Although IT technology and software development are expected to substitute some of the administrative support currently provided by office workers, many job openings are expected to come from the expansion of key industries and the need to replace secretaries and administrative assistants who leave the occupation. In the case of healthcare, these occupations are projected to grow in the coming decade at a rapid pace—21% from 2014-2024.​
