    Default U.S. News has plowed through hundreds of careers, looking for the jobs with the best

    outlook in this recessionary economy and beyond


    Decided to post this article here in hopes that it may help someone who may be considering going back to school, or is considering which career path to chose. Not surprised, but disappointed that construction is NO WHERE on this list. Very surprised that teachers were not on the list given all the talk of providing US students with a better education. Thrilled that locksmithing made the list since DS2 wants to be a locksmith.

    This is an addition to original post as I thought it may be helpful to know what type of education to avoid due to higher unemployment rates in these job sectors. Updated May 2010

    High Unemployment Industries Means More Jobs Competition

    Unemployment job numbers across the United States is still hovering around 10 percent. If you are looking for a job, there is still ample jobs competition across the board. But there are some industries where the job competition is higher. If you were previously employed in these industry sectors, it means it will be much harder to find any work. According to the US Bureau of Labor, here are the unemployment rates, ranging from highest to lowest in these industries.

    Construction
    Durable Goods Manufacturing
    Oil and Gas Extraction and Mining
    Transportation and Utilities
    Nondurable Goods Manufacturing
    Leisure and Hospitality
    Retail and Wholesale Trade
    Financial Sector
    Information
    Professional and Business Services
    Government Jobs
