What is the best degree to go for now with the current job market?
According to the US Bureau of Labor and Statistics, the health care industry has added over 363,000 jobs in the past 12 months. It is arguably one of the hottest sectors of the job market right now with big needs for nurses, health care administrators, Dental Hygenists, and health technicans in a variety of fields.
At the same time the Bureau reports in June that the manufacturing is one sector that is losing jobs pretty fast with an estimated 541 mass layoff events.
As for degrees that are best to apply some of these will have to be up to your personal preference on what kind of job that you want to pursue.
Online degrees in the criminal justice, health care, travel, and computer and technology fields are very popular these days as there is more demand for highly skilled workers in all these fields. In today's job market getting just a basic general degree with a non specific focus is no longer going to cut unless you have good real world job experience to add to that.
Consider looking at those subject areas for degrees that might interest you and contact a school to find out more information about how long it will take to complete and other requirements.
