Employment of computer and information technology occupations is projected to grow 12 percent from 2014 to 2024(adding about 488,500 new jobs to the existing 3.9 million), thanks to a greater emphasis on cloud computing and the collection and storage of big data.

Employment of instructional coordinators is projected to rise 7 percent from 2014 to 2024.
