Overall employment of cooks is projected to grow 6% from 2022 to 2032, faster than the average for all occupations.

About 439,300 openings for cooks are projected each year, on average, over the decade. Many of those openings are expected to result from the need to replace workers who transfer to different occupations or exit the labor force, such as to retire.
