Magic is a performance art, and like other performance artists, magicians face an uncertain employment picture. If the economy is strong, there will be a greater demand for magicians because people will have more disposable income to spend on entertainment. If the economy is weaker, magicians will have greater difficulty finding work. In short, there will continue to be employment, though these opportunities will often be for part-time assignments. Because magicians must compete with a growing number of entertainment options, employment in this field is likely to grow about as fast as the average. Jobs in the business arena should continue through the next decade and create some well-paying opportunities for those with the skills and versatility to entertain business people.
