Airport Security Personnel
Employment for federal security screeners is expected to grow by about 5 percent from 2010 to 2020 (or more slowly than the average), according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Despite better pay, security screeners still have high turnover rates due to the high demands involved with the job. This turnover will continue to create new jobs in the future. While jobs as air marshals and security directors will not be as plentiful, there will always be a critical need for qualified and skilled individuals to protect airplanes and passengers from security threats.
