Jobs Requiring College Degrees
Download (pdf)


Employment in Rhode Island is projected to grow at all education and skill levels, from jobs requiring on-the-job training to those requiring advanced degrees. During the projection period, it is estimated that employers will need to find workers to fill over 162,000 job openings. Job openings result from the need to replace workers who leave an occupation and from the need to fill vacancies created by business expansion. Nearly 30 percent of the projected job openings are attributed to the economic growth that is expected to occur during the projection period. The remaining job openings are due to replacement needs resulting from employee turnover. Thirty eight percent of the new job growth that is expected during the ten-year projection period is likely to occur among jobs requiring college degrees – Associate, Bachelor’s, Master’s, Doctoral and Professional degrees.
