Okay, so really–this is pretty cool. Who would have thought, even twenty years ago, that veterinary technologists and technicianss and operations research analystss 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 Utah

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 Utah 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 257 occupations in Utah.

Next, we ranked every occupation based on job growth, from 1 to 257.

At the end of the day, the data showed that veterinary technologists and technicianss will be the fastest growing job in Utah.

Why the fastest growing jobs in Utah 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 Utah is heading.
