Job Outlook

The Graphic Communications industry anticipates around 50,000-60,000 employees will be hired each year through 2018, due to baby boomers retiring, along with changes in workflow, production, and new technologies.

The industry will need drivers, bindery workers, sales and customer service people, computer operators, graphic artists, chemists, machinists, warehouse operators, mechanics, production supervisors, and all forms of sales, technology and management employees.

Although total employment is stable there is ample opportunity for career growth. Individuals who have a high school education can start out as trainees and learn on the job for many positions. With time they can advance to lead positions and into supervisory positions. Graphic communication jobs are located in every state, and in every type of community, from rural areas to the largest cities.
