Goal of this blog

The goal of this blog is to put the spotlight on a different job with each time so prospective students can make intelligent and informed decisions on what career they are about to embark on.  These are not opinions- it is an aggregation of facts from various metric driven websites combined with personal insights presented in an easy to read format.*

Did you read my last blog that focused on the role of Web Editorial Assistant

Thank you for the information, but why should I listen to you?

When I was a student I always felt that some of the institutions I attended cared more about signing me up than helping me land a job. The goal of this blog is to help give students, prospective students and even their parents some real information about the current job market and what to expect. All of the information here are from metric and data driven resources and not speculation or opinion. I believe that if students are informed and have realistic expectations that they have a better chance to succeed and to find real work.

As with any complicated topic, there can be 50 ways to do something differently than the way I suggest or discuss. Feel free to do research on your own and to come to conclusions your way- I always encourage critical thinking and questioning.
