Thank you for participating in the 2019-2013 InterLink Annual North Central Texas Region Employer Labor Market Survey.

Since 1987, this survey has been used by education decision makers in the 16 county Dallas/Fort Worth Region, to assist with planning future high school and community college Career and Technical Programs to develop skills and knowledge for the occupations you identify to be in high demand.

InterLink’s official region consists of the 16 counties of Collin, Dallas, Denton, Ellis, Erath, Hood, Hunt, Johnson, Kaufman, Navarro, Palo Pinto, Parker, Rockwall, Somervell, Tarrant and Wise.  

We are interested in all occupations including those that require advanced degrees as it provides students information on how to prepare for future careers.  The occupations identified for programs of study will be high demand/high skill/high wage (sustainable wage.) 

The information you provide is treated as confidential and company names are not reported.  Responses will be reported in aggregate. Respondents who complete the survey will receive the survey report by email.

About The Survey:
This is a 2 part survey. 

Part 1 identifies short term future employment needs.  We are interested in the demand for all jobs, whether primary function or support within the company. Please indicate your potential employment needs within the next 5 years. Though speculative, yearly comparisons assist with our annual forecast.

Part 2 is to determine how companies may use Robotics and Artificial Intelligence Technology in the future. This is so that we may inform instructors and students to prepare them with the skills and knowledge employers will need as they evolve.

  • The average time to complete the survey is 15 minutes
  • The survey will close on May 30th, 2019
  • Questions #5 & #6 are designed to get the same results and you may respond to either or both. Q5 lists the most often mentioned occupations in past surveys and you may insert the number you need.  Q6 allows you to write in the occupations by name and number needed.  Do not double count an occupation by listing it in both places. We have found that participants like both methods. 

    Note:  Do report the number of people you project to need for an occupation.  If no number is provided it inhibits us from understanding employment demand to determine how that occupation stacks up against other occupational needs. 

    Thank you for your participation! Feel free to share the survey link with others who would have an interest in preparing their future workforce.
