It’s no secret: If you want to find a job posting in today’s market, you have to look online.
New research from Georgetown University shows which industries post the most job openings online, and how much those jobs pay on average.
Of the 3.7 million jobs that open each month, 2.7 million of them are posted online, according to the study. If you have a bachelor’s degree, 80 percent of the job openings for your level are posted online. For people with a lower education level, fewer than 50 percent of those job listings are online.
So, where are the jobs? Fittingly, they are in technology.
The most in-demand jobs posted online are in application software development.
Within the information-technology field, software-developer and computer-systems-analyst positions are most prevalent.
For college graduates, the profession with the most overall demand online is in managerial and professional offices, making up a third of online job postings.
Those jobs include financial managers, lawyers, and accountants.
Jobs in technology, engineering, and mathematics occupations account for 28 percent of online job postings. Surprisingly, though, jobs in this field account for only 11 percent of college employment in the United States.
Together, these two professions represent 61 percent of online ads — some 1.1 million openings in the second quarter of 2013.
So, while many of these jobs for college grads are posted online, one of the figures mentioned earlier should stick out to job-seekers: Jobs that require just a high school degree are not readily available online. That makes it more difficult for these people to find work.
It’s not like Americans with just a high school degree don’t have Internet access. Only 20 percent of Americans have no Internet in their homes. But it does mean high school grads won’t be able to use the Internet to find work, unlike people with higher education.

Perhaps Donald Trump can take a plebiscite to solve this whole messy immigration thing. At a Fox News town hall with Sean Hannity last night, Trump essentially admitted he's "stumped," turning to the audience and asking: “Can we go through a process or do you think they have to get out? Tell me, I mean, I don’t know, you tell me.”
Donald Trump "nearly quintupled the monthly rent his presidential campaign pays for its headquarters at Trump Tower to $169,758 in July, when he was raising funds from donors, compared with March, when he was self-funding his campaign." A campaign spokesman "said the increased office space was needed to accommodate an anticipated increase in employees," but the campaign's paid staff has actually dipped by about 25 since March. The campaign has also paid his golf courses and restaurants about $260,000 since mid-May.
Donald Trump probably isn't taking seriously John Oliver's suggestion that he quit the race. But he has canceled or rescheduled rallies amid questions over his stance on immigration. Trump rescheduled a speech on the topic that he was set to give later this week. Plus, he's also nixed planned rallies in Oregon and Las Vegas this month.
Donald Trump's Fox News brain trust keeps growing. After it was revealed that former Fox chief Roger Ailes is informally advising Trump on debate preparation, host Sean Hannity admitted over the weekend that he's also advising Trump on "strategy and messaging." He told the New York Times: “I’m not hiding the fact that I want Donald Trump to be the next president of the United States. I never claimed to be a journalist.”
