If you need some more ideas about what Peru needs to keep up with future changes, here are 5 more careers not yet taught in Peru’s universities and tech schools.

In our last future careers article we listed a range of careers from farm-to-table chefs to drone pilots. What do they have in common? They are not taught in Peru’s higher education facilities. This means opportunity and room to grow. Here are 5 more of these future careers you want to keep your eye on.

1.  Digital Archaeologists: This one has nothing to do with actual archaeology. It’s all about digging up information on the internet that could be harmful to an organization or person and deleting it. Is there any politician in Peru that doesn’t need one of these?

2. Environmental Health Nurses: These professionals specialize in allergies and sicknesses that can be caused by our work and living spaces. They help prevent us from getting sick by creating healthier environments – and prevention costs less than reaction in the long run.

3. Head Hunter: This isn’t as scary as it sounds. Rather, a head hunter is quite useful as they specialize in bringing talent into your business. It’s not just about talent either, these people know how to find the person who fits just right for a job opening – making social and work relations within the company as effective as they can be.

4. Growth Hacker: Internet presence means so much these days, and it is becoming just as indispensable in Peru as anywhere else. These professionals ensure that a company or organization continues to become more connected and reach more people in the virtual reality. Let’s face it, the internet’s presence in our lives seems less “virtual” and more “reality” every day.

5. Video Game Experts: Video games are just beginning to make headway to a widespread audience in Peru. As the economy grows this sector is sure to grow even more. Peru even has its own E-Sports League team that competes internationally. There is a world of opportunity here as video game culture is slowly but surely catching on in the Andean country.

Are you inspired? Peru definitely has its challenges in both political and daily life matters, but there is so much that is great about this country. Peru has an extremely challenging and diverse geography to work with, but within every challenge is an opportunity to be innovative and build a sustainable future for the country.

These careers of the future are not yet taught in Peru, so why not be a pioneer? You could even be the teacher.
