By Nicholas Wyman. Whether you are recent high school or college graduate, or well along in your career journey, Job U helps you find your way to a more secure and prosperous future.
Get ready to re-learn everything you thought you knew about what a successful career path is. Some 3.5 million American jobs remain unfilled. Why? Because companies simply cannot find people with the skills companies actually need. The good news: the skills gap represents unprecedented opportunities for every person seeking a successful and exciting career. Crown Business (2015), English, 288 pages.
But these opportunities canít be found inside the walls of the traditional classroom. Instead, they lie in the myriad of educational options that provide the technical, vocational, and soft skills on demand in todayís workplace. Learn about new paths to rewarding occupations; where to find them and how to parlay them into the best paying job in any field such as:
-Professional certifications: Start your career faster in fields like bioscience aviation, culinary arts, and medical technology.
-Associates degrees: Increase earning potential through inexpensive 2-year programs in subjects like civil engineering, environmental science, education, and nursing.
-Apprenticeships: Earn while you learn under the direct supervision of a skilled expert. Far beyond the artisan trades, todayís apprenticeships can be found at companies like Volkswagen and Siemens.
-Occupational learning: Refresh or reboot your skill sets through on-the-job training or online education.
