The 2008-18 Job Outlook in Brief
Occupational Outlook Quarterly, v54 n1 p2-6 Spr 2010
Some occupations will fare better than others over the 2008-18 decade. Although it's impossible to predict the future, one can gain insight into job outlook by analyzing trends in population growth, technological advances, and business practices. This insight is helpful in planning a career. Every 2 years, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) projects employment prospects for hundreds of occupations in the" Occupational Outlook Handbook." This article presents a table summarizing that information so readers can compare occupations at a glance. It discusses what BLS projections mean, why employment is changing, and how BLS makes its projections.
