Indiana Employment Outlook Projections

Projecting the number and types of jobs needed in the future can help workers, students, teachers and businesses get an idea of what’s expected ten years out. Projections can give insight into the occupations with the highest number of jobs as those with the fastest growth rate.

Among the occupations that are growing fastest are wind turbine techs, software developers and health care professionals. Those with both high demand and higher wages include managers in construction, medicine and general operations as well as accountants, physicians, electricians and plumbers. And of course, there are occupations that are declining – projectionists and cashiers, payroll clerks and tellers, meter readers and computer operators.

The projections provide important insights for career planning and job changing alike – use them to plan ahead for the future of work.
