There’s a new information source for those who want to investigate top jobs and industries in the Triangle region. Trianglecareerpathways.com was developed specifically to provide job descriptions, education and training requirements, and resources for job seekers, career-builders, or career-changers. What’s unique about the site is it only features occupations that are high-growth and high-demand; those that employers are having a tough time filling.
Career pathways provide options for career growth by showing job entry/exit points along with typical qualifications and wages as one gains knowledge and experience along the way. For example, one may enter the information technology career pathway as a help desk support specialist with an associates degree and a certification. After some experience, the person may decide to get new certifications to qualify for a higher paying job in the field. While some may be content at that position, others may decide to enroll for a 4-year degree in order to go even higher.
Perhaps someone is already at a mid-level position. They too can find out what jobs and requirements are required to move higher, or they may choose a lateral position that fits the career change they’d like to make. It’s all about options!
There is also a resource page where users can find training providers or download career guides and other useful information.
Trianglecareerpathways.com is the result of collaboration between CAWD, Durham and Kerr-Tar workforce development boards.
