Will I be able to find a job?

When demand for an occupation is greater than the supply, it is considered to be in demand. Workers may have an easier time finding a job because there will be a demand for their skills.

41 more needed




Ignore: Chart tick marks












What regions have the greatest demand?

Greater Richmond Area 41 more needed
Virginia 41 more needed
Tidewater Community College 30 more needed

Germanna Community College 12 more needed


An oversupply or undersupply is shown for an occupation where I think the opposite is true. Are your numbers correct?
The oversupply or undersupply is based upon five-year projections of supply and demand with these projections based upon long-term trends. Long-term projections are used to help you gauge the job-market for an occupation over the length of years rather than the length of months. In the short-term, the job-market may fluctuate widely and in opposite directions. For example, a particular region may be forecast to have an oversupply of construction workers in the long-term, but because of a large building project over the short-term (from several months to even a year or two) there may be high demand for construction occupations. Another scenario that may cause a discrepancy is when a large firm is moving into or out of a relatively small region. Such a move may have a large impact on the demand of some occupations either increasing or decreasing the demand. The employment data shown in the Career Concourse (and which is used in the demand and supply projections) lags real time by about six to nine months. Therefore, a firm move just made or yet to be made will not be reflected in the current occupation employment or projections until six to nine months after the event. The bottom line is: use your own knowledge of your labor market to supplement the statistics shown in the Career Concourse.

What is Demand Gap?
The Demand Gap is the annual undersupply or oversupply of workers for an occupation in your region. These numbers are projections based on the most recent economic data for the region in which you are seeking employment. An undersupply represents conditions whereby not enough workers for that occupation are available that are needed. An oversupply represents conditions when more workers are available than are needed.
