Media and Communication

Employment in media and communication occupations is projected to grow 4 percent from 2019 to 2029, about as fast as the average for all occupations, and will result in about 46,200 new jobs. Demand for media and communication occupations (such as announcers, interpreters and translators, and technical writers) is expected to arise from the need to create, edit, translate, and disseminate information through a variety of different platforms.
