The Texas workforce system is charged with developing strategies to target high-growth, high-demand and emerging occupations that are critical to the state and local economies.  Commonly referred to as “Target Occupations,” these lists of occupations are determined by  Workforce Development Boards (Boards) based on a number of economic indicators and local wisdom, and are used to guide workforce customers into aptitude-appropriate and economically relevant occupational training.  Key economic data about occupations and in-demand industries along with information about labor market trends and economic conditions, enable individuals and employers to make informed decisions.
