The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that overall employment for secretaries will grow about as fast as the average for all occupations through 2018. Opportunities for secretaries who specialize in medical fields and in legal services will have faster than average job growth through 2018. Those secretaries who do not specialize in one area can expect slower than average job opportunities. Industries such as administrative and support services, health care and social assistance, private education services, and professional, scientific, and technical services will create the most new job opportunities. As common with large occupations, the need to replace retiring workers will generate many openings.
