Outlook: Career opportunity in the U.S.

Posted on: November 13, 2012

There are 29 million jobs in the U.S. that pay an average of $35,000 per year and higher, and don’t require a bachelor’s degree. Yet, we don’t have enough schools to train people to fill them. This is according to a report by a public policy group at Georgetown University.*

The report lists five ways high school graduates can get the technical skills employers want (without investing four to five years earning a bachelor’s degree):

  • Employer-based training
  • Postsecondary certificates
  • Registered apprenticeships
  • Industry-based certifications
  • Associate degrees

The good news is you can find exactly the type of career training the report recommends from Everest, which offers diploma and associate degree programs in health care, criminal justice, business, accounting, computer information science and paralegal fields. Students can usually complete diploma programs in less than a year, and associate degree programs in about two years.

For more information on programs, schedules and locations of Everest campuses in your area, contact Everest today. Programs and schedules vary by campus.
