Kitsap County Data Predicts a Distinct Trend in Jobs Available by the Year 2005!

What kind of jobs will be available for friends and myself the year I graduate?? 

“Between the years 1998 and 2005, Kitsap and Mason counties are projected to have 11,692 job openings, or 1,461 each year.  More than 60% of job growth in Washington State will be in occupations that require training, education, or both beyond high school.  The number of people working in professional and technical areas will grow faster than those working in other occupations.  In fact, almost one in four of all new jobs will be in these areas. Almost all of these occupations require two or more years of postsecondary education or training.”

 Specific areas of job growth outlook percentages are:

                 High School Completion not required                                               =  19%

                 High School Completion required                                                      =  20%

                 Up to 2 to 3 years post high school education or training          =  42%

                 BA or Graduate Degree required                                                          =  19%
