Aligning Opportunities in Northeast Ohio
Northeast Ohio offers outstanding job and career opportunities. The challenge for our workforce, employers and economy, however, is that these opportunities don’t necessarily align with the knowledge and skill sets of our current talent pool. Jobs in growing, high-potential industries, many offering family-sustaining wages, often sit vacant due to the limited number of qualified, credentialed candidates.
The below report analyzes the job demand and supply picture for the 18 counties of Northeast Ohio. It looks at programs being offered by 134 institutions, 96 occupations and 19 wealth-creating occupation groups. The report is made possible by a grant from the Cleveland Foundation and generous support of The Sherwin-Williams Company.

The job demand report can also be used by local community colleges and trade schools when creating curriculum for Northeast Ohio residents to better understand what occupations offer the greatest opportunity.
