Below are some of the fields with the best openings.
Since technology is ever changing and ever improving, IT jobs are in high demand. Computer analysts are a commodity to any business that uses technology for communication purposes as well as to run their day to day operations. Networking and communication fields offer entry-level work for those who have just graduated and on the job training. Support personnel for help desks and other trouble shooting positions are also in high demand.
In spite of, or maybe because of, the recent banking crises, those who have majored in the finance department are in high demand. Skilled accountants are necessary for keeping accurate records of sales and other business ventures. Many companies are looking for sale agents to help boost their business and gain new customers.
Sales and marketing
Every business has a marketing department. These are the people who work hard to get a business in the public eye. Along with that they also need sale professionals who can sell advertisement space or any product the business offers. Sales professionals and marketers have to be people persons. As with financial services, commission is a large part of compensation in this field. The more people you talk to, effectively, the more money you will make. Since not everyone can sell a product, this is a skill set in high demand. If you are not really a people person but are more analytical, marketing may be a job sector for you. Market research analysts devise methods for determining which products and services consumers are actually buying. It is their job to anticipate the needs of the consumer and come up with an effective strategy for getting it out there.
Many job boards list opening for paralegals. It is the paralegal who actually keeps up with files and briefings. Paralegals often have a basic knowledge of legal matters and can assist a lawyer with a number of responsibilities. The starting salary for a paralegal may be a little less than other jobs on this list, but positions offer great growth potential in a challenging environment.
In spite of the fact that hospitals are undergoing extreme cuts, Registered Nurses are still in high demand. Many job boards show openings for RN positions. Other medical field positions around the country such as medical assistants, technicians and physician assistants are seeing growth as well.
Considering the stress the average American is experiencing as a result of the recession and various catastrophes that have happened it is no wonder that we have seen an increase in demand for those in the counseling field. Not only are private mental health facilities seeking counselors, but schools need counselors as well as the military and various other professions. They help to promote a sense of wellbeing in the people they assist whether they are assisting in the academic realm, career field or personal reasons. Counseling and/or education degrees usually lead to such positions.
When you are choosing a job, look at the ones that fit your interests. If you are nauseated by the sight of blood, becoming a Registered Nurse is probably not for you. Instead of choosing a job because of how much it pays, ask yourself if you had to do this for the rest of your life, would this make you happy? It is unfortunate that many people go into fields they do not care for simply because of financial reasons. Consider all aspects of the position you are applying for before you make your decision. Happy hunting.
