Help in Planning Your Career

Whether you’re in high school/college and planning your future, or already in the workforce and looking to change careers, a good way to help select your vocation is to look at future projections for jobs and professions.  The Colorado Dept. of Labor and Employment publishes each year a series of brochures listing the top jobs/careers projected for the next decade.  This is a great way to know which industries you will be most likely to be able to find a job in – and which careers to avoid.  The CDLE’s Labor Market Information section also provides online a number of other reports and brochures helpful for career planning, including specific industry information on health care, creative industries, green jobs, construction, retail trade, tourism, finance, manufacturing, and more.
