Current Issue:

While career development is particularly important for young people, individuals of all ages need access to information and guidance on careers. New technologies, heightened global competition, and the information revolution are transforming the nature of work and careers. Individuals must have access to accurate and timely information so that they may become fully involved in their career choices.

Included in the Career Table is information on the projected job openings for the near future, education and training requirements, and the earning potential for each of the occupations for your chosen field. This revised edition of Connecticut Career Paths 2013 includes information on the knowledge base and fundamental skills that employers often look for in job candidates. In addition, each occupation has been assigned to one of five growth ranks, from "growing much faster than average" to "growing much slower than average" based on its ten-year (2010-20) growth rate.

The Connecticut Department of Labor is ready and willing to help, support and guide you through this important phase of your career planning. We wish you well as you begin the journey to your future, and we are certain that the Connecticut Career Paths 2013 will provide you with valuable insight to help plan a road map to your most rewarding career.
