Staffing Patterns by Industry Clusters

A staffing pattern is a listing of occupations within an industry listed from most prevalent to least prevalent. Our experience is that, looking at the top 50 jobs in an industry, can provide you with invaluable information about the career path within the industry.

Questions that are answered include:

  1. Where do people enter companies in the industry?
  2. What are the multiple career paths within the industry...production, technical, administrative support, supervisory and management?
  3. What are the steps on the career path or, as in most companies, a career lattice (not just a vertical ladder but a web of lateral and vertical moves)?
