Education & Training
Specific education and training programs are often required to enter particular fields. Whether the requirements call for four years of college, specialized trade training or something else entirely, knowing the prerequisites is an important first step toward landing an eventual position. Prior to signing on for specific education and training programs, it’s not a bad idea for individuals to also perform a self-assessment of their interests, strengths and weaknesses. Career education and training programs are available in a number of settings. Today’s job seekers can find programs in traditional college settings, over the Internet and through trade schools. Regardless of the educational setting, it is important to weigh education and training requirements against personal interests, eventual career goals and even career trends to make certain a program will lead to a personally rewarding job that is in demand.
