With the economy in a recession, health care has never been so hot. You voted the industry as the most secure job in 2008, and many health related establishments are hiring in 2009. Fortune highlights this fact in pointing out that 20 of the best companies had at least 350 openings as of Jan. 13.
Don't declare health care as an out-of-the-question career if you went for a Bachelor of Arts, not Science. Four of the 20 hiring companies are in the health business, and besides nurses, pharmacists, and therapists, these respected employers are looking for candidates to fill non-clinical positions. Administrative jobs, human resources and IT positions, service and supports jobs are all areas where help is wanted.
