The following is from Kentuckiana Works:
Communities throughout the Greater Louisville Region along both sides of the Ohio River are focused on improving the quality of life and business climate for their residents. There are many programs and projects under way to increase education levels, provide skills training and strengthen the talents of the region’s workforce to attract higher-skilled, higher-paying jobs.
But how do students in this region – and job seekers – know what type of training or education to pursue to qualify for one of those higher-skilled, higher-paying jobs?
KentuckianaWorks, Greater Louisville’s Workforce Investment Board, has been studying that problem and has developed a series of six Career Pathways charts to help young and old alike chart their paths for careers that will grow their paychecks and grow economic futures for their communities.
The Career Pathways charts are part of a larger project, The State of the Louisville Regional Labor Market, which was launched Nov. 14, 2014, to provide information that is useful to many segments of the region’s population. The report will be updated each quarter beginning in February 2015. Click here to see the six Career Pathways charts from the Fourth Quarter 2014 report.
