As part of our outreach and advocacy efforts, the office of EWD conducts surveys to monitor in-district employer growth and emerging career opportunities. By identifying the skills and certifications these jobs require, PCC can make use of these metrics to better meet industry demand through targeted internships, customized educational programs and strategic investments in future courses, including both classroom and field learning initiatives.
