High Wage, High Skill, High Demand Nebraska Jobs
The Nebraska Departments of Labor, Economic Development and Education collaborated to provide educators, economic developers, students and their parents, community leaders and career seekers information on the states’ high skill, high wage and high demand occupations.
Today's Hot Jobs are defined as High Wage, High Demand and High Skill. High wage is determined when an occupation has wages at or above the median. High demand is determined by the number of annual openings, the net change in employment, and the growth rate for the specific occupation. High Skill is defined as occupations which require some form of training and education beyond high school. All three factors must be present to be an H3 Occupation.
