The financial industry is crucial to our modern lives. There are so many positions across the business landscape that it’s easy to see why the industry is so expansive. However, some positions are growing faster than others are. Employees and employers can both benefit from understanding the rise and fall of particular career paths. Keep your eyes on these top three positions:
#3. Financial Analysts
Growth Projected: 23%, 54,000 jobs
America’s economic crisis of a few years ago showed us a lot about the complexities of investing and finance. Many companies lost huge amounts of money to poor investments and decisions. Financial analysts can guide businesses down the most profitable paths. Financial analysts earn good pay and average around $75,000 per year.
#2. Account and Bill Collectors
Growth Projected: 14%, 57,000 jobs
The economy is growing, but it’s still recovering from the market crash. Combine that with rising health care costs, and it looks like there will be a lot of unpaid bills in the country. While this is bad news for debtors, it’s good news for people who work as collectors. American workers also have a hiring advantage, since the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that domestic workers usually have better success negotiating.
#1. Bookkeeping, Accounting, and Auditing Clerks
Growth Projected: 15%, 259,000 jobs
There are always new rules to learn with financial reporting, as regulations and practices change constantly. The steady economic expansion is increasing the demand for qualified individuals in this field at a steady rate (15% is near average for all occupations). Most notably, the sheer volume of positions makes this industry more than worthy of our #1 spot.
