Getting Hired: 5 Positions New Businesses Are Always Looking to Hire

Although the sluggish economy has definitely taken a toll on many individuals, people would be surprised that some employers are always looking to hire certain positions. Moreover, many employers have a hard time filling these positions. For some positions, certain skills are needed, and employers can often only find a few people who have these unique set of skills. If you are having a hard time finding a job, then you should consider gaining the skills to acquire one of these five positions listed below. 


Many employers are often in need of qualified accountants. Since the economic recession, the government has placed tight regulations on the ways that people have previously done business. As a result, employers are finding themselves having to keep all of their financial records current. If you are interested in this career, it is important to obtain a bachelor’s degree in accounting, and for the best chances of getting hired, you should also obtain a master’s degree in an accounting related field.

Dental Hygienist

Recently, more people have begun to take steps to stay healthy, and one of the ways that they are doing this is by practicing good oral hygiene. Dental hygienists are needed to clean teeth, take x-rays, and look for signs of decay in a person’s teeth. The field is growing rapidly because many dentists do not desire to have private practices anymore, but instead, they are looking to work in larger offices with lots of dentists. As a result, many hygienists are needed in these offices as well.

Management Information Systems

One of the fastest growing fields is management information systems. Many employers are looking for individuals to help collect and organize their business operations. People who work in the field of management information systems should have a clear understanding of businesses and computers. Since this field is growing so quickly, many colleges are offering online MIS degrees. The UAB Masters MIS program is designed to prepare individuals to pursue careers in the area of management information systems.

Personal Financial Advisor

Since the economic downturn, many people are weary about investing in certain stocks; therefore, they rely on personal financial advisors to educate them about the risks associated with investing. However, their advice is not limited to stocks, but they also educate people on the best ways to save for college and retirement. In order to pursue this field, an individual can get a degree in finance, economics, law, or business.

Medical Manager

A final position that employers are looking to hire is medical manager. A medical manager directs the daily activities of a hospital or other healthcare clinic. With the retirement of many baby boomers, the healthcare field is growing quickly. In order to pursue this career, it is important for individuals to get a degree in healthcare administration.

Even though the economy has caused many degrees to be useless, there are certain fields that can land you a job quickly. By pursuing one of the jobs listed above, you will have a great chance of beginning a career.

How Businesses Can Stay On Top of the Hiring Process

One of the largest investments a business makes is in its employees and payroll. From health benefits to worker's compensation, employees cost a lot to hire and keep on, but they bolster the company and fly it into higher realms of success. Staying on top of the hiring process is one of the best ways to vet prospective employees, and find top-notch candidates for your niche workplace. 

Paperwork Pile

Although it is a tedious job, screening for drugs and criminal activity is a must before offering the candidate a position. Liabilities abound if a known drug-user operates workplace machinery, and an employee ends up injured. Check that human resources is completing paperwork and research prior to any job offers.

Call Around

Everyone has some professional contacts, but they are often bound by legal protocol. True insight into an individual starts with their friends. Ask for a personal reference and follow up on it. A candidate with only moderate skills may shine brightly after talking to their best friend from elementary school. A workplace is not just a cluster of random people, but forms a unique culture that is either productive or lackluster.

Interview, and Then Interview

You may have several candidates, such as those applying through job listings for media sales, that were actually found through headhunters. Although they have the skills necessary for the position, they may not be completely on board with a new employer. Instead of one interview and an automatic hire, interview the candidate two more times, but under different circumstances. Invite them to a lunch hour to see employee chemistry in action, for example. Candidates looking for an outgoing type of position, like advertising sales jobs, must possess good social skills to create clients and support other loyal customers.

Be Clear

The first three months of employment tells a lot about a candidate. Once acclimated, you see the person's true character on a day-to-day basis. If the employee is unhappy, it shows through immediately after the initial honeymoon period. These three month probationary periods provide a cushion for the employer to remove the candidate, and search for a new person, without the threat of legal retribution.

Employees provide support customers need for continued sales and service. By treating employees respectfully during the hiring process, you reflect potential treatment as a long-term employee. The key to staying on top of the hiring process is clear communication between the candidate and employer, along with thorough research and interviewing.
