In spite of concerns over the low number and low quality of jobs being created in the country, data from EmploymentCrossing shows that there are plenty of hitech and well-paying jobs being created.



There are over 245,000 IT jobs available making it one of the largest skilled job openings on the site.

As Americans head into polling booths today, over the last two days there have been questions over not just how many but what kind of jobs have been created over the last four years. President Obama boasts of creating 5.4 million private sector jobs over the last 27 months. Public Sector job losses would have abated if Senate Republicans hadn’t filibustered the American Jobs Act Last October. At least two million jobs would have been saved or created according to the Center for American Progress.

So what are these private sector jobs? News site Business Insider in an article posted on Monday says that the jobs recovery has been built on temp help, waiters and bartenders. The site reports that the 1.1 million new jobs in these industries account for the 30 percent growth shown in payrolls seen since January 2009.

The New York Post in an article titled “Obamanomics = never enough jobs” says that at the rate at which jobs are being created according to the October jobs report, it will take over 11 years to close the “jobs gap”. The paper says that the recovery has not yet created enough jobs to make up for what was lost in the recession.

But jobs data from EmploymentCrossing.com shows that not only are there plenty of jobs in the country but also jobs for highly-skilled Americans. The site has been able to track down 2 million job openings. Although hospitality jobs account for a big chunk of the jobs with over 140,000 available nationwide, there are also many jobs in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields. There are over 245,000 IT jobs available making it one of the largest skilled job openings on the site. Engineering jobs with 160,000 openings and accounting jobs with 72,000 positions available top out the top 15 categories on the site. The site also has tracked down over 22,000 jobs that pay over $100K.
