Industrial Machinery Mechanics

The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that employment for industrial machinery mechanics will grow faster than the average for all careers through 2022 because "increased adoption of sophisticated manufacturing machinery will require more highly skilled mechanics to keep machines in good working order." Some industries will have a greater need for mechanics than others. For example, employment is expected to grow much faster than the average in the following sectors: mining, quarrying, and oil and gas extraction; construction; wood product manufacturing; and professional, scientific, and technical services. Job opportunities will grow slower than the average in the following sectors: utilities, paper manufacturing, and computer and electronic product manufacturing.
