Industry Outlook

The Occupational Outlook Handbook reports that employment of curators is expected to increase about 8 percent, or about as fast as the average for all occupations, through 2024; archivists are projected to experience growth of 7 percent); and museum technicians will have slower growth, 5 percent. As museums focus on education and service to the community, public programs and education staff are likely to be somewhat protected. Archivists, especially those with expertise in electronic records management, will be in demand as public and private institutions require organization of and access to records and information. Opportunities for curators will be fueled by continued public interest in science, art, history, and technology. However, museums and other cultural institutions are often subject to funding cuts during recessions or periods of budget tightening.
