Employment of machinists is expected to grow about as fast as the average for all careers through 2022, according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). Despite the prediction for average growth, the DOL predicts that job opportunities for machinists will be excellent because "manufacturers will continue to rely heavily on skilled machinists, as they invest in new equipment, modify production techniques, and implement product design changes more rapidly." The increased use of computer-controlled machine tools improves efficiency, but machinists will still be needed to set up, monitor, and maintain these automated systems.
