Where the jobs are: 2016-2026 edition

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has just released its employment projections for the decade 2016-2026. It’s a highly detailed forecast: more than 1,000 specific job categories are included.

Computing occupations once again dominate STEM, accounting for 66% of all job growth, and 60% of all job openings (whether due to growth or to replacement).

BLS projects a growth of 546,000 computing jobs over the decade, and 3,475,000 job openings.
