Career Guidance: Industries at a Glance
Be informed! It is important to do some research before you change jobs or embark on a new career. You don't want to choose a field that is shrinking, or pick a job that will be obsolete in a year. You need to plan ahead to ensure that you make an informed decision.
Choosing a career is one of the most important decisions that you will face. It affects almost every aspect of your life – financial, professional and even personal. So before you pick up the classifieds or search for job leads on the Internet, do your homework.
Consider -- Is there positive growth in the industry? Will there be opportunities in your field five years from now. Do you need formal training?
Take a look at some of the top-performing industries:
Medical - The medical industry is projected to have the strongest employment growth of any industry within the next decade. Continued advances in technology, as well as a growing population, will spur this growth and create opportunities for well-trained individuals. There will also be more opportunities to record, transcribe and manage data as older individuals require greater numbers of medical tests, treatments, and procedures. The number of group practices, clinics, and other health care facilities will increase at a steady rate.
