Best jobs for 2015 Metro hotspots and key industries driving employment




TAKING THE TOP FIVE JOBS IN EACH EDUCATION CATEGORY, WE DETERMINED WHERE THEIR GROWTH, WAGES, AND CONCENTRATION ARE STRONGEST, AS WELL AS THE KEY INDUSTRIES DRIVING EMPLOYMENT FOR THESE OCCUPATIONS.
In our recent analysis with CareerBuilder, we distilled the top occupations (both degree-requiring and no-degree-requiring) whose monthly job postings are distinctly higher than the number of hires—meaning employers advertising for those jobs are on a vigorous hunt for talent. In this post we wanted to dig deeper. Taking the top five jobs in each education category, we determined where their growth, wages, and concentration are strongest, as well as the key industries driving employment for these occupations.
The upshot: San Francisco, San Jose, Seattle, Houston, Dallas, and Detroit are the usual suspects for top metro areas (especially for the occupations requiring a college degree) and a number of the occupations share the same key industries, such as management of companies and enterprises (NAICS 5511) and computer systems design and related services (NAICS 5415).

The 6 Best New Career Books for 2015

They could make you more successful or help you reinvent yourself



Cosmopolitan Magazine's Fun Fearless Life Conference Powered By WME Live - Day 1

By Nancy Collamar

Selecting the best books for your career that were published in the past 12 months proved a challenging but enjoyable process, much like when I did the same in 2013 and in 2014. There are always so many interesting new reads that it's difficult to narrow down my favorites.

But decide I did, with a focus this year on books in two key areas: Career Management and Success Strategies and Career Reinvention. Here are my six top picks:

CAREER MANAGEMENT AND SUCCESS STRATEGIES


Moving the Needle: Get Clear, Get Free, and Get Going in Your Career, Business and Life by Joe Sweeney. This is a fun, inspirational read that includes anecdotes, advice and wisdom pulled from Sweeney's years as a sports agent, serial entrepreneur and executive coach.

He provides a three-part framework (Get Clear, Get Free and Get Going) to use whether you're looking to make a career change or want to move up in your current job. Unlike many other books in this genre that tend to be light on actionable specifics, this book is filled with helpful exercises, to-do's and thought-provoking questions.

One particularly useful exercise: Sweeney's Life Decision Wheel - a chart designed to help you create a more effective work-life balance, something many of us covet.



Mistakes I Made At Work: 25 Influential Women Reflect On What They Got Out Of Getting It Wrong edited by Jessica Bacal. All too often, profiles of successful people trumpet their successes and gloss over their obstacles. This wonderful book does just the opposite.

Mistakes I Made At Work is a compilation of 25 candid, insightful essays by notable women such as writer Cheryl Strayed (author of Wild) and New York Times "Shortcuts" columnist Alina Tugend who share their career mishaps, screw-ups and regrets. Cue the Hallelujah Chorus.

I couldn't put this book down. The stories are surprisingly relatable and remind us that even the most accomplished people get it wrong -sometimes more than once.

Each essay ends with three "lessons learned" about how to get back on the right track once you've slipped up. For example, Dr. Danielle Ofri, an associate professor at New York University's School of Medicine, writes about the time she almost killed a patient during her residency. Over time, Ofri says she came to realize, "If you make a mistake, it's important to distinguish the action from the person. What you did was a mistake, but you aren't the mistake."

While this book is intended for women, I strongly recommend it for men, too - all of us can draw strength from knowing that sometimes our greatest career triumphs can grow out of our worst missteps.


Small Move, Big Change: Using Microresolutions to Transform Your Life Permanently by Caroline L. Arnold, a managing director at Goldman Sachs. Arnold's book is built around the premise that willpower alone is not enough to override our ingrained habits. (This isn't technically a career book, but as a career coach I know that many people struggle to stay on track with their work goals; their resolve fizzles over time.)

The key to creating long-term change, Arnold says, is to set smaller but winnable goals that then lead to a pattern of sustainable habits.

For example, rather than setting a fuzzy goal of "get more organized," she says you'll have greater success with a more achievable goal, such as "sort and discard the mail every day." Once that habit is ingrained, you'll be motivated to implement other organizational tweaks to your routine.

Weaving together science and personal anecdotes, Arnold builds a compelling case for how micro, but meaningful, changes in behavior can lead to significant changes in our finances, personal lives, health - all arenas that ultimately impact our careers.


Love Your Job: The New Rules for Career Happiness by Kerry Hannon (available March 2, 2015). Finding a new job, changing careers or starting your own business sounds exciting. But in reality, the switch is often daunting - especially for people over 50. That's why so many older workers stay put at their jobs, even when they're desperately unhappy.

That's why I was delighted to learn that my Next Avenue colleague Kerry Hannon wrote a book on how to "take this job and love it." Based on her decades of experience covering work and money for media outlets from Forbes to AARP, Hannon offers simple techniques, attitude adjustments and habits that can help transform a drab job into a meaningful and fulfilling one. (And I assure you, I'd be recommending this book even if she wasn't a Next Avenue contributor.)

One of my favorite tips in the book is to keep a log of all the mindless tasks you handle, so you can then find ways to free up your time for more fulfilling work.

There is wisdom for everyone in Love Your Job. And even if you eventually decide to leave your job, Hannon's suggestions will help make your current position far more bearable while you explore other options.

CAREER REINVENTION


Now What? Revised Edition: 90 Days to a New Life Direction (Third Edition, available March 3, 2015) by renowned life coach Laura Berman Fortgang. All of us face pivotal points in our careers when we feel paralyzed and ask: "Now What?" If you find yourself at a career crossroads, this book will provide a step-by-step roadmap to help you gain clarity, confidence and momentum.

There's a reason why this book is now in its third edition: It works. I know, because as a career coach, I've used Berman Fortgang's system to help advise my own clients.

Now What? is divided into two parts: The first half helps you name what "It" is and the second focuses on ways to more effectively put your plans into action.

One of my favorite chapters is "What You Hate Gives a Name to What You Want." It's amazing how when we articulate what we don't like, we open up the space for change to happen.

This is the first time the book has been revised since 2004, and while the system is essentially the same (with a few minor tweaks based on user feedback), Now What? now features QR codes that link back to useful content on the web.

While not every reader will reach all of his or her goals within 90 days (it is a process after all), you'll be surprised how much you can accomplish by following the book's chronological steps.

Whether you're employed, unemployed, thinking about retirement or just itching for a new challenge, this book will help you better navigate life's inevitable "Now What?" moments.


Playing Big: Find Your Voice, Your Vision, Your Message by San Francisco-based women's leadership coach Tara Mohr. LIke Bacal's book, this one is tailored to women but is equally useful for men.

Based on Mohr's acclaimed women's leadership program by the same name, Playing Big is a guide for people eager to get clarity about their life goals and achieve more, but in a personally authentic way.

Mohr asserts that "playing big" doesn't have to lead to more money, fame or a leadership role. Instead, she encourages you to figure out your own version of "playing big" - whether that means reconnecting with a creative dream, committing to an ambitious fitness goal or deciding to start a business.

A key theme in the book is that while self-doubt causes problems, developing confidence is not the remedy. Rather, Mohr says, the antidote is to learn how to relate in a new way to self-doubt by acknowledging it, without taking direction from it.

The book offers specific strategies to help silence your inner critics, unlearn "good girl" habits and become less dependent on praise so you can achieve "bigger" things in your career and personal life.

Hiring trends to expect in 2015






CareerBuilder's annual forecast shows job seekers what to expect in 2015.
Matt Tarpey, CareerBuilder writer
The ball has dropped, the champagne has gone flat, and we’ve all forgotten the lyrics to Auld Lang Syne. The New Year is still young, but it’s already off to an encouraging start. According to CareerBuilder’s annual job forecast, 36 percent of employers expect to add full-time, permanent employees in 2015, up from 24 percent last year and the best outlook from the survey since 2006.
“The U.S. job market is turning a corner as caution gives way to confidence,” says
Matt Ferguson, CEO of CareerBuilder and co-author of“The Talent Equation.” “Hiring in 2014 was broad-based, including encouraging activity among small businesses and hard-hit sectors like manufacturing and construction. The amount of companies planning to hire in 2015 is up 12 percentage points over last year, setting the stage for a more competitive environment for recruiters that may lend itself to some movement in wages.”

Industries in the lead
The overall job market is looking up, and the outlook for several industries is even brighter. Information technology (54 percent), financial services (42 percent), manufacturing (41 percent) and health care (38 percent) are all expected to add permanent jobs at a faster rate than the national average this year.

Where’s the growth?
National job growth is great, but what kind of jobs can we expect? According to the survey, occupations in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fields will continue to be a safe bet, with 31 percent of hiring managers planning to create jobs in these areas over the next 12 months.
In terms of specific functions within organizations, the top five areas where employers are planning on adding full-time, permanent staff include:
1)Sales – 36 percent
2)Customer service – 33 percent
3)Information technology – 26 percent
4)Production – 26 percent
5)Administrative – 22 percent
Additionally, some new and emerging fields are expected to see strong job growth in the coming year, including:
Increasing wages
With new legislation and a place in the public spotlight, minimum wage workers may be looking at pay increases in the near future. Nearly half (45 percent) of employers expect to raise the minimum wage within their organizations in 2015; 53 percent of whom will raise it by $2 or more per hour while 32 percent will raise it by $3 or more. Forty-seven percent will limit the increase to $1 or less.

Sixty-nine percent of employers say they’ll pay $10 or more per hour, while 39 percent will pay $12 or more and 18 percent will pay $15 or more.
Minimum wage workers aren’t the only ones who may start seeing bigger paychecks in 2015. Eighty-two percent of employers plan to increase compensation for existing employees – up from 73 percent last year – while 64 percent will offer higher starting salaries for new employees – up from 49 percent last year.

Education requirements growing too
Many employers are adjusting the education requirements for open positions to match the increasing complexity of these roles. More than a quarter of companies say they’re now hiring candidates with master’s degrees for positions that had been primarily held by workers with four-year degrees in past years. Similarly, 37 percent are now hiring workers with college degrees for positions that had been primarily held by workers with high school diplomas. The majority (65 percent) of these employers attributed this shift to the skills required for evolving positions within their organizations.


Part-time and temporary jobs on the rise
Twenty-three percent of employers expect to recruit part-time workers over the next 12 months, up six percentage points over last year. While various factors will influence this trend, 14 percent of all employers say they’ll likely hire more part-time workers in 2015 due to the Affordable Care Act.

Temporary employment is also expected to pick up in 2015, with 46 percent of employers planning to hire temporary or contract workers this year, up from 42 percent last year. Of these employers, 56 percent plan to transition some temporary or contract workers into full-time, permanent roles.
