What Is a Job Prospect?

A job prospect is a possibility that a person will be able to get or apply for a job, according to Oxford Learner’s Dictionary. For instance, if someone says that he has a job prospect, it means that he knows of a job that might hire him.

It is important to keep job prospects in mind when making education decisions. For instance, some fields have more job prospects than others, and increased levels of education can increase the number of job prospects. People who are educated in engineering and the sciences tend to have more job prospects than those who are educated in the arts or humanities, according to the US News website.
