The Fastest-Growing Workplaces


The job market is always changing but finding a job that can last long enough to become a career is a tough feat. However, the Bureau of Labor Statistics has a very handy tool called the Occupational Outlook Handbook which can guide you when you’re thinking about what career you want to have in the future. Here is a quick breakdown of the fastest-growing jobs in the country right now.

The Health Industry

As the old get older, many will have to be looked after and taken care of, sometimes by their family but other times by healthcare professionals. That is the primary reason why the health industry is projected to have massive growth in the coming decades. Most of these jobs will require a lot of training and schooling, but the pay will be good and a lot of places will be looking to hire you and keep you hired. Still, there are some health-related jobs that don’t require a lot of education or experience, but the pay will be less than those that do. Some of the fastest-growing jobs in the health industry are:

  • Registered Nurses
  • Physical Therapists
  • Personal Care Aides
  • Medical Secretaries
  • Medical and Health Services Managers

The IT Industry

The IT industry is still growing strong as the world becomes more and more dependent on the internet and all its wonders. Like the health industry, education and experience will give you jobs in IT that will pay more, but that doesn’t mean you have to be a coding wiz to break into the industry and make good money. Some IT jobs that are projected to grow very quickly in the near future are:

  • Web Developers
  • Computers and Information Systems Managers
  • Database Administrators
  • Information Security Analyst
  • Computer User Support Specialists

Physical Labor

Jobs that require physical labor are hard work, but according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, they’re going to be growing fast in the near future too. Unlike the health or IT industry though, many of these jobs do not have high education requirements. Some of these jobs will require an apprenticeship or some on-the-job training while others won’t. It follows that some of these jobs pay well while others won’t. Some of these jobs include:

  • Plumbers
  • Heating, Air Conditioning, and Refrigeration Mechanics and Installer
  • Chefs and Head Cooks
  • Flight Attendants
  • Construction Managers

This was just a sample of what the Occupational Outlook Handbook has to offer, so feel free to explore it some more. You can sort jobs by their estimated salary, their projected growth rate, and the amount of education or training you need for them. As this post shows, general contractors are here to stay and are growing as fast as the IT industry. If you want to be a part of that growth, feel free to contact us today.
