The Best Careers for the Next 10 Years - Is Your Education Worth It?

By November 14, 2008

Follow me on:

While there are a lot of reasons that people go to college, make no mistake about the top reason - to earn more money.

Perhaps that's why I'm always getting asked something along the lines of, "What are the best careers for someone with my type of degree or education?"

Let me introduce you to O*Net Online, a website run by the U.S. Department of Labor.

Unlike websites whose "best careers" ranking is influenced by the advertisers on their site, this site gives you the real scoop on the various fields. Not only does it rank the fastest growing careers, but it also gives realistic estimates of the education and training required, as well as the income potential.

Before you invest anymore time surfing the web for a list of best careers, much less a few more years studying a subject without knowing its income potential, visit O*Net Online.

To get all the information you need to make informed decisions about saving, investing, borrowing, and paying for college, sign up for our free weekly newsletter.
