Understanding Employment Projections

Screen capture from video Understanding BLS Employment Projections featuring an illustration of a cab driving through a city and including the fun fact: BLS provides an occupation's or industry's projected employment change as a percentage or a number. Ooooh, shiny!

It's a tale of two non-existent occupations: Drone Dispatchers and Avatar Designers.

Drone Dispatchers is growing at ten times the rate of Avatar Designers.

But there will be ten times as many new jobs for Avatar Designers as there will for Drone Dispatchers.

A contradiction? Not at all. Find out how this is possible by watching the video below.
