Healthcare Leads U.S. Job Growth in September 2011

There is some wildly encouraging news for those seeking jobs in healthcare in the recent US Bureau of Labor report.

“The healthcare sector is creating jobs at a pace not seen in four years and is responsible for nearly one in four new jobs in the overall economy so far in 2011, new data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics show.

Ambulatory services continue to set the pace for healthcare sector growth, creating 26,000 new jobs in September after posting 18,100 new jobs in August. Ambulatory services have been responsible for 66% (155,200) of new jobs in healthcare so far in 2011. In the first nine months of 2010, ambulatory services created 128,300 new jobs.”

Even though employment is so soft throughout the world right now, health care is doing quite well.
