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.
