More than 70,000 people apply for jobs online each year, according to a report released Tuesday by the National Center for Educational Statistics.
But while some employers use the data to fill vacancies, the job postings themselves are not always accurate, and some employers are not required to disclose the job candidates’ credentials.
That means many job seekers may not know the candidates’ qualifications, or may be less likely to apply to the positions.
The National Center’s new survey, which uses information from more than 1,500 job boards, provides an overview of what employers say they expect online doctoral candidates to know, what they hope they will find in an interview, and the steps they are taking to help recruit candidates with these skills.
The survey, called the Employers Survey on Online Degree Programs, was conducted on behalf of the National Association of University and College Employers.
“Online doctoral programs offer an unparalleled opportunity for people from all backgrounds to pursue a Ph.
D. and earn a degree that will help them achieve financial independence,” said John Hagerty, director of the Center for Education Policy.
“The National Association for University and Co-op Administrators and the National College Employer Council are committed to helping all of our employers and students learn more about online degree programs and the opportunities they offer.”
While online doctoral program programs often focus on a specific subject, such as healthcare, nursing, or veterinary medicine, employers say the online programs offer broad-based knowledge and skills that can be useful for all fields of study.
The programs also have the potential to increase the number of applicants who can be accepted, and many employers have developed online programs to address that need.
Employers have been able to offer many job openings online by offering training and networking opportunities for the first time, but a shortage of qualified applicants has made it hard for employers to fill the positions they have.
Online programs, which offer a range of degrees from the bachelor’s degree to master’s and doctoral degrees, are particularly popular among graduates who want to pursue jobs that require advanced knowledge.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, which administers Medicare and Medicaid programs, estimates that there are more than 3.5 million jobs in the healthcare field that require an advanced degree, including health care support workers, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants.
Employer training websites and other online programs, such the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AACU), are helping employers hire students who are qualified to meet those requirements.
ACU’s CareerBuilder, for example, has more than 8,000 job postings and more than 500 job opportunities to match the students with.
But that is just the beginning for employers looking for online programs.
“Our industry is undergoing a massive transformation and many of the employers are looking for a better way to get the job they need,” said Adam Bittner, president of the AACU.
“With an expanding workforce and an increasing number of employers looking to fill those positions, we are excited to offer online doctoral opportunities that give employers the knowledge and training they need.”
The National Association estimates that more than 10 million people are employed in the medical, nursing and veterinary industries, including more than 9 million in healthcare and a growing number of other fields.
The jobs in healthcare, such care providers, laboratory technicians and veterinary technicians, are often in low-paying, low-skilled jobs.
The unemployment rate for healthcare workers in 2016 was 6.4 percent.
Many healthcare workers, particularly those working in remote locations, struggle to find the jobs they need in the labor market.
The lack of qualified candidates has been a concern for the industry, especially among recent graduates.
The ACA requires employers to offer at least one paid position for those who are currently receiving healthcare benefits, and in the past few years, some employers have been stepping up to fill positions, such a hospital care provider who is looking to hire a nurse practitioner to assist with emergency room visits.
The American Medical Association, the country’s largest medical professional organization, has urged employers to keep a close eye on job postings.
“We have a responsibility to provide all our members with the skills they need to succeed,” said Dr. Richard B. Jones, AMA president.
“While the job search may be tough, the AMA’s goal is to ensure that all medical professionals are in the best position to do their jobs, which includes training, education, and certification.”
The AMA also says employers should be mindful of the availability of online programs for certain medical specialties.
“Healthcare workers, nurses, and other health care professionals should consider applying to a doctorate in an accredited program, even if the program has no direct connection to their job,” said Ann O’Neill, AMA executive vice president for policy.
The AMA is an independent trade association of more than 6,400 members that represents more than 400,000 health care organizations, including medical schools, hospitals, doctors’ offices, hospitals and
