Within health care, employment in the individual and family services industry is expected to increase the fastest, with an annual growth rate of 3.3%. Some of the fast-growing healthcare occupations include nurse practitioners, physical therapist assistants, and physician assistants. Tangentially, there will be a great need for people to interpret the enormous amount of data to help business leaders make intelligent and informed decisions. The demand for new products, such as the Internet of Things, and for the analysis and interpretation of large data sets is also expected to contribute to the rapid growth in the employment of statisticians, information security analysts and data scientists.
Employment in restaurants, bars, travel, hotels and what is known as the “leisure and hospitality sector”, as a general sector, is expected to increase at the fastest rate. While most economists, Wall Street professionals, and nerds like me pay attention to monthly employment reports, the BLS has some interesting reading for proactive people who want to advance their careers. If you're starting your career or have been in the job market for a while, it's important to look to the future. This division, as you can imagine, has access to a wealth of information and statistics about jobs and careers.
Find out how you can use your skills to move toward a fast-growing career instead of being stuck in a job that isn't going anywhere.
