Idaho Launches New Career Planning Tool

The Idaho Department of Labor recently launched JobScape, which is a new searchable resource to help students and job seekers make more strategic choices when navigating the state’s educational opportunities and labor market. 

JobScape allows users to filter by region the market demand for occupations, the entry-level education commonly required, and typical hourly and annual wages for those jobs in the state.
 
Users can select the occupations listed to see more detailed descriptions, associated earnings, openings, and links to relevant programs of study available in Idaho.  
The tool also displays information about how many individuals earned different degrees or certificates from each of Idaho’s public postsecondary institutions for that job. 
 
JobScape was created with funding from the U.S. Department of Education’s Statewide Longitudinal Data System (SLDS) competitive grant program. 
 
WDQC applauds efforts like Idaho’s that make a wealth of education and workforce data more usable for students and job-seekers in a rapidly changing economy.
