Oklahoma puts great value in education, and this is something that is likely to pay off for the state in the years to come. According to an article published by The Oklahoman, the number of job openings in the state that require postsecondary education is expected to increase by 62 percent in 2020. Additional details were given by Georgetown University, thanks to a study they conducted about job availability for 2010-2020:
“Occupations in the STEM disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — will grow by 19 percent, according to the data, with 12,000 openings for applicants who have a bachelor’s degree or higher, and 10,000 openings for those with an associate degree or lower.”
This data shouldn’t come as a surprise to Tulsa residents, however, because the city takes pride in its thriving aerospace, energy, and healthcare industries. Thus, jobseekers can expect to see a large number of openings for profitable Tulsa jobs centered on these fields.
