Occupational outlook

Most new jobs for office managers and clerks will be created at doctors' offices. The health care industry is growing rapidly and more people are needed to work and supervise staff. Schools, department stores and temporary worker agencies will also add many new jobs for office managers and clerks.

In Minnesota and nationally, the number of jobs in the banking sector is expected to grow about as fast as average through 2016.
