Employment Firm Workers
The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that job opportunities for human resources workers will grow by 55 percent in the employment services industry through 2020, or much faster than the average for all careers. Recent legislation in various aspects of employment, including family leave, health care, and equal employment opportunity, will create a demand for human resources specialists of all kinds. Employment opportunities will be greatest in private industry, especially personnel supply firms. Employers are now more aware of the benefits of using employment firms to find part-time and temporary workers to help fulfill short-term assignments or to launch new projects. Because of the increased use of computerized job matching and budgetary considerations, however, the demand for state employment workers has lessened.
