These 10 occupations are projected to add a total of about 5 million jobs during the 1998-2008 period, nearly one-fourth of the projected job growth over the decade.
Occupations with the most job growth tend to have a large number of workers already.
Six of the 10 occupations—retail salespersons, cashiers, general managers and top executives, truck drivers, general office clerks, and registered nurses—each employed at least 2 million workers in 1998.
