1 The Hispanic Scholarship Fund College to Career Aligning Higher Education Outcomes to Workforce Demand HIGH-DEMAND OCCUATIONS: MANAGERIAL AND ROFESSIONAL OFFICE repared August 2012 by TI Strategies Theory Into ractice

2 Introduction In 2012, the Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF) commissioned research addressing a critical issue facing corporate America in the upcoming decade: a dramatic shortage of college-educated workers who are adequately trained for high-demand occupations (HDOs). Our study analyzed data and projections behind that alarming trend for five occupational groups (see box, next page) to explore ways to mitigate or reverse this future shortage of educated workers. Founded in 1975, HSF is the nation s largest not-for-profit organization supporting Hispanic higher education. We provide American families with the financial and educational resources they need to achieve a college education and help America be more competitive. The roblem Despite current economic challenges, including high unemployment rates, estimates indicate that by 2018 the nation s employers will face a shortage of 3 million workers with college degrees. 1 Why? For every 100 elementary school students, only 21 graduate from college. The U.S. is the only country where college attainment levels among those just entering the labor market (25- to 34-year-olds) are lower than those about to leave it (55- to 64-year-olds). 2 By 2018, as many as two-thirds of entry-level openings are projected to require a college degree, leading to a decline in less-skilled jobs. Clearly, we need more college graduates to fill the job demands of the future. However, our research shows that the problem isn t simply a shortage of college students; it s a failure to match those degrees that are attained with the evolving needs of business. Many corporations are currently unprepared to handle this looming issue. What the Data Tells Us This report is an excerpt from HSF s full-length College to Career analysis that profiles managerial and professional office (M&) occupations. The analysis looked at recent college graduates chosen fields of study and how they relate to the career opportunities available in a range of M& industries and occupations. This data was then compared to the projected number of entry-level job openings from 2012 to 2018 in the highest-demand occupations of this sector. 3 For the study s purposes, entry-level openings are those that require an associate s or bachelor s degree and less than one year of work experience in a related field. age 1

3 Key Findings: The managerial and professional office occupations group accounted for 23.7 million total jobs in 2012, with the highest number of projected openings, 5.3 million through Nearly two-thirds (61%) of managerial and professional office occupations will likely require an associate s or bachelor s degree, second only to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) occupations. ersonal financial advisors will be most in demand, with more than 450,000 openings ( ). The next two highest-demand occupations (also financial) are accountants and auditors (more than 375,000 projected openings) and financial analysts (nearly 110,000 openings). High-demand human resources occupations include employment, recruitment, and placement specialists; training and development specialists; and other human resources, training, and labor relations specialists. These three occupations are each expected to generate 65,000 70,000 openings during the study period. The 10 top HDOs in this sector impact diverse industries, including finance and investment, legal services, human resources, and real estate development. While HDOs account for 30% or more of total employment in three industries accounting, tax preparation, bookkeeping, and payroll services; other financial investment activities; and business, professional, labor, political, and similar organizations each is reliant on just two or three occupations. Only one top 20 industry, management of companies and enterprises, employed seven separate high-demand occupations, accounting for 11.7% of the industry s total workforce. FIGURE 1.

Scientific Research and Development Services Fields of Study with a Critical Shortage of Graduates for High-Demand Occupations Business, accounting, and finance are the most popular fields of study that feed into the high-demand M& occupations. The study of human resource management encompasses the most HDOs, relating to four of the top 10 occupations. (See Fig. 5 on page 7.) Human resource-related fields show a wide gap between annual openings and completions. While the top four human resource-related occupations account for 40,349 job openings annually, human resource programs graduate only about 13,000 annually on average. Although there are an estimated average of 75,210 openings annually from 2012 to 2018 for personal financial advisors, the corresponding degree programs only graduate about 37,000 annually on average. However, because employers often do not require a specific field of study, the occupation draws workers from a range of degrees. Implications for U.S. Business Within this decade, nearly two-thirds of jobs created will require a post-secondary education. If America has any chance of remaining competitive in the global economy, then we need not only more college graduates in our workforce; we need more students to earn associate s or bachelor s degrees that correspond to high-demand occupations in all sectors, particularly the five occupational categories in our report, including the management and professional office sector. age 3

5 Strengthening and encouraging the link between students fields of study and the needs of business is of vital importance to: Achieve corporate recruitment goals; Ensure a pool of educated, qualified workers; Support ongoing talent development strategies for growth; Decrease the unemployment rate; Reduce offshoring of domestic jobs; Keep top American industries competitive in the global marketplace; Support the continued expansion of our nation s economy. HSF Is art of the Solution The Hispanic Scholarship Fund partners with American corporations and philanthropic organizations to align higher education outcomes with workforce demands by addressing the nation s skills gap in the highest-demand occupations that require college degrees. Via its Generation 1st Degree initiative, HSF supports first-generation Hispanic college students with the interest and ability to meet future workforce needs through: Community outreach Educational support Employer engagement To date, HSF and its growing coalition of companies and donors have awarded more than $360 million in scholarships to deserving students. For nearly 40 years, HSF has supported a broad range of outreach and education programs to help students and their families navigate collegiate life, from gaining admission and securing financial aid, to finding employment after graduation. If you are concerned about finding qualified, college-educated talent to meet your company s hiring needs in the next decade and beyond, we invite you to be a part of the solution by joining HSF s Generation 1st Degree initiative. ABOUT GENERATION 1 ST DEGREE Generation 1st Degree is the Hispanic Scholarship Fund s initiative focused on closing the degree gap between Hispanic students and their peers by helping at least one person in each Hispanic household earn a college degree. The goal of the initiative is to add more than 14 million new Hispanic college graduates by For more information, visit call HSF-INFO, or contact the Regional Development Officer who sent you the link to this report. age 4

(See Fig. 2.) In 2012, this sector accounted for 23.7 million jobs and is expected to generate 5.3 million openings between 2012 and 2018, of which 3.3 million (61%) will require either an associate s or bachelor s degree. The highest-demand entry-level M& occupations for college graduates are personal financial advisors, and accountants and auditors. Others include human resource specialists of different types, financial analysts, market research analysts, cost estimators, medical and health services managers, and paralegals and legal assistants. These top 10 occupations, totaling 1,414,575 expected openings (60% of the M& sector total), all require an associate s or bachelor s degree, less than one year of experience in a related field, and no on-the-job training.

9 About this Study and hsf Strategy The College to Careers analysis identified five occupational categories projected to have the highest demand for associate s and bachelor s degree holders: Managerial and professional office Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) Health care Education Community services and arts HSF s Generation 1st Degree initiative is focusing new scholarship funds on these categories, which will generate an estimated 5.4 million openings in occupations that require an associate s or bachelor s degree and less than one year of work experience in a related field, from 2012 to These openings are spread across 122 specific occupations. Within each of the five categories, we identified which occupations will be in highest demand both nationally and in HSF s primary markets: Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, and San Francisco. Of the HDOs identified, six are in high demand nationally as well as across all seven major markets. Registered nurses rank number one, followed by personal financial advisors, accountants, and three education positions. Other HDOs were more likely to reflect the industry specialization of a given market, e.g., software engineers in San Francisco, financial analysts in Chicago and New York. With the exception of Houston s strong demand for petroleum engineers, these market-specific HDOs were also expected to experience strong growth nationally. Founded in 1975, the Hispanic Scholarship Fund is the nation s leading organization working to address the barriers that keep many Latinos from earning a college degree. HSF envisions a future where every Latino household will have at least one college graduate, creating an enduring impact on the college outlook of Latino families nationwide, and strengthening the American economy for generations to come.

The full report 1) profiles occupations that will demand the most college graduates over the period, 2) identifies the industries that will be most impacted by those occupations, and 3) catalogs the fields of study that most closely link to the high-demand occupations (HDOs).
