Keeping Current with Occupation Information

CareerLocker Update: Salaries & Outlook

School may be almost out, but the latest occupation information is hot off the presses or hot off the hard drive and into the internet! During the spring, two essential updates to occupation information were made available. These updates are from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor and Statistics (BLS) and the Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS). Here is a summary of what has been updated.

  • The most recent wage and salary information from BLS has been integrated into CareerLocker. New information is now available for metropolitan statistical areas (larger cities), states, and the nation.
  • A feature, only available on CareerLocker, uses data from WTCS on their graduation placement rates. Over 66%, almost 17,000 of their graduating students, responded to this survey. This data highlights the number of WTCS graduates in the labor force. A more detailed report on the survey is available on the WTCS website.
  • To explore how the data has been refreshed, check out the improved website. For an example of the updated wage and outlook data, view plumbers via the side navigation under outlook and salary.
