Employment for college and university professors is expected to grow about as fast as the average for all careers through 2020, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. College enrollment is projected to grow due to an increased number of 18- to 24-year-olds, and from an increased number of adults returning to college. Opportunities for college teachers will be particularly good in private community colleges and for-profit institutions (although enrollments at many of these schools have declined in recent years). Retirement of current faculty members will also provide job openings. However, competition for full-time, tenure-track positions at four-year schools will be very strong.
