Outlook

Demand for billing and account collectors is expected to decline. Automation has slowed growth in this occupation. In addition, consolidation in the collection industry in recent years has limited job growth.   

Most occupations need fewer workers when the economy is poor. However, bill and account collectors is just the opposite. When the economy is bad, fewer people can pay their bills. Thus, more companies need collectors to contact debtors.

Job prospects are expected to be excellent due to high turn over in this occupation.
