Approximately 80% of job openings for the 2011-2020 period will arise from retirements, even though workers in this occupation are younger than in most occupations. Furthermore, although expansion demand is expected to be weak over the 2011-2020 period, it will be higher than it was over the preceding ten years.

New graduates will account for the majority of job seekers throughout the 2011-2020 period. In fact, new graduates will far outnumber job openings. However, in the past many workers left this occupation. This will continue to be the case, with the result that the balance between supply and demand will be maintained. As the skills required for this occupation only require high school education, many workers enter this occupation while searching for employment in other occupations which better match their career goals.
