10 Promising Jobs for the Class of 2009
By Anthony Balderrama, CareerBuilder.com writer
This summer, diplomas will be handed out, hats will be tossed in the air and college graduates will look to enter that elusive Real World they've heard so much about. It's all very exciting and nerve-wracking, in a good way.
Of course, student loan repayments are six months away and, as anyone who's turned on the news in the last year will tell you, the economy's not exactly booming.
Never fear, graduates. Yes, the hiring market is slower than it was when you entered college, but there are still jobs to be had. To help your search and calm your nerves, we've put together a list of 10 jobs that college grads should look for this year.
How did we do it? We looked at the National Association of Colleges and Employers' "Job Outlook 2009" survey of employers to see what industries were hiring and which majors interested them most. Then we looked at the Bureau of Labor Statistics' "Occupational Outlook Handbook" to see what positions fell under both categories and were expected to grow between 2006 and 2016.
Keep in mind that not every employer in these industries will be hiring at the same level and that many factors can come into play during the hiring process, such as your location. Also, the economy's erratic behavior and the stimulus bill could give some other jobs a big boost. Still, these are 10 jobs that new graduates have a good chance of finding in 2009.
