Looking Ahead

Large Percentage of Jobs Are Projected in Business Administration Areas

34% of all jobs available in 2029 will be in management, business and financial operations, marketing, sales, and office and administrative support.

High Growth, High Wage

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

Declines in Lower-skilled Jobs Don’t Tell the Whole Story

While many business administration jobs are growing, those that utilize lower-level skills will see declines. However, there will still be large numbers of jobs available in these entry-level positions, such as secretaries, administrative assistants, data-entry keyers, and office clerks. For example, in 2026 it is projected that 2.37 million administrative assistants will be needed.
