Tapers

This is the occupational profile for the career that you have selected. All of the cities that are listed have shown an uptrend both in workforce numbers and salary amounts in recent years.

Also, be aware that in cities where the workforce is low, there may have been a huge percentage growth even when there has been a small increase in workers. Always look at the growth and see if the workforce numbers are also high. This will help you find the places with a truly promising job outlook.

If you need more detailed information, we invite you to buy the Occupational Outlook Handbook 2002-03 Edition, compiled by the U.S. Department of Labor.
