Healthcare sector- job outlook looks brighter than ever

Healthcare workers:  in case you were wondering whether or not your career choice was a solid one with long-term stability...wonder no more. If you are reading this blog, you are likely a candidate searching for placement, or an employer looking to fill some staffing needs.  Either way, the outlook is phenomenal for the healthcare sector as a whole!

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the healthcare sector added 43,000 jobs in July 2016 alone.  In addition, the sector has continued to trend up and outpace others in job creation with ambulatory services gaining 19,000 jobs while hospitals gained 17,000, Healthcare IT News noted. The country's overall unemployment rate remains at 4.9%.

Healthcare has added a total of 477,000 jobs over the past year, the BLS reports. Its occupational handbook predicts healthcare employment will increase 19% by 2024 and at "much faster" than hiring in other industries.
