6 Fastest Growing Jobs in Business Services

The growth jobs in this business sector are an amalgamation of finance, law, entertainment and global business services, with expected growth rates between 22 and 33 percent. This represents the long-term shift from goods-producing jobs to service-providing jobs making up the majority of jobs in the U.S., a trend that is expected to continue. Service-providing industries are expected to account for approximately 4 million new jobs generated through 2015 and 2018, while goods-producing industries will continue to be troubled by ongoing job loss.

The jobs that will be added over the next few years will not necessarily be evenly distributed across major industrial and occupational groups. Changes in consumer demand, the impact of technology and workforce demographics will continue to contribute to the changing employment structure in the U.S. economy.

Here are some of the fastest growing jobs in the business services sector:

Jobs Growth %
Financial Analyst and Personal Financial Advisor 41%
Gaming and Surveillance Officer 34%
Court Reporter 25%
Actuary 24%
Interpreter and Translator 24%
