Whether you’re a job seeker, student, or counselor, we have tools and information to assist you in exploring new career opportunities, understanding wage and occupation trends, and accessing job training programs.

Demand Occupations

Demand occupations are those that are projected to have a large number of job openings in the future. These occupations offer potential employment opportunities, regardless of factors such as salary or educational requirements. At our local Board, we identify demand occupations based on above-average projected annual job openings.

Targeted Occupations

Targeted occupations are a subset of demand occupations that meet additional job quality criteria set forth by our local Board. These occupations not only offer good employment growth prospects but also competitive wages. They are the types of jobs for which our Board can allocate resources for training through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) programs.
