Workers in mixed-education occupations have a variety of educational backgrounds. Some of these workers have a bachelor’s or higher degree, and others have no additional education beyond a high school diploma. Workers in these occupations have such a wide range of education levels that it isn’t easy to classify the occupations into a particular educational-attainment category.
The mixed-education group is also made up of workers with some form of postsecondary education other than a bachelor’s degree. This group can include workers with an associate degree, certificate, or other training through programs at community colleges, vocational or technical schools, or specially designed partnerships between businesses and academic institutions.
The chart lists the 10 mixed-education occupations with the most projected job openings between 2006 and 2016.
These projections are from the Employment Projections program. To learn more, see "Job Outlook by Educations, 2006-16," by Drew Liming and Michael Wolf, in the Fall 2008 issue of the Occupational Outlook Quarterly.
