    Who's Hiring Non-College Grads?

    New Survey Results Reveal Hottest Fields

    Industrial, Office Services Top List



    OKLAHOMA CITY, Nov. 4, 2015 - Express Employment Professionals today released new survey results revealing the hottest fields hiring the most non-college grads. 

    In a recent poll of Express franchisees, respondents were asked, "What are the hottest fields hiring the most non-college graduates?"

    Industrial topped the list at 90 percent, followed by office services (71 percent), sales and marketing (63 percent), home help (38 percent), and health care (36 percent). Full results are below.

    "Today's conventional wisdom suggests that the path to a rewarding career must run through a four-year university. In reality, we're finding out that many sectors are hiring non-college grads, from industrial to manufacturing, healthcare to IT," said Bob Funk, CEO of Express, and a former chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.  

    "For those who haven't graduated from college, these are the areas with the best job prospects. Keep that in mind not only when searching for a job but also when looking for training and certification opportunities available to non-college grads."




    The survey of 134 Express Employment Professionals franchisees was conducted in July 2015.
