Career Jam 2022 CapNY Student Career Interests Findings Released 

Oct 13, 2022 06:05 AM

Thanks to our annual Community Impact Partner, Siemens, we were excited to commission an annual index of #CapNY student career interests, skills, & traits in collaboration with @Siena College Research Institute. Our findings released to the media by the Center for Economic Growth & Capital Region Chamber today show:

  • measurable & verifiable career awareness & exploration activities of 1,525 area 8th & 9th graders,
  • areas for improvement in making those career activities accessible to more students of all abilities,
  • student intentions for career pathways beyond high school & whether they intend to stay in the area, 
  • their prominent career interests, plus their influencers, and 
  • a shift in career sector aptitudes from their simple interests when indexed with students' skills & personal traits (would you be surprised that #manufacturing jumped to number 1!).

As a core component of the #CareerJam Explore ​program, these data will add value to support educators improving career development & preparedness for students of all abilities. For area employers, trades, economic and #workforcedevelopment stakeholders, it will inform how to invest in better career connections to inspire students to pursue skills needed for growth.

Please click to download, share, & read the remarks of some of our regional partners. Including the executives leading Siena College Research Institute, Hudson Valley Community College, the Capital Region Chamber, the Capital Region Workforce Development Board, and the region's Smart Infrastructure for Siemens Industry, Inc.​​​​​
