Where The Jobs Are In 2014

After the recent years of an unstable economy and sketchy employment opportunities, analysts believe that the worst may be coming to an end. For 2014, projections predict that the country will see a 2.6 million job increase. This means 0.4 million more jobs emerging compared to the previous year. Though particularly hit hard by the fragile economy, Arizona and Florida are also expected to experience job growth. The ever-expanding healthcare industry, energy and high-tech fields are largely responsible for the improvements.

Moody’s Analysis a Fairytale?

The global economic forecasting company, Moody Analytics predicts that California and Texas will have almost 572,000 new employment opportunities before the year ends. The company also sees Florida adding 176,000 jobs, and Arizona offering 77,000 new positions. By the end of 2013, some analytical surveys claimed that the country regained approximately 85 percent of the nine million jobs lost during the economic crisis. This means that 200,000 positions became available every month. Statistics also suggest that the nation’s unemployment rate fell to a mere 7 percent. In the fall of 2009, that number was a haunting 10%. By the middle of 2014, Moody expected that employment options would begin peaking throughout the U.S.

What Jobs Where?

Ten states in particular are expected to demonstrate the largest employment growth rate. These states include Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Oregon, and Utah. In Florida, employers are in need of carpenters, cement masons, and construction project managers. In Colorado, the healthcare profession continues needing more registered nurses. Retail store employees are also in demand. Through the year 2020, New York is looking at hiring more biomedical engineers and individuals having event planning experience. California, Ohio, and Utah are states needing home health and personal care aides. One might consider a move to Idaho or South Carolina in the future to find work as a registered nurse or a physical therapist. However, North Dakota continues generating more jobs faster than any other state due to the growth of the energy industry.
