Job growth

In the last 12 years, employment in manufacturing has dipped 15 percent according to the Bureau of Labor statistics, but at the same time, employment in professional, scientific, and technical services will grow by 28.4 percent and add 1.9 million new jobs by 2014.

BLS also estimates that employment in computer systems design and related services will grow by 39.5 percent and add almost one-fourth of all new jobs created over the next five years.
