As the U.S. economy slowly rebounds, the nation's community colleges are focused on putting Americans back to work. Across the country, training programs in emerging career fields, including nuclear, wind, and clean coal production, vie for the attention of job seekers in search of a more secure financial future. But these shiny new careers aren't the only ones with promise. Dozens of industrial education courses for electricians, plumbers, professionals are evolving in lockstep with new technologies, generating substantial earning potential for students willing to update their skills for the next generation of work. In this article, the author talks about new opportunities in less-heralded industrial careers, including welding, electricity, and construction.
