Despite the sour projections the media likes to dwell on, job opportunities are on the rise in the United States and will continue to rise. The US has officially entered into a recovery from the recession that had plagued it, with an estimated five million new jobs listed online. However, the jobs that are being created have been kept on the down low. You have to know what to look for, and you have to actively look for a job in the industries most likely to help you out.

While some of these jobs may not be to the standard of certain Americans, there is plenty of room in the job market for you to find work. One job title that has consistently topped the charts for several quarters is physical therapist. This job has a constant demand for new blood. Registered Nurses also continually find themselves on the top ten lists for job opportunities due to a shortage in nurses.
The top industries for creating a vast number of new jobs are Sales, Healthcare, Management, and Accounting Professions. Note that these four industries differ from the industries with fastest growth within the industry; however there are some correlations between the two. Information Technology, or IT Tech, is one of the fastest growing industries, so that factors into IT Project Manager being in the top ten. The same is true with the fact that Forensic Accounting, or investigative accounting, is another fast growing industry due to the recent scandals. With accounting professions, specifically tax related services have been in need for new employees due to amended tax returns, unfiled tax returns, and tax audits.
If you are looking for a job, then the opportunity exists to find one. In America, there are over 6 million jobs listed and more continuously being created. While certain industries condense, others demand new workers. Financial experts expect growth to continue to 2016. In order to capitalize on the increasing job market, you need to go out of your comfort zone and apply to places where there is evidence of employment opportunities. Some jobs are not advertised online, so it is up to you to go out of your way to find these new jobs.
