More Ways than One: Career Education and the Pathway to a Well-Paying Job
Hemmelman, Chris
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J1), v85 n8 p24-27 Nov-Dec 2010
One of the most important components to the discussion of emerging careers is the recognition that the American economy will need an increasingly skilled workforce. According to the recent report, "Help Wanted: Projections of Job and Education Requirements Through 2018," the American workforce will be in need of 22 million new college degrees as well as 4.7 million new workers with postsecondary certificates. The report also notes that America will fall short of workers with associate degrees or better by 3 million. However, many parents and students hold steadfast to the cultural construct that a four-year degree is the only way to secure a rewarding and fulfilling career. This article looks at some of these careers and their earnings potential.
