Marketing Number One in Yet Another Career Survey

4 Jan

For those with a college degree, Marketing places TWO career options in CareerBuilder’s “Top Jobs for 2015” survey — Marketing Executive at number one and Sales Manager at number ten.

According to the study’s press release:

“Looking for a new job in the New Year? CareerBuilder partnered with Economic Modeling Specialists Intl. (EMSI) to compile a list of hot jobs for 2015 based on supply and demand. The list features occupations for which the number of jobs companies post each month significantly outpaces the number of people they’re actually able to hire – showing where companies are hungry for talent and how much the positions pay.”

“‘Job creation is gaining ground and job seekers are gaining leverage,’ said Matt Ferguson, CEO of CareerBuilder and co-author of The Talent Equation. ‘For nearly 70 occupations in the U.S., the rate at which workers are being hired isn’t keeping up with the frequency and volume of open positions being advertised. By drawing attention to talent deficits, our list underscores opportunities in everything from technology and health care to sales and transportation for job seekers looking to make a change.’”

“The analysis uses EMSI’s extensive labor market database, which pulls from over 90 national and state employment resources. CareerBuilder and EMSI looked at the average number of people hired per month in more than 700 occupations from January 2013 to August 2014 and compared that to the number of job postings for each occupation aggregated from online job sites for the same period.”
