Entering nine years of employment expansion, Minnesota’s economy is humming along nicely. With large shifts in its population and labor force, however, along with low unemployment and record vacancies, the labor market has become extremely tight. This presentation will begin by analyzing generations in the workplace. How fast is the state’s population aging? Who is in Generation Z? What do these shifts mean for employers and future growth?
In the second half of the presentation, attendees learn where to find and how to use DEED’s labor market information tools. Attendees will navigate our website (www.mn.gov/deed/data/) and learn how to use the most relevant data tools to understand the local economy and provide the best guidance to jobseekers and other clients. Topics covered in this workshop include:
- Occupations in Demand and Current Job Vacancy Results
- Occupation and Industry Employment Projections
- Wage and Salary Data and Career Profiles
- Cost of Living
- Career and Interest Assessments
- Other data tools may also be covered upon request
