Employment by Occupation

Occupational employment projections were collected from the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (FDEO). The FDEO provides employment projections from 2022 through 2030. Furthermore, we use an education and training assignments crosswalk provided by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics to match occupations with typical education needed for entry, work experience in a related occupation, and the typical on-the-job training needed to attain competency in the occupation.

The top five occupations with highest expected growth from 2022 to 2030 include Restaurant Cooks (839 employees), Construction Laborers (455 employees), Retail Salesperson (403 employees), Home Health and Person Care Aides (388 employees), and Janitors and Cleaners (Except Maids and housekeeping) (384 employees). All of these occupations require less than five years of experience.

The top five occupations with the highest expected growth from 2022 to 2030 requiring five or more years of experience are General and Operations Managers (287 employees), Financial Managers (77 employees), Chefs and Head Cooks (77 employees), Computer Information Systems Managers (26 employees), and Marketing Managers (17 employees).
