What are the Fastest Growing Industries?

Written by Nick Curtin

 

What are the fastest growing industries? In 2014, there is an average job growth rate nationwide of 10.8 percent among all industries. Slowly, but surely America has been climbing out of the recession of 2009; however, there are some industries in our economy that have taken off with growth rate percentages over 20 percent.

Apollo Professional Solutions is not only responsible for putting Americans to work and providing quality service to our clients, but also keeping a weather eye on the mercurial nature of the job market. This past year we have noticed huge hiring increases in each of the following industries:

 Healthcare

As the populations continue to grow and more people have access to affordable health insurance the demand for jobs within the field has soared. Specifically, we have noticed a rise in hospital administration, management, customer service, and suppliers. These people “behind the curtain” are playing a critical role in the healthcare environment making sure everything is running smoothly.

Project Management

The recession of 2009 caught a lot of companies off guard and exposed the inefficiency of their operations. There has been a great rise for project managers to come into companies and ensure efficiency, producing under budget, all while meeting deadlines.

 Pharmaceuticals

In accordance with the rise of healthcare professionals and affordable healthcare has granted access of more medicine to a greater part of the population. Not to mention, there is the constant evolution and progression of science breaking new grounds in medicine.

Information Security Analyst (ISAs)

Information security has been in the headlines the past couple months, or lack there of because people have been having their information hacked. Individuals and business’s alike are at risk and that has led to the rise in hiring ISAs to acquire as much protection as possible.

When an industry’s job growth is exponentially increasing, the qualified candidate pool will discernibly begin to decrease in size. Job seekers within these markets have more opportunities than ever and they will take their time to find the best one. Therefore, as important as it is to provide solid offers, it is paramount that companies have a way to find and source qualified talent.

Make no mistake; it is a race to find the top talent and most times the company that gets to the candidate first will win. To get a leg up on the competition, all a business would have to do is contact Apollo here.  Each and every recruiter at Apollo is a treasured commodity as they share in the value of submitting qualified candidates to our clients while leveraging their expertise in varying fields. We take great pleasure in contributing to the success stories of both our candidates and clients.
