Do You Really Want to Pick That Major? A New Study Predicts Future Most-Wanted Jobs

If you’re an occupational therapist, podiatrist, or audiologist, getting a job in the next decade will be simplicity itself. You’ll have a much harder time, though, if you’re a movie projectionist, typist, food prep worker, or dancer.

That’s according to a study released today by the Conference Board, covering 464 occupations in the U.S. that range from sewage plant workers (in demand) to judicial law clerks (not in demand). It covers the period from 2012 to 2022. A summary of the report is available here. Reading the whole report will cost you $395 if you aren’t a Conference Board member.
