What you can expect to experience while on the job
Employment of financial clerks is projected to grow 5 percent from 2018 to 2028, about as fast as the average for all occupations.

The availability of online tools is expected to slow future employment growth and has reduced demand for many of these occupations, including credit authorizers, checkers and clerks, procurement clerks, and new accounts clerks.
