Career & Job Outlook 

The following website contains the excerpted material below using the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics: as the source. http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos096.htm#outlook 

Rapid job growth and
excellent job opportunities are expected (job opportunities outnumber job seekers). Most jobs will continue to be in hospitals, but employment will grow rapidly in other settings, as well.

Employment change.
Employment of clinical laboratory workers is expected to grow by 16 percent between 2008 and 2018, faster than the average for all occupations. The volume of laboratory tests continues to increase with both population growth and the development of new types of tests.

Technological advances will continue to have opposing effects on employment. On the one hand, new, increasingly powerful diagnostic tests and advances in genomics—the study of the genetic information of a cell or organism—will encourage additional testing and spur employment. On the other hand, research and development efforts targeted at simplifying and automating routine testing procedures may enhance the ability of nonlaboratory personnel—physicians and patients in particular—to perform tests now conducted in laboratories.

Although hospitals are expected to continue to be the major employer of clinical laboratory workers, employment is expected also to grow rapidly in medical and diagnostic laboratories, offices of physicians, and all other ambulatory healthcare services.

Job prospects.
Job opportunities are expected to be excellent because the number of job openings is expected to continue to exceed the number of jobseekers. Although significant, job growth will not be the only source of opportunities. As in most occupations, many additional openings will result from the need to replace workers who transfer to other occupations, retire, or stop working for some other reason. Willingness to relocate will further enhance one’s job prospects.
