Teens Set Their Sights on Health Care and IT
Posted April 11, 2013on:
Everest Institute recently surveyed 300 high school students age 14-18, asking which field was most likely to lead to their dream job. The top two choices were health care and information technology, with education coming in third.
“The survey indicates that young people are quite savvy and realistic about the paths to successful employment,” said Ken Sigmon, regional vice president of operations at Everest Institute.
A large majority of those surveyed also agreed that getting good grades and a degree are important for finding that dream job.
Everest offers a variety of career training and degree programs for young people interested in entering the health care and IT industries.
