Hot Jobs: Growing Industrial Sectors
Wednesday, February 05, 2020
Although the number of jobs lost during the Great Recession have been regained, not all regions or industry sectors have experienced the same recovery.
Where are the best job opportunities, and in what sectors? The research from market analytics consultant Emsi suggests that some of the most attractive sectors in terms of decent-paying jobs are also doing fairly well in terms of job growth.
Most states will welcome all the manufacturing activity they can get, for example, and many states have been seeing healthy manufacturing job growth in recent years. Auto manufacturing is in respectable shape, biopharm is healthier all the time, and there’s always a need to make more food. Some job sectors are relatively flat, but even the one that has suffered the most in the past few years — oil and gas — seems to be on the mend.
