Where Will the Jobs Be?
The Montana Department of Labor and Industry develops occupational job projections that predict which jobs are likely to be in demand in the future. The report includes information on current job levels, projected job levels, projected annual openings, median wages, and educational requirements.
Look up median wages and employment numbers for hundreds of Montana occupations. Statewide and regional numbers are included when possible.
For hundreds of different types of jobs the Occupational Outlook Handbook tells you the training and education needed, earnings, expected job prospects, what workers do on the job and working conditions. In addition, the Handbook gives you job search tips, links to information about the job market in each State, and more.
