Most Sought After Jobs Report
The research analyzed over 25.3 million U.S. job vacancies advertised on Adzuna in Q4 2021, looking into the job titles with the highest application rates (calculated as clicks/ads) to reveal the roles most in demand in today’s jobs market.
Road Construction Supervisor positions are the most sought after U.S. job, with 176 job ads on offer in Q4 last year driving the highest application rates of any role and advertised salaries averaging $69,531. It reflects a growing interest in public sector jobs, with Engineering Services Manager and Drilling Engineer both featured within the top 30 most sought after jobs, with 1,311 and 163 job vacancies advertised in Q4. Petroleum Engineer roles also come in at number 14 on the list, with 141 vacancies and an advertised salary of $100,806.
The pandemic has also rejuvenated job seeker interest for domestic help jobs, now that COVID booster shots have been, and continue to be, distributed and people are becoming more comfortable as the pandemic starts to subside. Domestic Housekeeper is the 6th most sought after job in the U.S. in terms of clicks/ad rates, despite just 189 job vacancies advertised in Q4 and average advertised salaries of just $30,658. In addition, Live-In Nanny roles ranked 20th across 470 positions and Domestic Cleaner placed 24th with 33,382 job ads on offer in Q4.
Growing demand for academic jobs
The research also shows academic/career guidance positions are highly sought after as job seekers increasingly seek vocations where they can make a difference. Academic Advisor positions saw 2,401 job openings with average advertised salaries of $55,548, whereas Career Guidance Advisor jobs saw 2,595 job postings with average salaries of $40,496 in Q4.
Beyond these two further academic roles, Learning Development Coordinator (23rd) and Dean of Faculty (26th), also made the list with advertised vacancies of 739 and 341.
The highest paid role within the top 30 most sought-after jobs is Chauffeur, seeing average advertised salaries of $154,056 and 1,979 jobs available. Other high paid, high demand roles include ServiceNow Consultant, a role that requires developing software and tech solutions to meet customer needs. This role pays $143,033 and Drilling Engineer pays $126,788.
Paul Lewis, Chief Customer Officer at Adzuna, comments: “Many of the most sought after jobs in the U.S. are roles that are very hands-on. Public sector jobs are proving particularly popular, with Road Construction Supervisor roles the most clicked on job ads of the thousands of job roles on our site. We’ve also seen a surge in interest for roles such as Domestic Housekeeper and Cleaner as the domestic help sector climbs back up from thousands of jobs that were lost due to the pandemic. Another interesting trend is the rise in popularity for academic and career guidance jobs. After a turbulent two years, job candidates are reassessing what they want, and Adzuna data shows that money isn’t everything when it comes to filling a role.”
