Conservators and Conservation Technicians
Employment of archivists, curators, and museum workers is projected to grow 11 percent from 2012 to 2022, about as fast as the average for all occupations, according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). Employment growth will vary by specialty. Competition for these desirable positions will be strong. The DOL also predicts that "jobs for archivists are expected to increase as public and private organizations require organization of, and access to, increasing volumes of records and information. The growing use of electronic records will cause demand for archivists who specialize in electronic records and records management to grow as well."
