Healthcare jobs in Kansas City are booming


So by now we are all tired of hearing about the recession.  Pay-freezes, intense job pressure, layoffs, a never-ending search for a new job, blah, blah, blah.  Well there is some good news in one particular corner of the job market in Kansas City: healthcare jobs are booming.  In fact, according to the latest figures from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, health care jobs in the local area were the only industry to show a gain in the number of jobs compared to when the recession began in 2007.  The study compared the number of jobs across 15 industries.  13 of the 15 industries lost jobs since the recession began.  Many of these industries were down considerably.  However healthcare jobs in Kansas City had the most significant amount of gain with nearly an 11% increase.  Equally important, this trend shows no signs of slowing down.  Whether it is medical assisting, massage therapy, or personal training, a career in allied health offers a promising future.
