Fastest Growing Jobs In Arizona

Source: Wikipedia

Arizona is, and has been since its founding, a state in change. We’re growing, we’re progressing, we’re constantly on the move, it seems, financially, industrially, technologically, and of course, in the work force.

Some jobs that were popular fifty or sixty years ago are unheard of these days. Jobs that will be popular in fifty or sixty years — we may not even be able to guess.

But today, what we can guess are which jobs are going to be the most beneficial in one year, or even a few. Because we’ve crunched the data, and we’ve come up with a list of the fastest growing jobs in Arizona.

Here are the top 10 fastest growing jobs in Arizona, and below, we’ll show you the top 100:

  1. Miner
  2. Rod Buster
  3. Operations Analyst
  4. Roofer
  5. Cement Mason
  6. Hvac Technician
  7. Helper
  8. Interpreter And Translator
  9. Electrician
  10. Construction Worker

Okay, so really–this is pretty cool. Who would have thought, even twenty years ago, that brickmasons and blockmasonss and reinforcing iron and rebar workerss would be so in demand?

Not only does this mean we’re progressing in some important areas, but it also means you might just be able to snag yourself a more secure job.

We’ll get to the details of said jobs in a moment. First, here’s how we came up with this list.

How we determined the fastest growing jobs in Arizona in 2017

Every couple of years each state’s Department of Labor works in conjunction with the Bureau of Labor Statistics to compile projections for job growth by occupation. The government last completed this research in 2014 with projections going out until 2024.

Because this is America and the government never makes it easy, we had to gather the data from all the states individually to develop a master database.

We then identified the occupations in Arizona that are projected to have at least 1,000 workers in 2024 so that the jobs will still be relevant. This left us with data for 323 occupations in Arizona.

Next, we ranked every occupation based on job growth in 2017, from 1 to 323.

At the end of the day, the data showed that brickmasons and blockmasonss will be the fastest growing job in Arizona.

Why the fastest growing jobs in Arizona matter

Sure, it’s certainly interesting to see what sort of trends jobs will take over the next decade, because jobs are a great way to see what direction Arizona is heading.

But aside from being merely ‘interesting,’ it’s also good to note which jobs will be more secure, and more readily available now and in the coming years. If you’re looking for something that will last–take a look at this list.

From brickmasons and blockmasonss to reinforcing iron and rebar workerss, these jobs aren’t going anywhere anytime soon.

And now, here’s a look at the 100 fastest growing jobs in the Grand Canyon State for 2017.
