North Dakota 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 North Dakota.

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

  1. Personal Care Assistant
  2. Emergency Medical Technician
  3. Software Developer
  4. Home Health Aid
  5. Registered Nurse
  6. Medical Records Clerk
  7. Loan Officer
  8. Volunteer
  9. Medical Director
  10. Certified Nursing Assistant

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 North Dakota 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 North Dakota 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 95 occupations in North Dakota.

Next, we ranked every occupation based on job growth in 2017, from 1 to 95.

At the end of the day, the data showed that personal care aideses will be the fastest growing job in North Dakota.
