Higher Education

Since 2008, competition for jobs in most career sectors has been fierce. With older workers remaining in the workforce longer, and business and industry cutting back on hiring in order to stretch their budgets, the job market is tighter than ever.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that people without some kind of post-secondary education will earn 40 percent less and experience an unemployment rate that is nearly double the average for other workers.

Earning a higher education degree – whether through a traditional college or a technical/trade school – has become vital to securing employment and earning a decent wage.

Due to the renewed interest in obtaining a post-secondary degree, demand has increased for trained higher education professionals. Those who work in higher education can do so in an instructional capacity or as administrators and leaders.

To work in a higher education career, a minimum of a master’s degree is required.
