The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that the software industry will experience much faster than average growth, about 25 percent, through 2022. However, each job in the field has a slightly different outlook. Software developers will continue to see a high growth rate, 23 percent, through 2022, primarily due to the increased demand for software for new devices, such as tablet computers and smart phones. On the other hand, employment of computer support specialists may rise by 37 percent and that of information and security analysts is projected to grow by 44 percent.
