Analysis of 1996-2006 Employment Trends for Hudson, Bergen, and Essex Counties and New York City in Relation to HCCC Programs.
This report is part of Hudson County Community College's (HCCC) work in providing analysis of employment trends for the following purposes: to help the college understand employment projections as they relate to its programs; to provide employment projections for upcoming program reviews; and to assist the college as it develops a strategic plan. The primary report used in preparing this analysis was Hudson County Estimated and Projected Employment by Occupation, 1996-2006 (hereafter Projected Employment), which provides growth and decline data for the following occupational categories: executive, administrative, and managerial; professional specialty; marketing and sales; administrative support; service; and production, craft, and repair. Because the data in Projected Employment cover a wide range of labor categories, an analysis of occupations related to HCCC programs was conducted and results are tabularized according to at least one of the following criteria: students could obtain employment within the occupation upon graduating from HCCC; or they could obtain employment after further study. The report concludes that food/beverage preparation, primary and secondary education, office administration and support, and information technology provide key avenues of employment for HCCC students in programs related to those areas. Virtually all employment categories require that students possess strong basic skills in the traditional areas of communications and mathematics, as well as in information technology. (VWC)
