Workers in this group sell goods and services or connect buyers with sellers in a specific market, such as real estate or securities.
Overall employment in sales occupations is projected to show little or no change from 2021 to 2031; this limited change is expected to result in a decrease of about 164,500 jobs over the decade. Nonetheless, opportunities arise from the need to replace workers who leave their occupations permanently. About 1.9 million openings each year, on average, are projected to come from replacement needs.
