Hospitality is the fastest growing industry with 44% growth in job listings from a year ago, with cooks, restaurant managers and bartenders in great demand.
The list shows 10 of the 12 major industries showing more job openings in February than a year ago. It tracks advertised instead of filled positions, which Indeed says is a more forward-looking indicator than government jobs data.
Other industries growing are:
- Retail, up 35%.
- Real estate, up 33%.
- Education, up 18%.
- Media and newspapers, up 18%.
- Financial services and banking, up 13%.
- Manufacturing, up 13%.
- Accounting, up 10%.
- Transportation, up 7%.
- Information technology, up 6%.
So if you're looking for a job in a fast growing industry, if you don't want to be a maid, then try being a customer service representative in retail, a property manager in real estate or a graphic designer at a newspaper.
If newspapers are hiring again, then the economy has to be turning around.
