Jobs Outlook Looks Promising as Healthcare & Medical Careers Take 8 of the Top 20 Fastest Growing Opportunities Through 2020
According to the US Department of Labor, 8 of the top 20 fastest growing occupations will come from the healthcare sector through the year 2020, with careers in physical therapy accounting for three of the top healthcare opportunities.*
Physical Therapists are among the top paid professionals in the healthcare field and consistently have the highest job satisfaction ratings. Physical therapy assistants can also earn excellent salaries and only require an Associate’s degree to get hired.
Due to this increased job demand, PhysicalTherapySchoolsInfo has announced the creation of a new section on their website that will provide potential physical therapy students the opportunity to learn more about working in this profitable healthcare profession.
The new career-centered area of this company’s website will feature information about physical therapy job opportunities, schooling options, salaries, job requirements and more. It is currently available for free for anyone interested in looking into a career in physical therapy.
As Baby Boomers age into retirement by the millions each year, their growing health care needs require more people to administer that care.
That makes fields such as nursing one of the fastest-growing occupations, and hospitals are hiring now to prepare for what’s to come.
Central Florida Health Alliance has 140 to 170 open positions a week, and almost 90 percent of them are for jobs that include registered nurses, pharmacists, physical therapists and pharmacy technicians, says Holly Kolozsvary, human resources director.
The two-hospital system based in Leesburg and The Villages is hiring for its peak season from January to April, when many retirees seek winter refuge in the Florida sun.
But it’s also managing a trend that requires it to employ more people year-round: More retirees aren’t leaving at the end of spring, Kolozsvary says.
“They move here, they’re well, they get sick, they’re left here through their cancer or heart disease, and we have to take care of them,” she says.
Job postings on Monster.com for positions including registered nurses, physical therapists and physician assistants rose 13 percent from June 2011 through June 2012, according to a 2012 health occupational report by the job site….
