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 in business and financial operations occupations is projected to grow 5 percent from 2019 to 2029, faster than the average for all occupations, adding about 476,200 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 in office and administrative support occupations is projected to decline 5 percent, with a loss of about 959,700 jobs from 2019 to 2029. Technology is expected to substitute or supplant some functions that workers in office and administrative support occupations do. Despite projected employment declines, however, openings are expected to result from the need to replace workers who transfer to other occupations or exit the labor force, such as to retire.
