HOT CAREERS TO 2020 IDENTIFIES OPENINGS, SALARY, AND REQUIRED EDUCATION
NASHVILLE – The TN Department of Labor & Workforce Development released today a report of Tennessee jobs predicted to be in demand for the next seven years. Labor uses Bureau of Labor Statistics information to compile the occupations as a tool for those who are entering the workforce or are changing careers. Tennessee’s Hot Careers to 2020 can be viewed online at http://www.tn.gov/labor-wfd/outlooks/statewide.pdf.
The Hot Careers to 2020 breaks down job titles by education and experience, average openings, salary, and personal skills like math, science and computer proficiency necessary to compete for a particular job.
This information was calculated by the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Occupational Employment Statistics program. The OES program collects data on wage and salary workers in nonfarm establishments in order to produce employment and wage estimates for about 800 occupations. The OES program surveys approximately 200,000 establishments nationally every six months, taking three years to fully collect the sample of 1.2 million establishments.
