Healthcare Job Outlook
Do you know what the job outlook is for any of the medical careers you’re interested in? Often times, it can be helpful to know exactly how many professionals are in your career of interest, and how many there will be in the future. What if the occupation is on the decline, would you still want to pursue it?
We’ve indexed every single one of these medical occupations against similar jobs to give you an idea of how well that particular occupation is doing. Also, we’ve indexed it against all occupations so you’re aware of how that career stacks up versus the rest of the United States. With that said, the growth rate in employment levels of all occupations is 11%. Generally speaking, chances are that careers with growth rates higher than 11% may have more opportunities, while those with 10% or less may have fewer opportunities. Of course, there are a number of factors that may affect this, but it’s still helpful to know.
Key Factors Affecting Your Healthcare Salary
We’re providing detailed healthcare salary information by industries, states, and cities. Why? Aside from education, certification, and experience, these are the main factors that affect how much money you can potentially earn. We want to give you as much information as possible, so you can make the most informed decision on what career to pursue and where to work.
Depending on the job, some locations pay significantly less than others. In particular, non-metropolitan areas typically pay wages that are much less than major cities. This can be due to lower standard of living costs, which should be considered, as well. On the other hand, some major cities pay salaries that are much higher than other major cities for reasons other than the cost of living. Based on salary, you can determine how competitive some of the cities are relative to others. Again, all of these factors will need to be weighed when deciding which career is right for you.
We want to equip you with valuable information to help you decide which healthcare career is right for you, the requirements, and how much you can potentially earn.
