Fastest growing job sectors: What education do you need?

The Detroit Free Press – Kristi Tanner

“The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported in 2014 about 1 out of 4 jobs required a bachelor’s degree or higher. Two decades ago about one in five jobs required a bachelor’s degree or above. Between 2014 and 2024, jobs that require a master’s degree are expected to grow the fastest at 13.8%, followed by jobs that require a doctoral or professional degree at 12.2%, BLS reports. Doctoral and professional degrees require at least three years of post-bachelor’s academic study, By contrast, jobs that require some college but no degree are expected to grow 0.5%, and jobs that need only a high school diploma will grow nearly 4%. The fastest growing position that requires a doctoral degree is that of physical therapist, with a median annual salary of $84,020. The number of physical therapists is expected to grow 34% by 2024.”(more)
