Here’s Where Recent Grads Want to Work in 2019

first_imgTags:#business jobs#coding#coding education#Entrepreneurs#internships#LinkedIn#The Intern Group#work trends Follow the Puck Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces David Lloyd is the CEO of The Intern Group, an award-winning international internship program. Many graduates from May 2018 have found jobs, but some are still looking. That group of “those who are still looking,”  now coupled with the December 2018 graduates — all find themselves vying for similar positions. The fact is some industries are in more demand than others.Finding out where graduates plan to work in the future falls in well-rounded categories. One thing is clear: graduates are looking for internships to round out their experience.There is a pattern with placement requests according to The Intern Group — a company where students or recent graduates are placed in international internships. The data science team in The Intern Group compiled all applicants to understand which industries are currently the most popular.The Intern Group offers 25 career fields for interns to choose from when applying, combining that information with LinkedIn’s 2018 study to narrow down where recent graduates want to work this year. The data is comprised of roughly 32,000 student or recent graduate applicants from 2018. Each student had to prioritize an industry where they’d like to find work. Using that data and the LinkedIn results — here are the top five most popular industries.1. BusinessOur findings match up nicely with LinkedIn’s study in the business category. Roughly 12 percent of The Intern Group’s placement requests are in the field of business.Six of the top ten jobs wanted by recent graduates are business-related. Administrative assistant, recruiter, and business analyst are very much business jobs. The others such as account executive, research assistant, and account manager all are related to business, though could fall in other industries.Many students study business or complete internships at SMEs and then want to turn to a large company early in their career, which makes it no surprise that this is a top field where recent graduates want to work.2. Finance and AccountingFinance and accounting make up about 10 percent of The Intern Group’s requests. These students are studying or just finished a degree in mathematics, accounting, statistics, or economics and want to gain real-world experience.The LinkedIn study has a financial analyst as a top position, and it’s worth noting that many major financial companies are extremely sought after places to work. Places such as Lockheed Martin, Deloitte, and Accenture all recruit on-campus looking for top talent, though these positions are extremely competitive.3. EngineeringMany students feel the pull of Silicon Valley and want experience that part of business before heading somewhere else for a career. According to LinkedIn, software engineer and project engineers are two of the top ten most popular jobs for recent graduates.What comes as no surprise is that Amazon is the top place where recent graduates want to work. With Amazon opening new offices in New York City and Arlington, VA, many more graduates will get the chance to work at the technology powerhouse. A CNN study has Google as the top contender for job placement, with companies such as Microsoft rounding out the top ten.Many of applicants for available jobs have coding skills, and 9 percent of these graduates want an internship in an engineering position. These are popular picks since there is a minimal language barrier when coding.  Smaller offices are willing to give recent graduates real, hands-on experience that can add-up to a lot of value on their resumes.4. PR and MarketingThere are renowned communications departments in colleges across the globe, so it comes as no surprise that public relations and marketing are top requests. Out of the roughly 7 percent of graduate requests in these departments, some students wanting experience working on bilingual campaigns to add a competitive edge to their resume.The marketing coordinator position makes LinkedIn’s top ten, and many account executives and account managers also fall into the marketing realm. Many companies are looking to hire these tech-savvy graduates, as they now come with coding and language experience that can help create dynamic marketing campaigns.5. LawNot included on LinkedIn’s list is law — which is still a popular industry for recent graduates. The data here is matched by the surge in law school applicants. In 2018, the number of people applying to law school rose 8 percent. There are over 60,000 students that apply to law school each year.Many recruiters receive about 2,000 requests for law internships per year. Many students or recent graduates on the fence about practicing law want to intern at a law group to get a feel for a day-in-the-life. Some then choose to abandon a law career, and the others typically apply for law school.The competitive job landscapeThe job market remains competitive for recent graduates. While many students graduate with new, technological-based skills, snagging a job at Google, IBM, or Goldman Sachs is still tough. Though now that many colleges and universities require or at least encourage an internship before graduation, many students find themselves more prepared to enter the workforce.Image source What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … David Lloyd Trends Driving the Loyalty Marketing Industry Related Posts last_img read more

Trade Facilitation Task Force urged to focus on boosting competitiveness

first_img Electricity Cost of Service Study among the big agenda items at September 11 Cabinet meeting Recommended for you #MagneticMediaNews Related Items:#magneticmedianews Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppKingston, Jamaica, December 19, 2016 – Minister of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries, Hon. Karl Samuda, has charged members of the Trade Facilitation Task Force to explore strategies that will enable the country to become more competitive within the Caribbean region and globally.“We must collectively… concentrate immediately without delay on ways of reducing our charges at the port of entry… to remove bureaucracy from the process of both importing and exporting.   I happen to believe that an importer of raw material for the purpose of converting agricultural produce into agro-industry should be at the head of the line,” he said.Minister Samuda was addressing a meeting with members of the body held at the Ministry’s offices in New Kingston recently.  He urged them to be specific in their recommendations and set time frames for which the measures should be achieved. “By so doing, I think the task force can make the greatest contribution with all players on board,” he said.The task force, established under the National Competitiveness Council in the Ministry, is charged with improving the business environment in order to boost trade and enable the country to fully meet its obligations under the World Trade Organization (WTO) Agreement on Trade Facilitation.Minister Samuda said the work of the body is critical to achieving economic growth.  He urged that stronger linkages be forged with the critical Ministries and Departments, in order to achieve its objectives as well as redound to the overall benefit of the country.In the meantime, Minister Samuda said agro-processing “is the modern way to go” in order to retain the value of the goods that are produced locally.   He said the role of JAMPRO is critical in maximising the benefit from agro-processing.  “So, it is JAMPRO who must introduce our manufacturers to lucrative markets, not just to get investors to come in and invest but also to search out lucrative markets,” he argued.For her part, Minister of State in the Ministry of Finance and the Public Service, Hon. Fayval Williams, urged the task force “to leave no stone unturned” in ensuring that the country’s trade-facilitation processes and systems are modernised and in keeping with 21st -century best practices.  “This is critical if we are to benefit from the renewed global investor confidence and the improved ranking from international rating agencies,” she said.Trade facilitation is an integrated approach to reducing complexities and cost of trade transactions and ensuring that all these activities take place in an efficient, transparent and predictable manner.center_img ALERT # 2 ON POTENTIAL TROPICAL CYCLONE NINE ISSUED BY THE BAHAMAS DEPARTMENT OF METEOROLOGY THURSDAY 12TH SEPTEMBER, 2019 AT 9 PM EDT Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp The Luxury of Grace Bay in Down Town Provolast_img read more

The Breast is Best

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Jamaica, September 21, Kingston – Minister of Health, Dr. the Hon. Christopher Tufton, has reiterated calls for mothers to consider exclusive breastfeeding of their babies for the first six months of life in order to reduce infant mortality and morbidity rates.   He noted that appropriate breastfeeding practices have the potential to lower infant mortality in children five years old and younger by 14 per cent, while appropriate complementary feeding up to two years of age can prevent an additional six per cent of deaths among the age cohort.The Minister, who was addressing the National Breastfeeding Week conference and launch at the Jamaica Conference Centre, downtown Kingston, on Tuesday (September 19), said the target is for 50 per cent of infants to be exclusively breastfeeding at six months of age.   He noted that in 2005, the rate of exclusive breastfeeding at six months was 15.1 per cent, increasing to 23.8 per cent in 2011.“However, this is still well off course to meet the Global Nutrition Target of at least 50 per cent by 2025,” he said.Dr. Tufton said Jamaica is committed to reducing infant mortality and morbidity, and has agreed to, or has endorsed several international agreements and goals that are aimed at promoting and protecting infant and young child health.   He said that gains are being made, but there is still much work to be done to achieve the targets. He is urging persons to become informed about the benefits of breastfeeding.Research has shown that breastfeeding helps to reduce the risk of childhood asthma and obesity and non-communicable diseases (NCDs) later in life, such as diabetes and heart disease.   Long durations of breastfeeding also protect maternal health by helping to lower the risk of breast and ovarian cancers.Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Winston De La Haye, said National Breastfeeding Week is being observed from September 17 to 23 under the theme ‘Sustaining Breastfeeding Together’ and emphasises that “all sectors, all groups have a role to play in supporting breastfeeding”.He said the objectives of the two-day conference are to highlight the role of infant and young child feeding in the achievement of the sustainable development goals, share current elements of the benefits and impact of breastfeeding and effective strategies for the protection, promotion and support of breastfeeding.It is in keeping with World Breastfeeding Week 2017, observed by the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA) in August through partnership with World Health Organization (WHO), United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), along with civil society groups.Also at the launch were  Pan American Health Organization (PAHO)/WHO Representative in Jamaica, Bermuda and Cayman Islands, Dr. Noreen Jack; UNICEF Representative in Jamaica, Mark Connolly; and Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) Representative in Jamaica, The Bahamas and Belize, Dr. Gillian Smith.Release: JISlast_img read more

Natural Solutions Folds

first_imgInnoVision Health Media this week ceased publication of Natural Solutions magazine. The June 2010 issue will be its last.According to a note posted to the magazine’s Web site, the management team is “working to create an orderly shutdown of this business unit, and most of the staff of the magazine is no longer with the company.” The Web site will not immediately be shut down.“The decision to shut down Natural Solutions was made due to an extremely challenging advertising environment and generally weak market conditions for print publications,” the company says. “The magazine was also unable to secure additional funding to support its overhead.” When contacted by FOLIO:, InnoVision president and group publisher Rob Lutz said the company is in negotiations to potentially sell the magazine. He declined to say who the interest party(s) is or to offer any other specifics.It’s been a tumultuous few years for InnoVision, which filed for bankruptcy protection in November 2008. The future looked brighter for the company, and for Natural Solutions, the following April when the company was acquired for an undisclosed sum by a subsidiary of ACI Capital and American Securities—a pair of middle-market private equity firms. The deal effectively ended InnoVision’s Chapter 11 proceedings.“Our company really struggled the last several years,” Lutz told FOLIO: last year, describing the company as a $5 million business that had at one point been $7 million in debt.InnoVision says the shuttering of Natural Solutions will not affect the company’s other products—including books and medical journals.last_img read more
