About Human Services

The profession of human services[edit]

Currently, the three major employment roles played by human services graduates include providing direct service, performing administrative work, and working in the community.[16] According to the Occupational Outlook Handbook, published by the US Department of Labor, the employment of human service assistants is anticipated to grow by 34% through 2016, which is faster than average for all occupations. There will also be excellent job opportunities for individuals with post-secondary degrees. (Wikipedia, 2014)
