Purchasing Agents

Employment of purchasing agents and buyers overall is likely to grow more slowly than the average for all occupations through 2022, according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). Computerized purchasing methods and the increased reliance on a select number of suppliers boost the productivity of purchasing personnel and have somewhat reduced the number of new job openings. But as more and more schools, state and local governments, health care organizations, and other service-related organizations turn to professional purchasing agents to help reduce costs, they will become good sources of employment.
