Employment Outlook

Careers in this cluster fall into the business and financial and the office and administrative support occupational groups used by the Bureau of Labor Statistics for occupational projections.

Business and Financial

Employment of business and financial operations occupations is projected to grow 7 percent from 2018 to 2028, faster than the average for all occupations, adding about 591,800 new jobs. Globalization, a growing economy, and a complex tax and regulatory environment are expected to continue to lead to strong demand for accountants and auditors. In addition, increasing usage of data and market research in order to understand customers and product demand, and to evaluate marketing strategies, will lead to growing demand for market research analysts.

Office and Administrative Support

Employment of office and administrative support occupations is projected to decline 3 percent, with a loss of about 608,100 jobs from 2018 to 2028. Technology is expected to substitute or supplant some functions that workers in office and administrative support occupations do.
