Missouri Connections is a research and planning tool for high school academic planning, career, and college research.

Recent legislation, section 167.902 RSMo, requires that the department of economic development shall annually identify occupations in which a critical need or shortage of trained personnel exists in the labor markets in this state and provide such information to the state board of education. 

The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education school counseling staff has compiled and placed information related to labor shortages and job attainment on their website. This information can be found at this link and will update regularly.
