It's a teacher's job market with demand at an all-time high

Discover this month’s fresh insights on the most in-demand jobs right now.

In the market for a job? The CareerBuilder team has good news. According to February 2022 data, job inventory has experienced double-digit growth since last February in most states. And job listings on have nearly tripled over the course of the pandemic. The even better news? Current employees can expect to be valued even more in the year ahead. CareerBuilder CEO Susan Arthur says, “Knowing that we are expecting a 5-6% wage increase in the coming months, companies are getting creative in their approach to inflation and the current job market including ways of retaining their employees.”

The top five most in-demand industries are:

What other industries and opportunities continue to experience growth?

Education, Training, and Library Occupations

Demand in education, training, and library occupations has increased by 1055.8% since 2021. This suggests that schools and universities are in dire need of teachers as so many chose to leave the profession during the pandemic due to exhaustion. Despite the massive increase in job postings in this area, CareerBuilder’s resume-to-jobs candidate inventory remains positive.


Arthur notes, "As we see industries becoming largely affected by the results of the pandemic, we see the demand for nurses following a similar trend as the current state of COVID cases though the demand is still high and supply is still challenged. We recognize that other occupations like Community and Social Services are also experiencing significant demands of over 400% compared to last year.”

Work-from-Home and Remote

Do you dream of making yoga pants and pajama bottoms (paired with a business-appropriate shirt, of course) part of your everyday wardrobe? Work-from-home and remote positions continue to increase, and these positions attract seven times more applicants than other jobs, signaling that businesses understand that talent exists and can be successful from a variety of locations, and that these types of positions can be more attractive to top talent.
