can attend career seminars about job hunting too, if you like. There are also a lot of articles about resume writing and acing job interviews online that you can read and follow. It's all up to you.

How can an industry give you job satisfaction if it isn't even hiring? Good point. But, the industry is just the stage, remember? You're welcome to explore other stages. There are many industries that hire professionals of varying expertise: for instance, the hospitality industry also hires accounting professionals in the forms of cashiers and accounts executives and the field of computers hires writers too. Another example is the telecommunications field which also hires engineers aside from support executives. But well, this isn't something you should be worried about. Surveys and studies are bearing the same results: the balance of power is swinging back to job seekers. Majority of our industries here are pretty much in good shape.
