Pittsburgh’s workforce is changing. Students need to know about the jobs that are right for them by the time they graduate high school. At the same time, experienced workers need to consider transitioning to new fields and training for industries with more growth and opportunities.

With Future Jobs, WQED wants to help job-seekers to discover new, promising career options when they start their job search, plus raise awareness about the workforce development that is already underway, helping the economy grow as workers find fulfilling careers and thrive in the Pittsburgh region.

Check out everything that’s a part of Future Jobs:

  • Each month, WQED will share new webisodes highlighting some of the hottest job fields.

  • Our education team will host screenings with discussion guides at local schools, and we welcome opportunities to work with more

On May 15, WQED hosted a free Future Jobs Expo in the Fred Rogers Studio. Attendees had a chance to explore employment opportunities in our region by connecting with prospective employers, schools and training providers.
