Demand for college-educated employees is on the rise, a trend that can be a mixed bag for job hunters.
From 1967 to 2007, the share of high-skill managerial and professional jobs rose from 21 percent to 35 percent of U.S. employment, according to a new report from Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce. Over the same period, the report noted, the share of college-educated workers rose from 13 percent to 32 percent, and those workers are producing more than half of the country’s economic output.
“For those who get a post-secondary education, and who get it in the right field, it’s a very positive story,” said Anthony P. Carnevale, the center’s director and lead author of the report.
