While a college education can provide workers with career opportunities, it’s not required for many good job options. Often, employees can get the skills they need for a job that pays well and leads to a fulfilling career through vocational training or an apprenticeship.
CareerBuilder published a new list of 10 jobs that:
- pay about $20 or more per hour
- have grown over the last five years
- are projected to grow over the next five years
- don’t require a college degree
The following includes historical and projected growth rates and average hourly earnings for in-demand occupations. It also provides the typical entry-level education requirement, though this may vary depending on the employer.
What Does That This Mean For You?
To thrive, your organization likely needs to be able to attract, hire and retain top talent in many of these roles. Not an easy task since hiring and retaining the best talent is as tough as it has ever been.
Try following these three recruiting tips for creating a desirable hiring process in-demand candidates will want to work for:
- Simplify your application process: You don’t like wasting time. And neither do your candidates. Having to re-input personal information and resume details only deters top candidates from applying.
- Brand your company: The recruitment process becomes exponentially easier when job seekers want to work at your company. To create that level of interest, you need to brand your company as a place in which great talent want to work.
- Build strong talent networks: Having a pipeline of talented individuals who have already expressed interest in your organization speeds up the hiring process considerable. Building a talent network involves developing—and nurturing—relationships with candidates long before relevant jobs are posted.
