Default What do you think is the best field to go into?

I think anything in the medical field will be one of the best occupations. That or something to do with computers. What do you guys think. What career is going to stand the test of time?

There is a high-demand for people in the medical field. Nursing would be a really good one. They will never be left out of a job.

I agree with something in the computer field, like graphic design.

These 2 fields are just gonna keep expanding. All depends on what you like to do though.

Default future prospects in medical and CJ fields

In my opinion if you want to get a degree that provides you with future job security I would think that any medical type degree or anything concerning criminal justice would provide the most opportunites for employment. I base my opinion on the fact that there will always be sick people and thus a need for those trained to deal with them, and the same holds true for the criminal element.

Being one that is married to a cop I can honestly say the sad truth about the CJ profession is that you won't get rich but you can make a living at it.

Nursing has a very hogh turnover rate right now because so many people are getting int it for the wrong reasons, then finding they hate it.

A professor once told me that if you are good at what you do, you can always find a job. I've found he's right. If you are passionate about something and willing to become great at it, you'll find opportunities.

That being said, I think Engineering is a good field to get into. It pays well, only requires a BS and the US isn't churning them out quick enough.

I agree with you and your professor. It doesn't matter what a field pays - if you hate it you are going to have a rough time be good in it. That is ESPECIALLY true of any of the service fields (like nursing). Test the waters with some part time jobs or internships. It'll help with the job choice and look great on the resume.

I dunno... job market makes a difference, whether you're good at what you do or not. If you don't get hired and therefore given the chance to SHOW that you're good a what you do, how can you prove yourself? Where I live, the job market is terrible, and some of the most intelligent and capable people get left on the sidelines, waiting for a job.

As for best field... Medical definitely sounds good. Or entertainment. Health and entertainment, two things that every American wants. :P

I think anything in the entertainment field is a great career path to get into. The publics need for information is always increasing.

Nursing also looks good if you actually have an interest in that I see they are always offering sign up bonuses.

Default Graphic Design?

Is graphic design expanding? I lost of my graphic design newspaper job that I had over 14 years. I can not find another graphic design job. The freelance work is minimal and with all the time you spend with a client the money is not there.

What could I get into?
