By identifying local skill clusters, job seekers can better match educational pathways with career opportunities in their area.
Through an analysis of over 68,000 job postings in Bexar County from March 2019 to February 2020, UTSA identified the most sought after skillsets by employers. For inclusion in the analysis, a posting must request a high school diploma or an associate's degree as the highest education level required to apply.
The top five skill clusters included: administrative support, customer support, healthcare, information technology, and sales. Often, multiple skill clusters were found in a single job posting. For instance, an information technology job posting may also request customer support skills.
