After years of disappointing employment news, it looks like the job market has finally made a definitive turn in the right direction.

Over the past three months, the economy has added 721,000 jobs, or an average of 245,000 jobs per month, marking one of the greatest periods of job growth since before the recession. Additionally, in the six-month period from August 2011 to March 2012, the unemployment rate fell 0.8 percent. The current unemployment rate, 8.3 percent, is the lowest it’s been in three years.

So where are all of these new jobs coming from? Here’s a look at six occupations that are currently in high demand.

  1. I go on careerbuilder everyday and I don’t see any jobs that will even give you an interview let alone a job. What type of advice can you give to me I have been out of work for a year and would love to just be hired at a company that pays 85000 year. No games, no fake phone interviews no we have to interview you 4 times just to tell you no. For once I would love to have the job search process go easy.

       You can’t just expect company to offer you a job right on the spot.  The market is not very competitive and you need to do more to impress the hiring executive. If you looking for job that pays more than minimum wages, expect to go multiple interviews before you can get an a “YES” or “NO” answer.

  6. A financial career with Primerica Financial Services is by far the best decision I ever made! I make well over a 6 figure income. I did not need a college degree. The Company provides superior training. The potential for growth is amazing! This ia a great career for a GOAL ORIENTED, Positive and HIGHLY MOTIVATED person, no matter what your age is. Also there is a high demand for what our Co. does for families. And most important, our services are never effected by the economy. GREAT JOB SECIURITY!!! Terri – RVP (go.groovygirl@yahoo.com)

       I do business with Primerica more than 10 years ago and I’m a totally believer of term life insurance as your company are very well-known about but I decided to cancel my insurance with Primerica after a couple months since I can find a cheaper premium from a top rated carrier.  As well as your mutual funds that time has higher expense ratio.
