A new study from CareerBuilder finds that home health jobs in San Antonio and other cities are expected to rise dramatically in the coming years. It is the job with the highest project growth, followed by market research analysts and medical secretaries.
In addition, the study found that job growth in the United States from 2013 through 2017 is projected to grow at a rate slightly faster than the preceding post-recession years.
The report from CareerBuilder and Economic Modeling Specialists International (EMSI) explores projections over a five-year period by occupation, wage group and education level for the U.S. and the 52 largest metropolitan areas.
Other findings include:
The U.S. workforce is projected to grow 4.4 percent from 2013 to 2017 — faster than the 2009-2013 period (3.5 percent), but still down from the pre-recession 2003-2007 period (5.8 percent).
· At 5 percent, high-wage occupations ($21.14 per hour and above) are expected to grow faster than low-wage ($13.83 and below) and medium-wage ($13.84-$21.13) occupations — 4.7 percent and 3.3 percent, respectively.
· 75 percent of the 165 occupations expected to lose jobs nationally are in the middle-wage category.
· Occupations requiring college degrees are growing significantly faster than those that do not. Associate degree and master’s degree occupations are each projected to grow 8 percent, while jobs requiring short-term, on-the job training trail at 4 percent. Bachelor’s degree jobs are projected to grow 6 percent.
· 23 of the 52 largest metro areas will outpace the projected national rate of job growth, led by three in Texas (Austin, Houston and San Antonio); Raleigh, NC, and Phoenix, AZ. Washington, D.C. is poised to have the largest share of new jobs coming from the high-wage sector, but San Antonio is expected to have the fastest rate of high-wage growth.
