stats on OR postions

Highlights of OR related jobs from the BLS:

  • there were about 62,000 OR jobs in 2002
  • 4 out of 5 government OR jobs are in the military
  • many private sector OR jobs are defense related
  • demand growth for these jobs is expected to be below average over the next 10 years
    • however, job prospects are good because supply is low and decreasing
  • most employers are looking for advanced degrees (combo degrees… OR and Computer Science, for example… are most attractive)
