Employment of computer and information technology occupations is projected to grow 13 percent from 2016 to 2026

According to The US Bureau of Labor Statistics’ “2017 Occupational Outlook Handbook,” there is a robust growth projected in IT-related jobs. They are projecting a 10 year growth of 13% through 2026, which is higher than the average for all occupations. Their projection of an additional 546,100 jobs in computer and information technology occupations exceeds the 7.4% growth projected for overall employment. They are attributing this increase to stem from cloud computing, big data and information security.
