Media and Communication
These workers use words and images to convey information and ideas.
Overall employment in media and communication occupations is projected to grow 6 percent from 2021 to 2031, about as fast as the average for all occupations; this increase is expected to result in about 68,600 new jobs over the decade. In addition to new jobs from growth, opportunities arise from the need to replace workers who leave their occupations permanently. About 115,800 openings each year, on average, are projected to come from growth and replacement needs.
