Employment Surges for Community College Grads

USA Today (10/18/12) Paul Davidson

The U.S. Department of Labor reports a jump in payrolls by 578,000 to 35.2 million over the last six months for those with an associate’s degree or some college, while the gain for those with a bachelor’s or higher degree was only 314,000 to 46.5 million. It appears that midskill jobs lost during the recession are on the rebound, including computerized factory machine operators, heating and air conditioning repair people, X-ray technicians, medical record specialists, and low- to mid-level managers. Skilled workers who can be trained quickly also are in high demand. However, there have been few gains in employment over the past two years for those with a high school diploma or less.
