Most people want a job that will challenge them and maximize their skills and experience, but most people also like stability in a job. How can you know if the field you are interested in offers long term career growth? Each year, the Department of Labor issues its Occupational Outlook Handbook showing the jobs with the best projected growth for the next 10 years.
As you can see, not all the jobs require a college degree, some require technical degrees, and some require a combination of certification, experience, and skill.
