The tech industry, with its massive workforce of over 10 million, is changing as much as the jobs it takes to support that huge workforce.
The industry has also begun to automate some of the jobs once filled by human workers.
Fox News’ Matt Moore reports.
The numbers are changing quickly.
In February 2017, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) released a report that listed the top 20 industries in terms of the number of people employed in each occupation.
The top 20 were all tech-related: technology support occupations, IT support occupations and software developers and engineers.
The top 20 occupations in the tech workforce grew by almost 400,000 in 2016.
That was followed by construction, mining, food processing, food and beverage, transportation, and manufacturing.
The total number of occupations in 2016 grew by 7.5 percent, or 1.7 million jobs.
The numbers of jobs were up 5 percent, 1.4 million jobs, and the number was up by more than 5 million jobs per year.
The fastest growing industries are IT support.
The tech support occupations saw a 4.2 percent increase in jobs in 2016 compared to 2015, and they were followed by healthcare support, health care management, information technology, and financial management.
The biggest growth came from IT support and IT support related occupations.
In 2016, the IT support occupation grew by more 9 percent, accounting for 15.9 percent of all jobs in the US.
This was followed closely by the healthcare support and healthcare related occupations, which both grew by 8.2 and 5.5 million jobs respectively.
The second fastest growing industry in the year was IT support for software developers.
The IT support industry grew by 6.3 percent, up by 5.9 million jobs and the second fastest growth came in the healthcare industry, which was up 2.6 percent, which accounted for 2.5 of the country’s total jobs.
There were no tech-specific jobs that year, but in 2017 there were some jobs that had changed.
In December, Microsoft announced it was shifting its focus from technology to software development, and it added support positions for developers.
This move has helped bring in more talent.
Microsoft, for instance, is looking for software engineers in the United States and Canada.
It’s also looking for people who are fluent in multiple languages.
Apple, Google, Facebook, and others are also looking to bring in employees who have experience in programming.
There are also more opportunities for companies like Google and Facebook to get their tech teams together.
The trend is not going to last forever, however, as more and more companies are moving to automate jobs.
