The Projected Employment Opportunities List contains information on occupations and training programs. The list has two parts. The first column lists the occupation's SOC (Standard Occupational Classification) code and title. A Statewide estimated annual mean wage is given for each occupation as well. The second part begins with column four, which lists the corresponding CIP (Classification of Instructional Programs) Code and title for the occupation. If an occupation has no corresponding CIP Code, it is noted.
This year's list is also broken into two different sections to help identify which occupations typically require some sort of post-secondary training. The U. S. Department of Labor's, Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) has assigned an education level to each occupation ranging form “No Formal Education” needed to “Doctoral or Professional Degree” required. For the purpose mentioned above, all occupations requiring “No Formal Education” or “High School Diploma or Equivalent” have been separated from the remainder of the list which includes all occupations that require at least “Some College.”
The following process was used to determine the Projected Employment Opportunities List.
Determining the State list:
Determining the Local Workforce Area lists (determined individually):
Please Note: An occupation is considered to be in demand in a Local Workforce Development Area if it is on the State list or the local area list.
Local areas will be required to submit proper supporting documentation. One or more of the following types of documentation will be accepted:
An occupation will be added to the State list only if the documentation supports the occupation statewide, and all ten local areas are in agreement that it should be added.
The Projected Employment Opportunities List has many uses. It is used by the Unemployment Insurance program to help determine a claimant's work search status. It is used in conjunction with the WDA Eligible Training Provider list. A training program must appear on the list to be WDA certified. It may be used by education planners to determine the possibility of establishing new programs. The list may also be used by individuals who are interested in knowing what training they need in order to have the best chance at finding a job.
