Jobs portal Monster just released its latest list of the jobs that are most in-demand, and health care and technology jobs top the list.
According to Monster’s website, 7,900 jobs are searched on its worldwide network every minute and about 2,800 jobs are viewed. Of all the listings on the Monster website, the jobs listed below were the ones posted most frequently and constituted 20% of all new jobs posted on the portal.
“The jobs that are listed in the top 10 show the demand,” explained Monster Career Expert Vicki Salemi. “When we look at registered nurses, the Bureau of Labor Statistics expects there to be an increase of 15% in that job through 2026. If you’re looking for a job, and want job security, health care, technology, consumer support, retail — these are the jobs that have the most job openings.”
Here’s the top 10:
Supervisors of retail sales workers
Customer service representatives
Heavy and tractor-trailer truck drivers
Computer user support specialists
Maintenance and repair workers
Network and computer systems administrators
“Overall, health care and technology are in very high demand, and that’s not going to subside anytime soon,” Salemi said.
Salemi also added that regardless of the state of the labor market, job seekers should always be looking for opportunities. “I think in general, people should always be looking for a job. You never know when that awesome boss that you have is going to leave, or if your department is downsized.”
