  • Development trend: There are hot jobs at the moment, but there is a risk of being eliminated or reducing recruitment demand and saturation in the future. The salaries of the industries that catch up with the development trend will be higher than the fields that are at risk of being replaced by machines and technology.
  • Competence of employees: As with any profession, if you are really outstanding, you will have the ability to compete. In fact, external objective factors are only a part. The subjective factors, which are the qualifications and skills of the workers, will determine the level of income.
