Sunday, May 19th, 2013

With the addition of more office space, more San Antonio jobs are possible.

BusinesSuites Sonterra is located in north-central San Antonio on East Sonterra Boulevard at the corner of Ronald Reagan Drive in the Stone Oak area.

Employers plan on hiring grads for San Antonio jobs

Monday, May 6th, 2013

Many Texas employers are committed to hiring new grads for San Antonio jobs.

That’s according to a recent survey from CareerBuilder.

More than half (53 percent) of U.S. employers plan to hire recent college graduates in 2013, on par with 2012 (54 percent) and up significantly from 46 percent in 2011 and 44 percent in 2010.

According to the survey, information technology employers rank ahead of all industries with 65 percent of hiring managers and human resources professionals planning to hire recent graduates. They are followed by financial services employers (63 percent) and health care employers (56 percent). Additionally, the survey found that employers in IT and financial services are the most likely to recruit workers for hard-to-fill jobs (37 percent, each) prior to graduation.

Of employers who plan to hire recent college graduates, 27 percent expect to offer higher starting salaries than they did in 2012 with nearly half reporting that starting salaries will range between $30,000 and $49,999, but strong percentages plan to extend offers at the low and high ends of the pay scale as well:

Less than $30,000 — 25 percent
$30,000 to less than $40,000 — 29 percent
$40,000 to less than $50,000 — 20 percent
$50,000 and higher — 25 percent

Recruiters will be primarily looking for recent college graduates to fill two types of jobs: front-line customer and client facing roles such as customer service and sales, and roles that require specific technical knowledge or hard skills, such as IT, finance or health care.

IT — 26 percent (employers recruiting for jobs in this role)
Customer service — 19 percent
Finance/accounting — 16 percent
Sales — 16 percent
Business development — 15 percent
Health care — 12 percent

“New college graduates are facing a better employment situation this year, but the number of employers planning to recruit them are still trailing pre-recession estimates by more than 20 percentage points,” said Brent Rasmussen, president of CareerBuilder North America. “The market remains highly competitive. Those graduating with niche or technical skill sets will be in a better position to find more opportunities in higher-paying jobs.”

Are companies hiring for physical therapy jobs in San Antonio?

Wednesday, May 1st, 2013

The Wanted Analytics took a closer look and pulled a lot of data to analyze whether or not people are hiring for physical therapy jobs in San Antonio, or in other cities around the U.S.

In the latest BLS report, the healthcare industry added 23,000 jobs, close to the 12-month average.

According to a blog on the company’s site, in March, there were just over 1 million jobs for healthcare related occupations, representing a 3% year-over-year increase in hiring. 75% over the jobs (approximately 754,000) were posted directly by employers, whereas staffing firms accounted for 25% of available healthcare job during March.

Not only did RN’s have the most available job ads, but demand is also up about 13% when compared to march of 2012. However, Critical Care Nurses had the highest year-over-year growth with 34% more jobs posted online this year than during last March.

The metro areas with the most healthcare jobs are New York, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, and Atlanta. Hiring in New York was up about 4% in March compared to last year.

The number of jobs in Dallas grew the most in March, though, up an incredible 32% compared to last year. With the increased competition among employers to attract healthcare talent in Dallas, the time-to-fill and difficulty-to-hire is likely to be higher than the US average.

Jobs for healthcare professionals remain online for about 53 days in Dallas – or 7.5 weeks.
