 So far, United States Department of Labor reports show an economy that is growing, but slowly, and hiring increased with higher wages. Temporary help services and health care continued to add jobs.

Employment in professional and business services continued to trend up in October (+32,000) and has grown by 562,000 over the past 12 months. Health care employment continued to expand in October 2011 (+12,000), following a gain of 45,000 in September. Offices of physicians added 8,000 jobs in October. Over the past 12 months, health care has added 313,000 jobs.

Private employers added 110,000 new jobs and according to the government's unemployment claims report weekly applications for unemployment benefits finally dropped this fall. The outlook is for about 120,000 new jobs a month for the next year, said Joel Prakken, chairman of Macroeconomic Advisers, the consulting firm that runs ADP's survey.

In addition various healthcare reforms are presently under consideration which may also affect the number of people being treated by healthcare providers. If you ever considered, or were ever interested in starting an allied health career, then now is the time.
