PHILADELPHIA JOB MARKET A CHALLENGE

"PHILADELPHIA JOB MARKET A CHALLENGE"

Philadelphia Is.

Amy Smith | 2010 | Topics: Culture | Region: East Coast | Cities: Philadelphia

Philadelphia Jobs

The Philadelphia Research Initiative, a PEW Charitable Trust project, published a PEW 2010 update to last year’s report, Philadelphia 2009: State of the City. The report follows key indicators of urban vitality including population growth, poverty rate, job availability, crime statistics, and home prices. The Philadelphia Research Initiatives’ earlier studies have covered such topics as Philadelphia’s 311 system and the cost of employee benefits. This most recent report praises Philadelphia for its progress – in population and test scores increases – while exposing sharp impediments to future growth – a high poverty rate and limited job growth. Here I concentrate on two sections of personal interest.

The Philadelphia Job Market: a challenge

As a junior at the University of Pennsylvania, I am particularly attuned to the state of the current job market. Summer is quickly approaching and Penn juniors are eager to find internships. March has been a grueling month of sending out cover letters and resumes into a seemingly empty void, from which there are hardly any replies. One dear friend has all but given up on her job search and seems to be relinquishing her near-future to last minute contacts, luck, and the inexplicable powers of the universe. Another friend put in a hefty late-March effort and sent out fifty applications in a single day. Stress sets in. Parents preach patience and point to the struggling job market.

The State of the City report reinforces the structural cause of our panic. Philadelphia lost 11,500 jobs in 2009 alone. The remaining 651,000 jobs are a record low in the city’s modern history. In December, the unemployment rate was at a high 10.6%.

And worse: whole sectors of the job market are collapsing. Mining and construction jobs have declined by 21% and manufacturing by 41%. Fields of particular interest to my peers, such as information, government and finance, are also struggling. These markets shrunk by 26, 12 and 18 percent respectively. However, jobs in education and health services are strong; the market expanded by 17% in 2009. Meanwhile, in my dorm, we wonder how to match economic trends to our diverse interests – English, anthropology, even marketing.

Education and Health Care Jobs Dominate Philadelphia Region

This Economy:

Education and health care

dominant jobs in Phila. region

Harold Brubaker By Harold Brubaker - Inquirer Staff Writer

In the world of government job counters, one broad category comes out on top in most of the nation's biggest metropolitan areas: trade, transportation, and utilities. The grab bag grouping includes cashiers, truck drivers, and utility workers.

But in a handful of the nation's 12 biggest metro areas, another category, generally better paying, holds the top spot. In San Francisco and Washington, it's professional and business services. It's education and health services in Boston.

The Philadelphia region joined that distinguished group last year, when "eds and meds" surpassed trade, transportation, and utilities, according to a recent study by Bureau of Labor Statistics economists Gerald Perrins and Diane Nilsen.

The researchers, looking at changes in the region's workforce since 1998, found that the percentage of workers in health care and education climbed to 19.9 percent in March of 2009 from 16.7 percent, representing a gain of nearly 100,000 positions.

The Philadelphia region is now more concentrated in education and health services, which have the advantage of big-government backing, than any other large metro area in the country, the researchers found. "That has actually helped Philadelphia during the recession," Perrins said.

Even during the worst of the downturn in 2009 - when more than 10,000 jobs a month were disappearing from the region - schools, colleges, hospitals, and doctors' offices kept hiring, adding an average of 12,000 jobs a month since December 2007, when the recession began.

The region's heavy reliance on the relatively stable sectors of health care and education has cushioned it from the worst effects of the recession, but is it an unqualified plus?

It comes close, especially given the overall diversity of the area economy, economists said.

Pennsylvania women in 2008 ... earned about 78 percent of what their male counterparts were paid, which is larger than the national variation, according to newly released figures.

Full-time wage and salary workers in Pennsylvania who were female had median weekly earnings of $642, compared with $815 for men, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics said this week.

Nationally, women made $638, about 80 percent of the $798 men made.

U.S. women in 1979 earned 62 percent of what men made, a ratio that rose gradually to a peak of 81 percent in 2005 and 2006.

The report noted that comparisons are broad and don’t account for factors such as education, which could help explain the disparities.

Headhunters and recruiters are in a rush to fill medical job openings and related healthcare job openings because there is such an abundance of jobs needing employee placement.

The reason for the number of large medical job openings is due to the high demand of career opportunities that exist from the aging population of the baby boomers and the major advancements taking place in the healthcare industry. There are likely many hundreds of different types of medical job listings but the following is a small list of some of the high demand medical job openings that exist on all of the major job search websites.

Medical technicians, technologists and medical assistants are also in very high demand and are expected to grow by a whopping 36% by the year 2016.

Medical office administration and medical support jobs, although less highly paid, are in great demand and expected to grow 11% by 2016. Additionally, home health care and hospice care job opportunities are expected to grow by an enormous 50% rate by 2016 because of the rapidly aging population of this country. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, home health care and hospice care are the single most growth intensive careers in the medical jobs industry.

Their are many places online to find medical job openings, some respected job post sites include Monster and JobNewsRADIO, Ladders, HotJobs, and many others.
