Beyond.com Sees Good News For Entry-Level Jobseekers

The largest percentage of online job postings are for entry-level positions, reports Beyond.com.

Beyond.com is a network of niche job boards and in its Fourth Quarter 2010 Career Trend Analysis Report, released yesterday, the company found that 78 percent of the positions it surveyed were for candidates with one year of experience or less. This means that entry-level positions gained 13 percent marketshare over the same postings a year ago, Beyond said.

More than 70 percent of industries have more open jobs posted this year than they did a year ago at this time, but the top ten industries for entry level jobs were:

1. Clerical & Administrative
2. Sales & Sales Management
3. Merchandising, Purchasing & Retail
4. Arts, Entertainment & Gaming
5. Customer Service
6. Management & Business
7. Accounting & Finance
8. Information Technology
9. Healthcare & Medical
10. Engineering & Architecture

“As we continue to come out of the recession many companies will have a tendency to build from the bottom up, hence the increase in available entry level jobs,” Beyond.com CEO Rich Milgram said in a statement. “One challenge the class of 2011 may encounter is the fact that they will have to compete with grads from previous years as there are several entry level candidates from previous classes still looking for jobs, however these revived opportunities seen at the entry level are a good indicator that the economy as a whole will continue to grow.”
