Looking for a new approach when discussing career paths with students? Use this breakdown of the fastest-growing jobs in each U.S. state to guide your conversations!

Sharing information on fast-growing job areas encourages students to think futuristically rather than focusing solely on job areas that are currently in high demand. By learning which jobs in each state are growing at the fastest rate, students can be exposed to up-and-coming career areas they may not have considered. Construction jobs are among the highest-growing jobs. As an example, the solar-panel installer is the fastest-growing job in eight different states, including California and Florida. Mathematical and technology-focused jobs are also prevalent; statisticians are the fastest-growing occupation in several states.
