By Steve Loomis/Business Insider Psychology educators are facing the challenge of filling more than 1 million jobs in the next five years, but with each year that passes, the number of positions in the field grows.
In addition to being more competitive, these jobs are more lucrative than ever, and as the workforce becomes increasingly educated, this will become a larger portion of the jobs market.
In the coming five years we will see a rapid increase in the number and the amount of job openings in psychology, according to the National Science Foundation.
In 2020, there will be more than 12.5 million jobs listed as psychology positions across all 50 states, and the federal government expects this number to increase to 16.3 million jobs by 2025.
According to a new report by the National Institute of Mental Health, the shortage of psychologists is an epidemic, with the number being over double what it was in 2007.
In addition, the average age of psychologists has increased from 37.4 years to 41.9 years.
The demand for psychologists is also expected to rise.
The number of people employed as psychologists has more than doubled since the early 2000s, from 1.6 million to 2.3, according the report.
The report, which analyzed job listings from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, also noted that as more students enter college, and students are trained to become psychologists, there is more demand for those positions.
This, in turn, is expected to lead to more hiring.
In order to fill the growing number of jobs, psychology schools must find the right candidates.
There are currently more than 50,000 psychology teachers employed across the country, but many of them are finding it difficult to find the candidates they need.
Psychologists are not the only ones facing a challenge.
Facebook is hiring teachers, but this is not the same as hiring a full-time teacher, according a spokesperson for the social media giant.
According a spokesperson, Facebook is “actively looking to hire more people to help with teaching” and the company is “continuing to recruit people as it becomes more difficult to fill our positions.”
However, there are some jobs available in psychology that Facebook does not need.
In fact, Facebook has a very large pool of teachers that it does not currently have an obligation to hire, but is in need of people to assist with teaching and research.
According the spokesperson, the company does not hire or fire teachers.
According to the spokesperson Facebook is working to create a position for each teacher that is a “full-time position that has a proven track record and will be a great fit for our community.”
For now, there has been no word from Facebook on how many positions the company plans to open.
However, Facebook’s announcement has already been widely discussed online.
The company is now trying to fill those positions, but the reality is that the number may only get bigger.
