My niece just started her career as a repiratory therapist - very high in demand, as is anything else respiratory related.

Anything dealing with the elderly/gerontology - from social work, occupational therapy, etc.

Trades...specifically plumbing, electrician and house reno contractors...
I actually thought about trades ... I wasn't sure how easily I can get a job because I'm hearing impaired (I wear hearing aids) ... if employers see me as a liability for safety situations.

Honestly if there's something easy to learn, and pays well. Everybody would jump on that. Unfortunately easy to learn and high paying jobs are outside of major cities.

Find something you like. You seem to be picky about everything.

Getting a job would be easier if you are a coder but if you really want to earn a lot, its better to have coding as a skill and you should do some other majors.

From my perspective

- Data Science. Its been few decades that clients (end users) have started to use online store, now its high time to make their stored data meaningful. As long as you have data science under your belt, you can do lot better in multiple fields (marketing, finance etc)
- Health Informatics: there will be lot of innovation in health field in near feature, right time to get into it
- Machine Learning/Deep Learning/AI: Everything ... everything will depend on it. It will become more of a commodity and anyone who has more girp on these subjects will be high in demand
