Top five industries for entry-level employment

MonsterTrak, the student division of Monster.com, has released a study on the industries who are hiring the most entry-level workers. MonsterTRAK this week released the top five industries for entry-level workers based on a review of job openings posted on its site over the last year.

The top job categories and occupations are:
  1. Sales and Business Development: Accounting for almost a quarter of all postings for entry-level workers, Sales and Business Development includes jobs in account management, real estate, advertising and field sales.

  2. Accounting and Finance: Despite a downturn in the mortgage and loan sectors, this category accounts for almost 15 percent of postings, with employers seeking entry-level candidates for accounting, financial analysis, consulting and administration positions.

  3. Training and Instruction: Education-related opportunities, including special education and junior high school teachers, college administrators, counselors and adult education specialists, increased more than 90 percent year-over-year.

  4. Information Technology and Software Development: The most popular jobs in this industry include web and software design, consulting, online security systems, computer maintenance and help desk support.

  5. Medical and Health: This category outpaced all others with growth of 200 percent year-over-year. Nurses, dental practitioners, pharmacists, physical and occupational therapists, and general practice physicians are the most highly sought.

As the medical and educational sectors continue to add jobs, as well as expand online recruitment efforts, we expect their need for qualified applicants to outpace other white-collar industries that previously dominated year-over-year growth such as the slowing financial and business sectors. Because the majority of industries, regardless of the sector, will continue to face a shortage of talent generationally, many employers are looking to attract entry-level candidates by offering long-term growth potential and other perks. This remains good news for students who are undecided about a degree path, as well as recent graduates and young professionals still looking for their first opportunity.

Though business and finance postings continue to dominate the majority of entry-level openings, the rise in medical and educational opportunities suggest a shift in the type of jobs available to entry-level candidates. More and more employers are realizing the value of providing entry-level training and development programs in an effort to promote and groom from within.

The study also noted there was a 200 percent increase in entry-level healthcare and medical positions. Business development and accounting and finance still account for the largest percentage of entry-level jobs.
