Of all industry sectors, healthcare jobs will grow the fastest, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) said yesterday. In fact, healthcare and social assistance will see an increase of 5.6 million jobs over the next decade, many of which located in health practitioner offices.

Between 2010 and 2020, healthcare support occupations will grow 34.5 percent, personal care and services occupations will grow 26.8 percent, and healthcare practitioners and technical occupations will rise 25.9 percent. Office and administrative support occupations will see the most new jobs at 2.3 million, although at a projected slower-than-average growth of 10.3 percent.
