Where are the Jobs: Industry Growth Edition advises jobseekers to “follow the jobs” and target their employment search towards industries poised for growth during the next few months. Here are the high-growth areas:

  • High Tech—new technologies provide opportunities for computer programmers, analysts, program managers, and project managers.
  • Human Resources—growing companies and new companies enlarge their HR staff to deal with recruiting, interviews, hiring, training, and compliance concerns.
  • Management—previous management responsibilities can help you land any number of civilian management jobs such as supply-chain manager, marketing manager, and finance manager.
  • Federal Government—do not overlook Uncle Sam as a potential employer. The United States government is hiring. In fact, almost every federal agency is hiring for a wide variety of positions.
  • Health Care—there is a growing demand for health care professionals due to a flurry of new laws and health care reform. Rapid growth in the elderly population is a major factor in the demand for workers in this field.
  • Education— don’t confine your search to teaching positions. There are ample prospects for training instructors at private institutes, vocational training centers, and online classes.

Government Jobs

As mentioned above, the federal government is predicted to be one of the largest employers going forward. In fact, the government is not only offering more employment opportunities but also a better quality of employment than some other employers. The civil service exam has been eliminated and approximately half the new hires under President Obama’s administration began their employment at salaries higher than $100,000 a year.

Similar to the military, the government is able to provide employment opportunities in almost every industry due to the wide range of activities the federal government has a hand in.
