What does “no experience necessary” mean?
When you read “no experience necessary” or “no prior experience required” in a job posting, that means that the employer does not expect you to have any professional experience or prior knowledge in order to perform the job well. Although some of these positions may require a certain level of education, you needn’t have held a professional position in that field to apply for the job. Some additional resume builders that can benefit your application to an entry-level job may include internships, volunteer work or belonging to an organization.
What are some of the fastest-growing industries?
One of the top growing professional industries, and one that we know well at That’s Good HR, is healthcare. As our population of seniors continues to grow, the demand for healthcare support will increase dramatically. The COVID-19 pandemic has also heightened the need for healthcare workers. Some of the specializations within healthcare that are seeing the most growth are services for the elderly and disabled (44% growth), specialty therapists (34% growth), and offices for mental health professionals (31% growth). Let’s explore some of the fastest-growing jobs that require the least experience within healthcare and beyond.
Health education specialists and community health workers
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job outlook for health education specialists and community health workers through 2030 is 17%, which is much faster than the national average. These healthcare administration positions help to promote wellness within a community, and may also develop educational programs in order to teach individuals about conditions that may be impacting their health. Many of these health workers are employed in hospitals, but they can also find work with government agencies and nonprofits. Most health education specialist jobs need a bachelor’s degree, but community health workers often begin a position with just a high school diploma and can receive on-the-job training.
Medical billing and coding
Medical records and health information specialists have a job outlook with 9% growth through 2030. Although some medical billing or coding positions may prefer prior certification in the field, many hire individuals with no experience and will provide paid training in order for you to succeed on the job. Those who wish to work in medical billing should be very attentive to details and have good communication skills for speaking with patients, doctors and insurance providers.
Human resources specialists
Another fast-growing position that may work inside or outside of healthcare are human resources specialists. The job outlook from the Bureau of Labor Statistics is an expected growth of 10% through 2030. There are many options for placements in human resources, and this field is one in which we specialize with our Indianapolis employers. Although most human resources specialists are expected to have a postsecondary degree of some sort, the training and knowledge that is needed can typically be provided on the job, negating the need for professional experience. This is another position where good communication and people skills are a huge benefit, with duties including the recruitment and hiring of job applicants, training new hires in company orientation and handling compensation, benefits and employee records.
Accountants and auditors
Nearly every company needs someone to handle the financials, which is why the job outlook for accountants is holding steady at 7% through 2030. If you are interested in applying for a staff accountant job, your prospects may improve with a bachelor’s degree in accounting or certification (like becoming a licensed Certified Public Accountant). However, significant job experience is typically not required. Accountants generally maintain financial records for their employer, including the preparation of tax returns, using accounting systems, and ensuring that the company is complying with financial laws and regulations.
