Health Care Jobs Aid Drop in Unemployment

Employment opportunities in healthcare remain abundant this Fall, as reported in the most recently released national jobs numbers.

The September employment figures from the Bureau of Labors Statistics (BLS) showed an unemployment rate below 8% for the first time in nearly four years, with healthcare spurring on the growth.

Careers in healthcare continue to show promise with 44,000 additions made in September, bringing the total for 2012 to 295,000 new jobs created. In tumultuous economic times, healthcare has become a rock of stability.

Trends suggest those seeking employment in healthcare should look in fields that specialize outside of the hospital environment. More than two-thirds of all the healthcare-related positions added in September were if the outpatient field.

Occupational and physical therapists ranked Nos. 3 and 4 in the CareerCast Top 12 Healthcare Jobs report, and fit the increased demand patients have from health providers. Home healthcare aids are also in high demand in the current job market.

Don’t anticipate this trend to stop anytime soon, either. Healthcare offers hiring opportunities that far outpace the national employment averages in other fields, and should continue that pace as the Baby Boom generation continues to age. The BLS also attributes long term growth outlook in home healthcare careers to aging Baby Boomers.
