Worried about the security of the profession you are choosing, or may choose?

Today, let’s just talk about how a degree affects your future employability. Let’s look at trends projected for the coming years.

For 12 of the 20 fastest growing occupations, an associate degree or higher is the most significant level of postsecondary education or training.

Professional and related occupations will be one of the two fastest growing major occupational groups, and will add the most new jobs.

Over the 2006-2016 period, a 16.7-percent increase in the number of professional and related jobs is projected, which translates into nearly 5 million new jobs.

Almost three-quarters of the job growth will come from three groups of professional occupations—computer and mathematical occupations, healthcare practitioners and technical occupations, and education, training, and library occupations.

These professions will add 3.5 million jobs. Jobs almost always requiring a degree.

Let’s look at all this in much greater detail. The US-BLS has released it’s projections, related to professions and higher education.

So take a look— Jobs and Higher Education: the fastest-growing occupations (with largest employment increases), 2006 and 2016
