Workforce Kentucky reports that health care support occupations should experience 24.9 percent growth between 2008 and 2018, which is classified as very fast growth, comparatively. Of the 25 fastest-growing occupations in Kentucky, a whopping 15 are health care-related jobs. The "Kentucky's Occupational Outlook to 2018" publication estimates that more than one-quarter of 2018 projected employment will be in two of the largest occupational groups: office and administration support or sales and related occupations. The same study indicates that obtaining a postsecondary degree offers increased career opportunities, better job security and higher earning potential. As of 2010, those with an associate degree or vocational training earned an average annual wage of $40,500, much higher than those without postsecondary training.
