As we noted in November 2020, we consider the U.S. Occupational Handbook (OOH) as the best overall source for job-related information. Now, it includes updated Occupational Outlook Handbook material and a new video. And it Includes 2020 median pay by occupation.
As of April 2021: Updated Occupational Outlook Handbook Material
Earlier this month, we reported on U.S. Unemployment: How We Stand Now. Because of more job openings, it may be the right time for you to assess your career goals and compensation expectations. Which means obtaining as much current information as possible.
Once again, we look at the Management Occupations section of the OOH, updated on April 9, 2021:
Employment in management occupations is projected to grow 5 percent from 2019 to 2029. Faster than the average for all occupations! Thereby, resulting in about 505,000 new jobs. Employment growth is expected to be driven by the formation of new organizations. And the expansion of existing ones, which should require more workers to manage these operations. The median annual wage for management occupations reached $109,760 in May 2020. That ranked as the highest wage of all the major occupational groups.
About the Handbook
The OOH offers information on the hundreds of occupations that provide most of jobs in the United States. Each occupational profile describes the typical duties performed by the occupation. The work environment of that occupation. The typical education and training needed to enter the occupation. The median pay for workers in the occupation. And the job outlook over the coming decade for that occupation. Each profile is in a standard format that makes it easy to compare occupations, such as by projected employment change.
This 2021 video presents an overview of the Handbook’s features.
