    High Growth, High Wage

    Seven of the top ten fastest growing, high wage jobs are in business, marketing, finance, and sales.

    Business administration jobs that utilize lower-level skills will see declines. These include secretaries, administrative assistants, data entry keyers, and office clerks. However, there will still be many jobs available in these areas. For example, in 2026 it is projected that 2.37 million administrative assistants will be needed. (See link to chart for details.)
