Scope: Employment opportunities for retail salespersons are expected to be good because of the need to replace the large number of workers who transfer to other occupations or leave the labor force each year. Opportunities for part-time work should be abundant and demand will be strong for temporary workers during peak selling periods, such as the end-of-year holiday season.
Retail jobs are more than extra holiday money. Making up 11.6% of all U.S. workers, retail jobs are projected to grow by 11% through 2014. Employment stats for retail jobs are also at an all-time high, most popular retail jobs being salespeople. Retail jobs are morphing into retail careers.Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics
