A Preliminary Assessment of Occupational Opportunities in the District of Columbia for Bachelors Degree Graduates from Local Public and Private Institutions.
Federal City Coll., Washington, DC.
Meeting the challenge of developing programs responsive to the manpower needs of the District of Columbia in the 1980's is presented as a fundamental aspect of planning and development at Federal City College. Current employment opportunities in the District as well as forecasts of occupational demand for areas requiring bachelors degrees are presented and compared with current degree productivity at local public and private institutions. Comparisons reveal that shortages exist (and will continue to exist unless certain programs expand) for graduates in engineering, health sciences, and business, while local institutions continue to produce a surplus of graduates in the social sciences, psychology, and education. It is recommended that career counseling be strengthened and necessary steps be taken to expand specific programs which have high demands for graduates. (Author)
