Audiology and speech-language pathology are two of the 27 careers projected to have the highest employment growth by 2024, according to an analysis by Career Trends.
Audiology ranks at No. 11 and speech-language pathology at No. 25 in the analysis, which looked at Bureau of Labor Statistics employment projections for occupations with at least 10,000 employees nationwide with annual salaries of at least $35,000. (In the event of ties, the career with the highest current employment was ranked higher.)
Audiologists—whose annual salary averages $68,814, according to the survey—can expect a 28.6 percent employment increase by 2024 (from the current 12,250 to an estimated 15,754).
Speech-language pathologists—whose annual salary averages $64,851, according to the survey—can expect a 21.3 percent employment increase by 2024 (from the current 126,500 to an estimated 153,444).
