Emerging Careers Come into Focus
Reese, Susan
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J1), v85 n8 p18-23 Nov-Dec 2010
When career and technological education (CTE) began, known then as vocational technical education, only those with the most vivid imaginations and creative minds could envision it as it is today. Many of today's jobs didn't even exist when the baby boomers entered the workforce. Over the decades, CTE has maintained its commitment to preparing a skilled workforce, but those skills have changed remarkably. The founders of CTE would be amazed at some of the careers that have emerged over the years. Over the last decade technological advancements have been a driving force behind the emergence of new careers. In this article, the author identifies some emerging careers and how CTE institutions are preparing the skilled workers.
