PEARL RIVER, NY — Over the past year or more, Educational and Health Services has been New York’s hottest job sector. Education and Health Services is known as a “supersector.” What does that mean? In this series, Patch is exploring what it means and and where the jobs actually are.
This week we look at one of the subsectors of that big, big category: Social Assistance. And in that subsector, we’ve found lots of jobs ranging from purchasing to public relations, advertised by companies and agencies around the lower Hudson Valley on indeed.com.
First, what’s a supersector? It means that according to labor experts, who use something called the North American Industry Classification System, there are two sectors and 11 categories inside this one supersector.
