Occupational Research Group Manager, Labor Market Information Division
State of California EDD
Cynthia Solorio started with EDD in the Unemployment Insurance (UI) Program. Later, she transferred to EDD’s Central Office responsible for UI policy, procedure, and legislative analysis. She worked in Workforce Services and Tax Branch before joining EDD’s Labor Market Information Division. She currently oversees the work of 35 staff involved with skills research, career guides, and industry and occupational employment projections. Due to heighten interest in the emerging green economy, research efforts lead to the establishment of the Understanding the Green Economy Web page, which serves as a national clearinghouse for green research. EDD recently published results from California’s green economy survey and received special grant monies to continue green occupational research. The most current green publications can be access through the www.labormarketinfo.edd.ca.gov Web site or by accessing “Green” Job LMI—Occupational Guides from the Understanding the Green Economy Web page.
