An online tool created and launched by Kansas labor and commerce officials aims to help Kansans get jobs in the highest paying and most in demand fields. The site has two entry points, one for high school students and a separate one for occupations and college programs. 

Kansas Governor Jeff Colyer says, "In Kansas right now we have over 50,000 open jobs.  In our situation we have jobs looking for people, and at Kansas Career Navigator are going to help match those jobs with qualified Kansas workers."

Statewide, the top three high demand-high wage jobs include wholesale and manufacturing sales representatives, registered nurses, and tractor-trailer truck drivers. Registered nurses are #2 in Sedgwick County followed by aerospace engineers. Number one in demand high wage job in Sedgwick County is accountants and auditors.

When you log on to, you’ll have instant access to the top ten high demand, high wage occupations in your area, as well as information on wages, job openings, education and work experience expectations, forecasted vacancies and more.
