Central Oregon is Expected to Be a Leader in Job Growth Over the Next Decade

In central Oregon, the region's three counties are expected to add 12-thosuand jobs.

 

Regional economist Damon Runberg says the healthcare industry is expected to add the most jobs, but construction is next.

 

"If we're talking fastest growth, the industry that's actually expected to grow the fastest is construction.  Of coruse that is one that has had to dig out of the hole from the recession, so it's not too surprising to see fast growth in that indsutry."

 

Some of the other fastest growing occupations in central Oregon are software developers, home health aides and restaurant cooks.
