Congratulations to Mark McInerney

Visiting Professor Mark McInerney will soon become the director of the State of Maine’s Center for Workforce Research and Information.  The Center for Workforce Research and Information is the premiere resource for economic analysis of Maine’s labor market. The Center’s information is the basis for decisions on workforce development across the State, and is used not only by the Department of Labor but also by the legislature, educational institutions and industry.
Director McInerney will oversee a staff of economists and statisticians who analyze and report on a variety of labor market and workforce topics, including: high-wage high demand jobs; earnings of Maine college graduates; and, Maine’s unemployment rate. He will develop special research projects based on emerging needs, develop relationships with the Center’s federal government partners, and advise the Commissioner of Labor.
