Business Executives - Employment & Outlook

The table below provides information about the number of workers in this occupation in various regions. It also provides information about the expected growth rate and future job openings.

Employment

About 24% of business executives are self-employed. They work in almost every industry.

Major employers:

  • Local and state government agencies
  • Business management firms
  • Banks, savings and loans, and credit unions
  • Colleges and universities

Some government executives work only part of the year. They continue to work in the occupation they were in before they were elected.

Outlook

Demand is expected to decline for business executives. Competition for jobs will be very strong as there are a lot of qualified workers. Job growth varies by how well an industry is doing. Overall, more job openings should appear in service industries than manufacturing industries.

There should be very little change in the number of jobs for government executives. Few new government agencies are likely to be created. However, some new jobs may open at the local level. As the population grows, counties, cities, and towns may hire more managers.
