WHAT IS THIS?
Map Your Career is an educational tool designed to illustrate the current and predicted labor market in Seattle-King County. These resources are grouped into industries—like “healthcare” or “manufacturing”—big parts of the economy, chosen based on their projected growth, job demand, and potential for career advancement.
For each industry, learn about current trends, sample wages, and career pathways. Use this information to add to your own feelings and intuition about your interests and passions, how you see your future, and what you hope to achieve throughout your career.
WHO MADE THIS?
The Workforce Development Council of Seattle-King County (SeaKingWDC.org) links talented people with bright careers, and oversees WorkSource Seattle-King County (WorkSourceSKC.org) at more than 40 locations, part of the statewide WorkSource network (WorkSourceWA.com) and nationwide American Job Center Network (CareerOneStop.org).
WHERE DID THIS INFO COME FROM?
The government and other groups spend a lot of time studying who does what kind of work, how much money they make, where they live, and who’s hiring. When all this data is put together, we get a general picture of the economy—which parts are growing and shrinking, and which are likely to be good choices for people looking for jobs.
For this resource, we’ve compiled information from EMSI, JobsEQ, the United States Census, and aggregated job postings from sites like Monster and Indeed.
