Obama Administration Oversees Health and Environmental Job Growth
Growth within an economic downturn is an uphill battle; still, a couple of career fields have been fighting the trend and moving ahead with growth over the past year. According to President Barack Obama's Council of Economic Advisers, jobs in the healthcare and environmental sectors are growing remarkably faster than the rest of the job market as a whole.
As stated in Reuters, the Council of Economic Advisers will be releasing their official findings today in a report called "Preparing the Workers of Today for the Jobs of Tomorrow," which will cover not only analysis of U.S. Labor Market trends and data, but also what type of education and training is needed to best help citizens interested in breaking into fields on the rise. Over the weekend in a piece for the Washington Post, President Obama stressed the importance of education and career training in securing a better future, stating, "in an economy where jobs requiring at least an associate's degree are projected to grow twice as fast as jobs requiring no college experience, it's never been more essential to continue education and training after high school." Part of the added attention to career training will be the strengthening of vocational institutions like community colleges, where programs like environmental science degrees, nursing degrees, and other types of medical assisting degrees are all expected to grow rapidly as more employees are needed in these expanding fields.
Rahm Emanuel, Obama's chief of staff, held a meeting with the Democratic Leadership Council weeks ago, in which he stated that a major education initiative was in the works to deal with improving community colleges. In addition, attention may be directed toward construction trade schools, as the Labor Market has also predicted "a rebound in employment in construction and some manufacturing sectors" as the economy and stimulus spending start to improve in the coming years.
