IN THIS YEAR 2010, 1 in 3 AMERICAN HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS LEAVE SCHOOL WITHOUT A DIPLOMA! OVER THE NEXT 10 YEARS THE YOUTH POPULATION, AGED 16-24 , WILL GROW 2.9% . AS THE BABY BOOMERS CONTINUE TO AGE, THE GROUP AGED 55/64 WILL INCREASE BY 36% . AND, OH MY GOLLY…OVER THE NEXT 10 YEARS 40% OF THE ENTIRE WORKFORCE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA WILL RETIRE. AND THE NEW HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA IS AN ASSOCIATES DEGREE.
  • There has been a dramatic shift from unskilled to skilled jobs in the commonwealth and across the country more than 70% of jobs require education beyond high school. Jobs for young people without a high school credential and some post secondary education are disappearing and those jobs that remain are not family sustaining . This is important to know. The mindset used to be braun. You were able to drop out of high school and make a wage to take care of your family. Jobs that at one time required a great deal of physical labor are now being replaced by machines. Technology is taking over our lives. This downturned economy is particularly bringing this message to life. Unemployment rates among individuals with out a high school education are at all time highs. Individuals you have high priority – high skilled jobs are working even in this economy. It is important to find a job that will keep you working even in these economic times. Education is not always the answer. And some of our guests will talk about their labor force and pathways to knowledge.
  • Continuing education after HS shouldn’t be an impossible dream for young people. A generation ago, a HS diploma guaranteed a good paying job with benefits and a pension after retirement. Today, that lifestyle is hard to come by with just a HS diploma. In the 21 st century economy, jobs that provide family-sustaining wages require postsecondary education. In addition to wages which we saw on the previous slides. A highly skilled workforce makes your stat more attractive for employers and fuels our economy. Communities benefit through increased tax revenue of working citizens. Over the course of a lifetime a HS grad is estimated to contribute $273,000 through federal, state and local taxes wile a Bachelors’ degree will contribute $408,000. Over the past few decades, there has been a dramatic shift from unskilled to skilled jobs in the country (slide) meaning that jobs of the future require a college degree or some postsecondary education. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that by the year 2020, the U.S. will face a shortage of 20 million qualified workers for the fastest-growing job sectors, including health care and technology.
  • Let’s talk about you. This club will be all about you. What are your likes What are your choices What is your career plan You can change your puppet. Go from the High School student with little or no direction To the puppet who has a driection Be that through Career and Technical Educaiton Through Community College Education Though a four year school.
  • OK now lets talk LEHIGH VALLEY – Updated monthly – Online 24/7 ALL info relating to LEHIGH VALLEY
  • CURRENT AND PROJECTED SKILL GAPS ALONG WITH THE NEED TO ADDRESS LITERACY, AS WELL AS READING, WRITING AND MATH AS FOUNDATIONS OF WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT, WE ALSO NEED TO ADDRESS OTHER CURRENT AND PROJECTED SKILL GAPS, SUCH AS PROBLEM SOLVING AND IDENTIFICATION, TIME MANAGEMENT, CRITICAL THINKING, LOCATING INFORMATION, JUDGMENT/DECISION MAKING AND TECHNICAL SKILLS. IN ADDRESSING SKILL GAPS, ESPECIALLY FROM A WORKFORCE PIPELINE PERSPECTIVE, THE WALL STREET WEST/WIRED INITIATIVE COMMISSIONED A WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT SYSTEM GAP ANALYSIS FOR NORTHEASTERN PA WHERE IT IDENTIFIED THREE CRITICAL ISSUES: (1) SCHOOL SYSTEMS NEED TO IMPROVE BASIC MATH AND READING SKILLS OF STUDENTS, (2) SOFT SKILLS AND CAREER AWARENESS MUST BE INCORPORATED INTO THE EDUCATION PROCESS, AND (3) BUSINESS AND INDUSTRY MUST BECOME MORE INVOLVED WITH CAREER AWARENESS. THE $1 MILLION NORTHEAST PA BUSINESS EDUCATION WORKFORCE PARTNERSHIP TRANSFORMATION INITIATIVE DIRECTLY ADDRESSES #2 & 3. THESE CRITICAL SKILL GAPS IMPACT EVERY INDUSTRY CLUSTER SUCH AS HEALTHCARE, SKILLED TRADES, LOGISTICS/TRANSPORTATION, MANUFACTURING, FINANCIAL AND BUSINESS SERVICES, AND SCIENCE/TECHNOLOGY/ENGINEERING/MATH INDUSTRIES.
  • This year for the first time – advertized in the paper in Chinese.
  • NEW JOBS TO PREPARE FOR GROWTH INDUSTRIES AND NEW TECHNOLOGIES, WE ARE KEEPING A DATABASE OF NEW JOBS AND POSITION DESCRIPTIONS TO LET EVERYONE KNOW WHERE THE NEW NEEDS ARE IN THE KNOWLEDGE ECONOMY.   SOME EXAMPLES OF COMPANIES THAT HIRE FOR THESE NEW JOBS ARE: PPL CORPORATION, LEHIGH VALLEY HEALTH NETWORK, AND GOOD SHEPHERD REHABILITATION NETWORK HIRE CHIEF INFORMATION OFFICERS.   CATASAUQUA AND ALLENTOWN SCHOOL DISTRICTS HIRE CAREER COUNSELORS.   ABEC AND B. BRAUN MEDICAL INC. HIRE BIO-ENGINEERS. LAW FIRMS AND HR DEPARTMENTS HIRE SARBANES-OXLEY AUDITORS. Still talking about What are the jobs. Let me make this decision even tougher for you. Did you know chances are great that you will have a job we have not even conceived of yet. I will tell you for sure when I graduated from college we did not have courses in Nanotech or Computer forensics or workforce coordinators, but they have come about in my lifetime and many more will come about in your lifetime. SO not only do you need to know what jobs are out there now that interest you, you need to know what jobs could potentially interest you in the future and later Anita will talk to you about skills you can use at any job. We call them transferable skills. So those tried and true jobs out there are only a limited number of what is out there. There are many new jobs out there and you need to be aware of what new concepts are happening out there and how can you respond. When you know about what is going on in the world around you so you are able to recession proof your employment. One of the ways to do that is by knowing what a high priority occupation is.
  • These jobs represent the fastest growing high-skill/high-wage occupations that are being filled with what are being called “gold collar” workers. These workers are resourceful problem-solvers and typically work in dynamic environments. To get these “gold collar” jobs, students need additional education after high school though not necessarily a 4-year bachelor’s degree. Note: I said high-skill/high wage. Employers are realizing a need for these high skilled workers and it’s supply and demand. Yes there are still professional degreed positions out there and some students are appropriate to seek careers in those fields. In fact, for each PhD scientist working today, there are 7 or 8 highly-skilled technicians -- making good salaries -- supporting the PhD. According to the PA WIB’s High Priority Occupations list, there are hundreds of family-sustaining wage jobs available in PA that do not require a bachelor’s degree but do require some postsecondary education – and we all need to do a better job of getting that message to students, teachers, administrators and parents.
  • GREEN JOBS SO WHAT ARE GREEN JOBS? GREEN COLLAR JOBS ARE WELL-PAID, CAREER TRACK JOBS THAT CONTRIBUTE DIRECTLY TO PRESERVING OR ENHANCING ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY. WHAT MAKES IT DIFFERENT FROM BLUE AND WHITE COLLAR? IT IS REALLY NOT DIFFERENT. IN FACT MANY BLUE AND WHITE COLLAR JOBS CAN ALSO BE GREEN JOBS, SUCH AS HVAC AND ENERGY AUDITORS.   WHERE ARE THESE JOBS? GREEN COLLAR JOBS TEND TO BE LOCAL JOBS AT SMALL, MEDIUM AND LARGE SIZE COMPANIES THROUGHOUT DIFFERENT INDUSTRY CLUSTERS. WE WILL LOOK AT SPECIFIC GREEN JOBS AND COMPANIES ON THE NEXT COUPLE OF SLIDES.   OVERALL GREEN COLLAR JOBS REBUILD A STRONG MIDDLE CLASS, PROVIDE PATHWAYS OUT OF POVERTY, REQUIRE SOME NEW SKILLS (AND SOME NEW THINKING ABOUT OLD SKILLS), STRENGTHEN URBAN AND RURAL COMMUNITIES, AND BY THE WAY…GREEN COLLAR JOBS SAVE PLANET EARTH. (REFERENCE: WWW.GREENFORALL.ORG/RESOURCES/GREEN-COLLAR-JOBS-OVERVIEW )
  • ONE IN SEVEN PENNSYLVANIANS IS A YOUNG PERSON (AGE 12-21). ONE IN THREE LIVES IN POVERTY. MORE THAN 12,000 ARE IN FOSTER CARE. MORE THAN 40,000 ARE IN JUVENILE JUSTICE. AND MORE THAN 26,000 TEENS ARE MOTHERS. 80% OF THOSE INCARCERATED ARE DROPOUTS. ONE IN 50 HAS LIMITED ENGLISH PROFICIENCY AND 14% HAVE A DISABILITY. TWO OUT OF FIVE URBAN 9TH GRADERS FAIL TO GRADUATE FROM HIGH SCHOOL IN THE SAME DISTRICT FOUR YEARS LATER. ONE IN SIX RURAL 9TH GRADERS, ONE IN EIGHT SUBURBAN. STATEWIDE, M ORE THAN 48% OF 11TH GRADERS ARE NOT PROFICIENT IN MATH AND NEARLY 35% ARE NOT PROFICIENT IN READING. 39% OF ALL STUDENTS, 60% OF HISPANIC STUDENTS AND 70% OF AFRICAN-AMERICAN STUDENTS SCORING BELOW BASIC IN MATH ASSESSMENT 27% OF ALL STUDENTS, 40% OF HISPANIC STUDENTS AND 46% OF AFRICAN-AMERICAN STUDENTS SCORING BELOW BASIC IN READING ASSSESSMENT. HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES EARN THREE TIMES MORE THAN THOSE WHO DID NOT GRADUATE AND COLLEGE GRADUATES EARN SIX TIMES MORE .
  • Use career guides. You can share this tools with your parents, they might not be as comfortable with the technology of career cruising.
  • Network enhances the Career Cruising experience by connecting career guidance with local employers and real world opportunities. Many of us do not realize how technical jobs have become. In fact 78% of jobs require some type of technical training and we want you to be able to talk to employers about that. We want employers to talk to you about their companies and their careers. So on October 16 th we will open the network portion of Career Cruising. With the network portion of Career Cruising if you want to be an Human Resources Recruiter, you will find that Sacred Heart Hospital hires H/R Recruiters and Kim Bower, who is a recruiter at Sacred Heart will talk to you about what she does at her job as a Recruiter. You will also see that Sacred Heart is not the only employer in the Lehigh Valley that hires recruiters you will be able to talk to other recruiters and ask if their job is any different.
  • Love you job – Can you love your job? How do you love your job? You will not have a fairy godmother come down from above – wave a magic wand and give you a job that you love. This decision will require some work. This is a decision and the first step in the career decision process is preparation. In order for you to be prepared You need to know – what are the jobs Where are the jobs What do those jobs pay What skills and or education do I need How do I get those jobs.
