Yahoo has done a new report that indicates that while some jobs may not be so great, these five are thriving and need college grads. So if you happen to be in school, and studying these, you may be in luck in terms of finding a job.

According to the article, an undergrad adviser from Eastern Washington University says that a Bachelors degree is the first step to getting noticed by employers looking to fill ‘high-quality’ positions. She adds that it’s getting so that you can’t get any sort of job that isn’t menial without a degree these days. So which jobs are currently hot for grads?

1. Accountant

The department of labor projects that the need for accountants and audits will increase by 16 percent by 2020 – which means almost 200,000 new jobs in that market. They say that while you may be able to do some of the work, without a degree you won’t be able to do more than a junior accountant or clerk.

2. Human Resource Specialist

According to the department of labor the field for HR specialists could grow by 21% by 2020, and the reason why is because all businesses (small or large) need an HR department. You need to be up on current laws, and knowledgeable of everything that is important to both the employee and the employer.

3. K-12 Teacher

It sounds surprising, but according to the department of labor we could see a growth in the teaching field by almost 500,000 jobs by 2020. Maybe it’s population thing, but without a bachelors degree you can not teach, it’s that simple.

4. Software Developer

If you are studying software development, than you are in luck. If you are thinking about studying it, than go for it! They project a jump in this field by 30% by 2020.

5. Medical and Health Services Manager

These jobs within a medical office will become increasingly important, and they say it’s because of our aging population in the United States. So what do you need to get your foot in the door of this field? You need to study health administration , because you’ll be the one running the office.
