Boomers are likely to land in growth fields that welcome older workers, according to a new Urban Institute study. Each of the 20 fastest growing jobs for aging Boomers is expected to see its workforce grow at least 20% by 2016. Workers in these fast-growing occupations are generally educated, have opportunities for part-time work, and face few physical demands on the job, the report says. Here are the 20 hot jobs: Personal and Home-Care aides, personal financial advisers, veterinarians, social and community service managers, miscellaneous entertainment attendants, surveyors, cartographers, and photogrammetrists, environmental scientists, registered nurses, animal trainers, instructional coordinators, locksmiths and safe repairers, postsecondary teachers, archivists, curators and museum technicians, social workers, pharmacists, counselors, business operation specialists, brokerage clerks and religious workers. Sounds like we will have many opportunities to pursue in our coming years!!
