Between 2015 and 2019, the total American workforce grew by about 8.7 million workers, with 4.4 million women and 4.3 million men securing employment.
Though female and male workers joined the workforce at almost equal rates, certain jobs have seen huge increases in female employment specifically, allowing for further opportunities for women to more easily cover their expenses and meet their savings goals.
In this study, we investigated the fastest-growing jobs for women in America. We used U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data to rank the four-year percentage growth by occupation from 2015 to 2019, the most recent year for which detailed occupational employment data is available.
We filtered out any occupation that employed fewer than 25,000 women in 2015. We also filtered out any occupation with “other” or “miscellaneous” in the title due to a lack of occupational specificity. We used the four-year percentage change in women employed in each occupation to rank all the jobs, from the highest percentage increase to lowest.
Following are the fastest-growing jobs for women.
