As a new school year gets underway in earnest,, the worldwide leader in successfully connecting people to job opportunities and flagship brand of Monster Worldwide, Inc. (NYSE: MWW), released new survey results detailing workers’ views within education and training sectors. Only 23% of teachers and training workers surveyed by Monster were satisfied with their job, while 47% expressed dissatisfaction – notable statistics for a profession responsible for educating the world’s future.

Of the surveyed participants, only 31% noted confidence in finding future work within their profession, placing them 10 th out of the 11 professions surveyed, followed only by Clerical/Administrative professionals. Similarly, over three-quarters (78%) of teachers and training professionals agree that it is more challenging to find a job now than it was a year ago and 80% report that employers aren’t willing to provide higher compensation in comparison to a year ago.

“We’re continuing to see the impact of economic challenges on education and training occupations. When compounded with the fact that the majority of these job seekers feel it is more challenging to find a job and the market is saturated with qualified people in their area of expertise it is understandable why these candidates are among the least confident in finding a new job,” said Jeffrey Quinn, Vice President of Monster’s Global Insights. “The good news is that we’re seeing pockets of demand. Elementary and secondary schools as well as colleges and universities are hiring for open roles.”

The top occupations within the Teacher and Training sector include: Preschool Teachers, Secondary School Teachers, and Teachers Assistants in cities such as New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Washington D.C.
