Education Pays in Today's California Job Market

With an estimated population of 38,487,889, California is the most populous state in the U.S. California's top industry is trade, transportation, and utilities, with international trade accounting for approximately 25 percent of the state's economy. California's top exports include computers and electronic products and food and related products. California's economy has taken a beating in recent years but World Trade Organization economists predict that world trade is set to rebound in 2010 with a growth of 9.5 percent, which is good news for over one million workers currently employed in high-paying California jobs related to trade and export.

California job market and career outlook

The LA Times reports that California industry sectors added 39,000 jobs across all industry sectors in October 2010, the first significant increase since 2006. According to the California Employment Development Department, in the decade ending in 2018, some computer related careers should see a significant increase in job opportunities. Medical scientists, biochemists and biophysicists, and biomedical engineers are also expected to see job growth between 46 and 80 percent depending on the career path.

California education opportunities

Education is a priority in California, home to more than 650 postsecondary institutions. In 2009, the California Postsecondary Education Commission reported that Californians with some college earned $35,643 while those with bachelor's degrees earned $51,983. With 2009 mean annual salaries of $73,078, graduate and professional degree holders earned considerably more than the national figure of $62,313. Bureau of Labor Statistics data also show that, in addition to higher salaries, more education generally equals significantly lower unemployment rates. A degree from California schools can pay off, especially in California's tough economic situation.
