Where are the jobs right now ??

The current fields with the best job prospects accross the board are: Healthcare, Education, Government. Government and Education are showing small signs of weakness.

Another area to look at are fields where the pay is significantly above the median weekly earning of $350.00. Those fields typically require a college education. They are scientific, engineering and computer related.

But they also include certain building trades and construction jobs. These jobs do not require a college education but come with a long apprentice ship or training requirement.

Finally, one can compute a job quality index ("Good Jobs Index") with factors like pay and autonomy. Then add in the education component. Good jobs with low education requiements are in constructions and good jobs with higher education components are in Advanced Education, Law, Medicine.
