Employment Is On The Rise

Healthcare continues to be one of the most lucrative industries where growth is concerned. The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that the health care industry has added 631,000 jobs since the recession began. The BLS projects employment to grow faster than the average – almost 20 percent from 2008 to 2016 – and prospects look especially bright for those with work experience in health care and strong technical skills.
