Study Predicts Strengthening Labor Market Over Next Four Years
A new study from CareerBuilder projects the workforce will grow by 4.4% for the remainder of 2013 through 2017, with the strongest growth at the two extremes of the wage scale — high-paying and entry-level positions. Jobs in the middle are expected to have the least growth.
CareerBuilder predicts health care and infotech as the occupations with the top prospects for growth. Job titles with maximum growth potential are software developers, registered nurses, network and computer systems administrators and market research analysts.
The fastest job growth is projected in several key metro areas — Austin, Houston and San Antonio, Texas, as well as Raleigh, North Carolina., Phoenix, Arizona, and Washington, D.C.
