The 2024 High Demand Occupations Dashboard is a user-friendly tool designed to provide access to the 2024 High Demand Occupations List and core labor market data for all Virginia occupations. It offers vital information such as current employment, median annual earnings, average annual openings, and a five-year workforce projection for each occupation. The dashboard also highlights how each occupation aligns with various programs, including the Workforce Credential Grant/Fast Forward, G3 funding, Registered Apprenticeship, and the STEM workforce. Users have the flexibility to tailor the data to their region by selecting a Local Workforce Development Area (LWDA) or Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) and can further refine their search based on specific career clusters, pathways, and entry-level education requirements.
WIOA reform promotes a shared understanding of the workforce needs within each State and fosters development of more comprehensive and integrated approaches, such as career pathways and sector strategies, for addressing the needs of businesses and workers. Successful implementation of many of these approaches called for within WIOA requires robust relationships across programs. WIOA requires States and local areas to enhance coordination and partnerships with local entities and supportive service agencies for strengthened service delivery, including through Unified or Combined State Plans.
