If you like to take an analytical approach to things, you might appreciate looking at the latest jobs report and what industries are adding the most jobs, and where. Education and health, and business services lead the pack, with leisure and travel continuing to rank highly.

Meanwhile the government released its annual deep dive into the gender, race and ethnic breakdown of who holds various positions in workforce. The Wall Street Journal captured the report nicely with visuals that you can review here.

I encourage you to take a look at the government’s raw data as well. You’ll find a detailed list of job types. Consider using the data to fine tune your interests and efforts for a job search. Industries in robust hiring mode may present an opportunity. Job types that skew heavily male are likely looking for more women applicants.
