Comprehensive Manpower Study. Final Report.
Marson, Arthur A.
In order to assess the job market in the Moraine Park Vocational, Technical and Adult Education (VTAE) District, a questionnaire was developed and sent to 3,811 companies, businesses, and institutions in the District. The 1,180 survey responses represented a 31 percent response rate. However, a majority of the large businesses in the District responded, so in all over 50 percent of area employees were included in the study. A total of 544 different occupations were classified according to the Dictionary of Occupational Titles classification system. This document lists the qualifications for employment, average wage, and the anticipated number of job openings for the next five years for each of these occupations. In addition, a listing of various programs and courses which area employers would like Moraine Park Technical Institute to offer, and an evaluation of occupations which employers find difficult to fill are presented. Based on this information, which is extensively tabulated in this document, these recommendations are made: (1) Moraine Park should initiate or expand course offerings in the following areas: telephone repair, sewing machine operation, mechanics, food service, finance, insurance, and real estate; (2) a coordinating unit for manpower information should be established; and (3) more emphasis should be placed on personal development in all Moraine Park courses.
