Dear readers and job-seekers, there is work to be found in the US of A! This week I've conducted semi-scientific investigative work to see where work can be found and in what industries.
Where are the jobs?Looking at maps on Web sites that show job postings per 1000 people, you can see that Washington DC and the surrounding areas have many open positions and for all levels. Silicon Valley in central California is hiring, as are companies in the Seattle area, and eastern Texas. In the northeast, Boston and Hartford are seeing jobs in good numbers. Not sure about the cost of traveling? Try this travel expense calculator.
Tech savvy?There's always work, it seems, for peole with computer skills ranging from data-processing services to engineers, computer support specialists, and database administrators. Much of this work is found in Seattle and in central California. Also, the US Government is hiring.
Not technical? That's OK, the eldest Baby Boomers need your help. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, health care is the biggest growth area in the US. Job titles include medical assistants, home health aides, medical assistants, and physician assitants. Some training is needed for this kind of work, and it can be gotten at community colleges. Medical training is a skill you can take anywhere and some organizations offer it on the job.
Over 50?For those over 50, you have the great benefit of wisdom, clarity and experience. Thank goodness, because customers of all industries want that. You are wanted especially in health-care professions predominant in doctor's offices, clinics, home healthcare companies, laboratories, and hospitals. And if you're thinking about down-sizing, rural areas need people to fill these jobs.
Looking for flexibility?Temporary and contract jobs are on the rise, an option very nice for those seeking flexible hours and good rates of pay. All ages are welcome here! The jobs can vary, but you know, they pay.
