    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.

    Mark Charnock, vice president and general manager of MonsterTRAK -
    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.
