Computer Support Specialists

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) predicts that employment of computer support specialists is projected to grow 12 percent from 2014 to 2024, faster than the average for all occupations.┬áMore support services will be needed as organizations upgrade their computers and software. Individuals will be needed to respond to the installation and repair requirements of increasingly complex computer equipment and software. However, a rise in cloud computing could increase the productivity of computer support specialists, slowing their growth at many firms. Growth will be highest at firms that provide cloud-computing technology. Employment of support specialists in computer systems design and related firms is projected to grow at a whopping 31 percent from 2014 to 2024.
